The most notorious form is middle class suburban white kids imitating the urban black culture.
Note that it's the middle class culture, not the race, that determines whether someone's a poser.
Also, I have heard that the more “African” you look–dark-skinned, coarse hair (think Wesley Snipes, Whoopi Goldberg)–the more ignored and overlooked you will be in the workplace … Isn’t diversity supposed to be inclusive of everyone–natural hair, blue eyes, fine hair, etc.?
and the more light-skinned or “whiter” you appear (think Halle Berry or Beyoncé) you appear, the easier it is to get promotions. Also, why does wearing natural hair, braids, locs, twists or any “Black” hair style that accommodates and is more healthy for our hair structure have to always be perceived as something negative, or worse, “political”?
Question: I am a Black woman from continental Africa who chooses to have natural Black hair, not relaxed or chemically altered in any way.
I wear my natural hair not as some political statement but because it is the hair that God gave me and intended me to have, just as it was intended for some Caucasians to have blue eyes or blond hair.
Non-Asian guys usually take a step back, take a good look at me, and, with the little wheels in their heads slowly chugging away, they find the only feasible sentence worth saying is, simply: To which I cheerfully reply, “Nope. I just hate ugly faces.” Watching them walk away with those faces contorted with puzzlement is so amusing, but that’s only if they leave at that moment. “Well…what do Asian guys have that make them so special? You’re too young to say what you do and don’t like…” etc.
Well, since today is #White Girl Wednesday, I said why not acknowledge said elephant. White girls just jump in the pool without any care. Despite being born just two minutes apart, twins Myla (second from right) and Anaya (second from left) couldn't look less alike.One was born with white skin like their mother Hannah (right) while the other takes after their dark-skinned father Kyle (left)'Myla is always on the move she's already crawling, although backwards, while Anaya's more laid back. No running through your phone and wanting to know who such and such is. White girls cater to and love to take care of their men. There’s no nagging, complaining, and other annoying ass behavior. One is black and has big brown eyes; the other is blue-eyed with light hair and fair skin.
