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.
