Why do black people straighten their hair if non-black people can't get corn row/ box braid/ whatever you consider a "black" hairstyle

lordbape:

why do white people always try to make this non-point false equivalence when they know these are two completely different realities that don’t compare on any plane whatsoever

white people not only make black people hate their hair at an individual emotional level but literally at a systemic level in which black people are and have been for the last century unable to get jobs, attend colleges, enlist in the armed forces, etc. because of the treatment of their natural hair. there literally is nothing white people have to compare…

white people are not getting box braids because they feel pressured to, or out of fear that they won’t have access to a job or anything, but instead because they know it’s an “edgy black people thing” that they’re doing to be counter culture and subversive. there is literally no pressure on earth for anyone INCLUDING BLACK PEOPLE to worship or utilize Black hairstyles or Black hair in its natural state and you fucking know it. It’s literally the complete opposite for white hair. grow up

white people are not gelling down baby hairs for social mobility or financial security or comfort or assimilation.

"MEN WHO GO PLACES" "WAS IT HER RESUME OR HER RELAXER?" white people don’t have ads telling them "you will not be successful in life unless you have cornrows and box braids with gelled down baby hairs" because that isn’t the case. address this in the context of reality, maybe???

Do the people/men against this new women ghostbusters thing realize that by fighting it they are ultimately making it more popular? Why don't they understand that if they don't want to see this movie made just DON'T GO SEE IT. I wasn't really into the originial Ghostbusters so if I had randomly heard about this I wouldn't get that excited but based on these idiots' responses, I'm definitely going to see it now. Or is that just me?

Hahahaha I think that’s the best part, if this happens everyone will have been talking about it for a year. It reminds me of that quote in Harry Potter…

Jo Rowling understands how the world works hahaha. 

That’s nowadays called “The Streisand Effect”.
