I recently watched a television show about standards of beauty around the world. I sat in awe as little Chinese girls went ga-ga for White Barbie, and their mothers and sisters stood in a drive-thru line to have a surgeon slice away the fat from their eyelids to make them more Euro-chic. On one level, it felt good to know that African-American women are not alone in the emotional struggle to love ourselves enough to call ourselves pretty. But that feeling quickly vanished as the show then focused on Nigerian women who loathed their natural locks, opting for lye to straighten them out and a needle and thread to weave in wigs of women
Hey, that's a clever way of thinking about it.
Thanks for commenting, Michael. You may be right about what he meant. Perhaps he meant specifically in schools, which I would also agree with. I think I was pulling more from his tone than anything else, which is never really fair to do. Good point.
