The Opinionated Male “Loves Black Women That Love Their Hair “

I recently came across a blog called the “Opinionated Male” where an author, Mr. Sobo, writes about whether or not black women “are going natural for life or fashion” and “why he loves black women who love their hair”.

He begins by describing an autumn night, a Friday to be exact, where he was heading out with a few of college compadres to a popular nightclub venue downtown. He then spots a beautiful woman but the most beautiful thing that stood out to him about her was her hair. Check out his description:

Kathleen Cleaver | “Why We Wear Our Hair Like This”

“We were born like this, but they want wigs like this!”

She so succinctly explained how colorism, western standards of beauty, and racism have affected the black community.  Black is indeed beautiful! Spread the word!
