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.
