Negro Please Alert: Sheryl Underwood
So let’s set the stage…
One weaved up black woman? Check.
Crowd full of white people? Check.
Degrading comments about the exact hair that grows out of black woman’s head? Check.
And hilarity ensues. Because, you know, those black people always hate their hair.
Last week on The Talk they discussed weird things people save. It was mentioned that Heidi Klum saves her biracial sons’ hair.
Cue host Sheryl Underwood:
I’m sorry but why would you save afro hair? You can’t weave in afro hair! No one walks into the hair place and says ‘Look here, what I need is curly, nappy, beady hair.’ That just seems nasty.
After co-host Sara Gilbert responded that she also saves her son’s hair, Sheryl replied:
Which is probably that beautiful, long, silky stuff. That’s not what an afro is.
Po’ child. I guess no one ever told her that afro hair can be beautiful. Or that people do indeed get weaves with that “nasty” stuff. Or that the silky-straight Farrah Fawcett wig she’s sporting is not her real hair.
Positive self-image? Check.
Healthy, nappy, kinky, beautiful afro hair? Check.
Moving on with my life? Check.
What are your thoughts on the video? Leave a comment and let’s discuss.
We love afro hair.
