"I am sick of seeing all those commercials with ethnic/nappy/natural hair!"
I'm not gonna lie and say I remember WHERE I actually read this comment, I must also admit I am paraphrasing because I was only skimming a mag and my mind was actually somewhere else. Later that day, when I slowed down for a minute, I was really shocked and wished I would have paid more attention to the comment.
After I let the thought sit and fester I started asking myself why someone would be offended or angry by Black women with Natural hair being used in commercials.
Could it be some relaxed women are feeling the media thinks all Black women are Natural?
Could it be some Naturals feel these are merely marketing ploys to get Naturals to buy their products?
Are these just some Black woman who find the 'ethnic' or Natural look embarrassing?
Not a clue but I thought it would be interesting to give my take on them.
