sarrahhsmillee-deactivated20141 asked: 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.

Health, Africa, and Debunking Myths in the Time of Ebola
By: Freda Koomson
I was recently privy to a conversation amongst African-American celebrity artists where some of their fears and concerns surrounding Ebola, it’s transmission, and it’s existence in the US, were candidly expressed. One artist even went so far as to gasp in fear “My cab driver on the way over here was African!” Understandably the world is at a standstill and it appears everyone from West Africa and specifically the 3 countries most heavily affected by Ebola are deemed unapproachable lepers in the face of this year’s growing Ebola epidemic.
American academic institutions are preemptively restricting travel to the region and memes aboundeth as to the lunacy of some of these attempts in light of the deadly risk-taking behavior many engage in daily. Amidst all of this hullabaloo, ignorance too abounds, and so do the myths surrounding Africa, Africans, and their  approach to health and healthcare. The media has also not helped assuage fears surrounding the topic.
It is time the world stops stringently holding on to an image of Africa as land of the unhealthy, starving poor. Relatedly while colonialism has rendered the continent more vulnerable to certain factors which hinder accelerated improvement and developmental progress, Africans have been and are still poised as  “health-conscious” and health embracing human beings despite what the media and sensationalist appeals to “help Africa” might lead one to believe. What has been lacking is a mixture of the right political will and focused funding efforts to solve the continent’s healthcare infrastructural woes.
