lexdr said: How can you stand for so many right things and then stand for a deal of wrong things as well? I think you're so beautiful, and I love your blog. But I honestly don't see how you preach on how the black community is treated by the white community and then turn around and spew hate on a white female for how she chooses to wear her hair? Doesn't that sound familiar? Does it not hurt you when someone asks if your hair is real? Don't you think it hurts her to receive hate like that? Just wondering.

dopenmind:

Before I have answers I have questions:

In your reblog comment, why did you mention that you are of mixed race? I’m curious. Why does being multiethnic make a difference in whether you feel something is just or unfair? Was that to make your stance seem more valid or was the to serve some other purpose?

Okay, now answers:

I knew this was coming. I knew someone would come to me and essentially call me a hypocrite. I’ll admit I was fuming the first time I read this message but I’ve since taken a deep breath. You lucked out.

Firstly, I am not spewing hate and I think the insinuation that I WOULD “spew hate” is what upset me the most. I am not a hateful person. I do not hate that woman. I don’t even know her to hate her. “Hate” is not a word you can just assign to something you personally deem negative. She is simply an example, a figurehead. 

For a few days now a post authored by that woman has repeatedly made it’s way across my dashboard. She posted a picture of a male friend, a white guy, with a large section of matted, unkempt hair with a caption that said something like, “see, white people’s hair does dread naturally” as if to directly refute the age old and valid disapproval of non-blacks with dreads by blacks with locs and other denominations of afro-textured hair.

Do you understand that since the moment we arrived here as cattle we have been discouraged from seeing ourselves as beautiful and convinced that our hair is dreadful? Do you understand that white people in power continue to make it unacceptable (ex. what’s going on in the army right now) for black people to wear their hair the way it naturally grows from their scalps? Manipulated or not? Meanwhile when their daughters and nieces want to seem more earthy and natural and cool they do this to their hair and say it’s the same thing. And if you take a look at her blog and the blogs of many other non-blacks with dreads you see no images of black locs, only other white people with dreads. Do you understand that? You’re not going to see Chescaleigh on their blogs. You’re going to see other white people who don’t have the painful memories of a legacy being physically beaten out of them. Our hair, our music, our food, our culture, our lives, our bodies, our stories get appropriated everyday. 

And yes, it does sting when someone wants to touch my hair without permission or ask me how I did it. It stings when someone tells me they’re going to Florida and they’re going to come back as dark me. It stings when someone speaks to me jokingly in AAVE. But only white people have done those things in my life.

I don’t care how she or anyone else wears their hair. I care about how the idea of it causes even more erasure of my people and their culture.

I’m not hateful. I’m bothered. You ought to be too, mixed race or not.
