They’re Broke: Man blasted for shaming black women with natural hair



We all have this black hair story memory: Remember being told to sit on the floor between our mother’s legs with a numb backside having our hair done? What about the impatient tugging because my natural hair is tough, and the threat to cut all my hair off if I didn’t look after it properly.

But one man on Twitter attracted the wrath of women by saying that girls rocking natural hair are broke.


Women have clapped back at the man with these comments:
If you only knew how expensive caring for natural hair was. But I suspect you don’t care about the facts, your point was to ridicule black women. So…go off.

You must be broke also since you have the same natural hair as black women

Do your research, it is very expensive and time consuming to grow and maintain natural hair. Also being black and conscious is a natural progression in this era

Natural hair is expensive. What you’re saying doesnt make sense. Unless you’re the one who associates afros with poverty.

And weaves are cheap right? what a joke

How about talk about something you actually know something about? Dunce
