Trending on #BlackTwitter: She chopped his locs?!

Time and time again we see instances where black folks hair is an “issue” for “others.”

Once upon a time a young man decided to cut his hair.  He say’s in essence it was because he was being

racially profiled during normal everyday walks.  A white woman was seen in a tweet

from 2016 cutting his locs off.

That post has resurfaced and has people talking.  “And another Crusher let me cut his dreads off!!

It’s symbolic of change and their desire for a better life” ~ @Crusherclub.

The founder of the non-profit Crusher Club is benefitting from a $400,000 donation from the NFL

and Jay-Z’s Roc Nation.

The funds are shared between this organization and one other charity.

An apology has been issued for the “Incentive” photo and the cutting

of the young man’s locs. I know I’m judged for my nappy locs growing down my back.

It does not make me feel less than. I am however aware that some in society judge others

for their hair style choice, in most cases its people with black skin.

Should we change how we look to make ignorant people feel better?

I say not.  My hair, your hair, my child’s hair … is not the issue.  Think about that.
