but I don't want to look like her or any white person for that matter. I like my black nose, black lips, black ass, black eyes, but I hate black jelly beans. Black jelly beans are the devil and should be burned in white hell

I got my first weave in my twenties when I could pay for it myself. Why did Iget it? Cause i wanted long hair. I knew i could never make it so i said fucc it, I'll fake it.

How did I miss this thread?  
 
I think OP is right to an extent.  I think the media perpetuates the idea that long, flowing hair is the ideal for all women, which is why Kim Kardashian and many black women invest so much time and money into weaves.
 
I do believe that women in general aspire to resemble whatever it is that they believe their ideal man finds attractive. 
 
Its kind of a convoluted topic because its not always just that simple.  However, I do agree that for some it is a complex rooted in Eurocentric ideals.

I was anti weaves for a while. I wore braids and fake microwaveable pony tails but not a see in until college. I had gotten a hair cut and wanted a change. I had also just stopped relaxing my hair (which I hated perms because no matter who applied them, my scalp burned. I was under the impression that u could never stop relaxing, but when I learned that u could, I stopped) and wanted a different style. I never thought about white people. I was raised in an all black neighborhood, and I thought white people were alien looking.

Now why did I continue wearing weaves? At that point, I was 17 and I got hollered at more with a weave.

At 26, I switch between weave and real, natural styles. It's just how I feel that day. I never sew it in because the next day I might want to wear a fro.

With that said, I kind of do and don't agree with the op. some women definitely are screwed up in the head and wear weaves to look more appealing. I hate seeing ratty kanekalon. I always think, "wouldn't u look better with a picked out fro?" Why wear a raggedy plastic weave over ur real hair? That's when I question it.

But, weaves r pretty. Real hair is pretty. Just don't look raggedy.
