Coonish? Because you want your head gear to fit properly, especially when you actually have experienced it not fitting properly? Confused
 
 
 
There IS actually an in between "coonish" & "EVERY single thing is the world is a conspiracy against Black people." LOL

Please. Their head gear fit just fine over braids for years.

And yes very coonish of her. The BHM coon council president (Lilaca) can verify this.Approve

LOL
Hey, I say let them wear their hair any way they like. If it fits great, if it doesn't fit, that's on them. *shrugs*
 
Kinda like how some folks think that Airlines making an obese person buy two seats and not allowing them to spill over into other people's space and not being able to fit into their seatbelt is discrimination against heavy people, and it's surely discrimination and not for their safety and their neighbors on the plane.
 
But Lawd knows if the protective gear doesn't fit, there will be cries of "Why didn't the military ensure safety of it's Black women? They knew that their head gear wouldn't fit properly over those "Patra" braids and that Angela Davis-esque fro, and sent them to their deaths because they obviously hate Black women! They should've made some rules!!"
 
Of course I'm being extreme. Just joining in the fun.
 
We ALL know that the world hates Black women, gays and fat folks, and will do everything in it's power to ensure we're as miserable and unhappy as possible.
 
I'm overweight AND Black, so let me brace myself for a lifetime of torment and malicious and purposeful discrimination. Surely, it's coming.

I hope that they allow an early out option, without penalty, for women that feel that it's discriminatory.
 
No one makes anyone join, and many of these guidelines have been in place for years.
 
Just like school and work, slowly but surely, people become lax on the dress code, then in time, the powers start enforcing it again, usually someone went above and beyond "moderation", then folks get upset.

I think every Black woman can cornroll or braid her own hair (or even just wear a short afro) while they are deployed.

Why is not being able to wear 'twists' a big deal?
