Random NYC at it's finest

I was all set to do a post on Black women and their continued hair issues, whether it be relaxed, weaved, or natural. There is too much judgement being thrown at people in every group and it's STUPID it's just hair!

I was watching the news when I started the post, and the reporters announced that Restaurant Week has now been extended to Restaurant Summer. Yes you heard right, several of the restaurants have agreed to extend the deals to Labor Day!  Six weeks of fantastic five star three course meals for Applebees prices. I no longer have any focus or want to talk hair, we can get back to that later, so I'll just post my favorite Hair response song and you can listen while I make reservations!

Just listen to Andre at 2:44

Now question is every ni**a with dreads for the cause?
Is every ni**a with golds for the fall? Naw
So don't get caught in appearance

I'm off to eat, while you all  think about that.

well, I am the biggest advocate for African American women staying natural for several reasons. But because you are natural I don't believe at All the you stand for anything. I speak about hair a lot because I understand the mask that it plays in many people's lives and really just want folks to start identifying who they really are without it.

I understand your reasons behind African American women being natural. I understand the mask as well, however I have been hearing a lot of negativity thrown at those that are not natural by the natural sect (and vice versa). And having been on both sides of the fence I think it's time for us to look at hair differently.

Lastly, this post is not about hair, its about restaurant week. Get with it Rasta!
