Firstly “people of colour”is an accepted term that refers to people who are not of Caucasian descent. Secondly, I would have to inform you that black people have been braiding their hair out of necessity and preference for a long time. So have some other races. The only difference is that black people are often discriminated against for them. Now let me explain something about cultural appropriation. It happens when something that is culturaly relevant and significant to people of color(that is seen as undesirable, frowned upon, or ignored by the social majority) Is THEN displayed by white people and suddenly becomes acceptable, pretty, sexy, cool, fun, or trendy. It is a slap on the face to the people who have been ignored, discounted, and abused for years. It pretty much tells prior of colour “it’s shitty when you’re doing it but it’s cool when we do it…you know because you’re shitty and we’re cool”
This is also cultural appropriation.. I think they just missed it
Dear buzzed…black menv have been wearing CORNROWS and French braids long before now and have been shit on for it. This is what’s called cultural appropriation. I figured you would wavy to know that.
