Can I Touch Your Hair?
Today’s stupid question comes from Los Angelista.
I found the link to her blog through a re-post of her original on Stuff White People Do.
The question posed by a white woman to Los Angelista, a Black woman with natural hair was, “Can I touch your hair?”
Los Angelista makes the points about what’s wrong with this much better than I ever could, but the audacity of the strange woman went well beyond the original question. Take the time to read this provocative post.
