Random Lovely Thoughts
So I was just wondering why it's not okay for white girls to have Bantu knots or baby bangs, but it's okay for girls of color to have long blonde straight hair? It just seems like double standards to me. Shouldn't fashion be available for whoever wants express themselves in whatever way they choose?

why is it ok for white people to define the standards of beauty, but whenever a black women even begins to love her natural hair it’s considered “exclusive” or “cocky”?

why is it called “ghetto” or “ratchet” whenever i embrace styles natural to my culture but it’s “classy” and “alternative” when a white girl in Vogue does it?

why is “being black” a phase for white people (who then can always go back to being white again and still receive the benefits of their privilege) but it’s something i need to tone down in order to get a job?

why is it that i have/still get denied access into public places because of my natural hair and skin color?

why is it that a black boy with a hoodie is considered “dangerous” when a white boy with a gun is called “emotionally unstable”?

why is it that we must never forget the atrocities of the Holocaust or Pearl Harbor but i’m supposed to get over the effects of slavery?

why is it ok for white people to talk about their 1/3 German, 1/4 French, etc roots, but the rest of us are “immigrants” who need to “go back where we came from”?

why is it that Ebola has been killing brown people for years, but it’s suddenly curable when someone with white skin contracts it?

basically white people will spend so much time worried about stupid shit like why they cant use other cultures as fashion or why they cant say the n word…

So go ahead and rock your box braids..nobody is stopping you..the rest of us will be busy dodging the system of oppression that’s forced upon us every single day…It just seems like double standards to me. 

but i mean shouldn’t basic human rights be available for everyone???

This is why I asked the question. I guess baby bangs isn’t a term, not sure what you call it then… I was just trying to get out the point that anyone should be able to wear something without it being a race thing. I honestly was just wondering. I didn’t mean “PoC” can’t have blonde hair naturally, but can’t “white” girls have kinky hair? Still being a little one sided in the answer…. Especially since I’m just asking about hair. I know “PoC” have been discriminated and hated, I know it’s rough, but it is beside the fact on this simple subject of hair…… Didn’t mean to offend anyone, just curious.

Pretty sure I never called someone ghetto or ratchet either…..

You gave your idea of a double standard therefore I presented mine. The hair subject is just the surface.. And if you didn’t see where I was coming from then there’s no point in tryin to drill it into your head. What? You wanted a different answer? One more sugar coated so that you aren’t uncomfortable? Congrats on not calling people ratchet.. But you don’t get an award for treating people of color like humans.

what the fuck is baby bangs…

Being able to find someone you click with so naturally is the best feeling ever. You feel like you’ve been best friends you’re whole life, it feels like you’re coming home. You’re so comfortable with them. Maybe that’s what a soulmate is. Not someone who shares every single thing in common with you, but someone who feels like home.

Exposure to cold makes body fat easier to burn. Scientists found that putting ice packs on problem areas can burn extra calories. Combine that with 10 minutes of shivering, which burns as many calories as an hour’s exercise, and you could literally freeze your butt off.  Source
