It says a lot that her statements are considered so offensive. You don't come for a black woman's hair hat, that's one thing you DON'T do, or you will be alone in this world smh.

I know this debate has been done to death but WHY can't people let people BE! 

Her latest gem. 



But that chile in the blonde does look silly, LOL

Are you really offended because this example really doesn't look like shaming tbh.  We've had threads about blonde hair here and the majority feel it's ratchet.


Honestly it's only recently within the past 5years or so naturals were "accepted" by black women as an alternative to perming, weaving and wig wearing.  When I started being natural in 2005 hardly I'd say roughly 10-20% of the women I saw here were natural. and now its more like 60%-70% and growning.

 Naturals were treated like second class citizens then and still in some ways still treated condescendingly by non-naturals.
  So if the woman wants to pump her fist and scream Natural Hair Power, I ain't mad at her Just don't visit her page any more but it kind of sounds like you are being overly sensitive perhaps.  Or to put it the BHM way: hit dogs holla?

Her business is suffering because she is alienating the very people she tryna sell to. Nobody is buying her stuff? Where the other naturals at? Don't blame the women that you're talking down to for not supporting you. You don't have to have a business degree to know basic PR.

natural nazis are so 2009...played out and redundant.

people who are already ashamed of their hair know themselves and dont need any shaming imo.

I don't think women with relaxers and weaves are interested in her wares to begin with...

I reaaaally don't get BHM's need to push the issue of self hatred under the rug like it's not a cancer in our community. 

Yes, we're allowed to have preferences, but what's guiding that preference? The answer to that question is why so many of us suffer from an inferiority complex...yet expect to build lucrative communities full of self loving black people. Oh.

Let me not derail your thread, ma. I know you expected the majority to eviscerate ole girl in the OP's opinion with some witty remark.
