A White writer saw Beyoncé in a wet and wavy weave and felt she was being personally affirmed. Can 2016 hurry? https://t.co/6kC2V3UqXp

Lmao no. The difference between Beyoncé's wet hair and Becky's stringy white hair is that one is a thousand dollar weave

How you gonna write about a black woman's hair when you don't know anything about the topic? How Sway?

Also, it's not a political statement, because Beyoncé has literally done this before.

That Atlantic article is more about Vogue than Beyonce because she has rocked the "wet" look on magazines before.

An actual act of political awareness is rocking natural hair, which many black women are denigrated for or looked down upon in the workplace for wearing.

But sometimes, not! You can wear your hair however you want!

Beyoncé out here just trying to floss and look good.

AND SHE DOES LOOK GOOD.

Because black women look flawless in and out of weaves.

But just remember that it IS a weave. A wet one at that.

Vogue

And anyone can rock a weave. Anyone.

It just won't cost as much as Beyoncé's.
