A choice quote:
“For too long, Black girls have been discriminated against and criminalized for the hair that grows on our heads and the way we move through and show up in this world,” said Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.).
Criminalized you say? For your hair and the way you “move through…this world”? This is a choice example of how blaque gals move through this world.
Whenever they “show up” in the world, chaos and violence seem to follow them.
A serious nation doesn’t devote even a second of time to the “problem” of racist hair rules.
