Q
Why do black people straighten their hair if non-black people can't get corn row/ box braid/ whatever you consider a "black" hairstyle
A

why do white people always try to make this non-point false equivalence when they know these are two completely different realities that don’t compare on any plane whatsoever

white people not only make black people hate their hair at an individual emotional level but literally at a systemic level in which black people are and have been for the last century unable to get jobs, attend colleges, enlist in the armed forces, etc. because of the treatment of their natural hair. there literally is nothing white people have to compare…

white people are not getting box braids because they feel pressured to, or out of fear that they won’t have access to a job or anything, but instead because they know it’s an “edgy black people thing” that they’re doing to be counter culture and subversive. there is literally no pressure on earth for anyone INCLUDING BLACK PEOPLE to worship or utilize Black hairstyles or Black hair in its natural state and you fucking know it. It’s literally the complete opposite for white hair. grow up

white people are not gelling down baby hairs for social mobility or financial security or comfort or assimilation.

"MEN WHO GO PLACES" "WAS IT HER RESUME OR HER RELAXER?" white people don’t have ads telling them "you will not be successful in life unless you have cornrows and box braids with gelled down baby hairs" because that isn’t the case. address this in the context of reality, maybe???

The way people of privilege think of racism (or sexism for that matter) is super fucked up.

To them it’s an arbitrary set of etiquette rules without any real consequences besides people getting offended if you don’t follow those rules. …like table manners.  You use the fork with the wrong hand, you are a racist. You don’t sit straight and lean on the table, you are a sexist. 

That is how far privileged people are able to understand the concept of sexism and racism.

To them it’s arbitrary enough to just ignore it. Arbitrary enough to demand that people would just stop being offended. Arbitrary enough so that it feels like an attack on personal liberty to have these table manners shoved onto you.

Even worse: The to them arbitrary connection between their behavior and charges of sexism/racism makes them feel like the victim of sexism and racism. WTF, when a white person leans on the table, he is a racist, but when a black person does it, it’s okay? YOU ARE RACISTS!!!!

The thing is, this missing link between their everyday actions/everyday culture and the real tangible harm it causes, makes them feel like the victim here and provokes them:

- to not listen
- to shut critics up
- to further deepen their racist/sexist biases because now “those people” are whining, needy and are also a threat
- to actively fight back individually and in organized groups

One wonders, why this ESSENTIAL connection between everyday privilege culture and the resulting every oppressive harm is not taught to kids. One would think this ESSENTIAL tool to stop being oppressive would be something that is considered essential knowledge as well. 

But then again, being a person of privilege has it’s perks, right? We just have to do something about our pesky conscience and what better thing to do then to pretend we don’t have privilege.
