I don't think she should have responded. Neither do I think she should have gotten so deep with her response. She doesn't owe anyone a reason as to why she wears her hair that way, unless asked by her managers. 

It is my opinion that they fired her because she talked about God and her God given natural beauty in the same light. They saw strength and a personal mission from her and they felt threatened by it, in true whiteman fashion. 
Ain't surprised one bit. 
If we'd build ourselves instead of others, we wouldn't have half of these issues.

So weird...there are two threads I wanted to make today. One about choosing alternative lifestyles/philosophies (veganism, childfree, frugality, minimalism, not believing in marriage, etc.) in the black community...... and one about the newscaster with natural hair who responded to a racist comment about her hair on the company facebook page and then was fired even though there was no actual social media policy that she violated.

I just don't like making threads I guess...or I figure other people will.

I think that is information she has the right to know, however. She asked why and these people basically acted coy! There is no denying race played a role in this when it comes to the multiple race-based incidents surrounding her due to viewer ignorance.

It's sad that these viewers felt threatened enough by her presence that they needed to question her on the fan page and her merely replying got her terminated. Truly a shame.

I was expecting a twa or something, that shyt look extra manly. However Im glad she stood up for herself, it's a shame she was fired for it. Guess the YT man didn't want her rocking the boat like that.

This is disgusting and even more disgusting that instead of rallying behind her, they terminated her. I know she hates she lost her job but damn, I wouldn't want to be affiliated with any organization that would support racism by firing someone over something like this ... thats exactly what they did.
