5 Things Every Black Girl Is Tired Of Hearing

I could write a book on this topic, but I choose to keep this short and sweet.

Is that your real hair?


Whether your hair is long or short, everyone and their mama assumes a Black girl doesn't wear their natural hair. So naturally, they have to ask if its real or not.

Can I touch your hair?


This is the WORST especially because the person asking usually is touching your hair as they ask the question. NOT COOL.

You're pretty... for a Black girl.


What does this even mean?

You're so lucky you don't have to tan.


Do I even need to explain this one?

I like you because your not ghetto and/or loud


Excuse me? 1) How dare you assume my blackness relates to being "ghetto" and loud 2) I make you dislike me in two seconds if you dare to utter that sentence ever again .
