    this cultural appropriation stuff is really starting to make me crazy. If we’re gonna go with cultural appropriation, wear natural hair.
    If we’re wearing white lady hair, isn’t that appropriation as well?”

    Yeah they trying to mess the black queen up, they don't want her into herself, when in actuality they should be rubbing their darkness in everyone's faces, let's be real: we're the most hated on planet earth, public enemy number one in the caucasoid's heart, that right there gives you a glimpse into how our shadow is cast over this whole world, our existence rests like a stone in the heart of the other races, they fear blackness, they fear black people finally discovering just what kind of legacy was left behind

    Weave hair does not come from white womens head. India hair is the weave of choice. White womens hair is not as straight as India hair. White women want straighter hair, more hair.

    In the spirit of Brothers stop weave shaming Black women, until you are aware that women of all cultures wear hair weave. If you gonna weave shame Black women, you must include other culters of women who wear weave. Becky got a weave.
    To believe Black women are the only women who wear weave is a clear indication that women and weave is not in your area of expertise.
    To believe Black women are trying to fool black men to think the weave is real, is just idiotic(Tyrese). If a man, thinks a weave is the real thing, that's on him.
    Back to other cultures that wear weaves:

    Because Woopie said it doesn't make it correct. She wore some jacked up dreadful locks for years.

    Woopie said: [But] this cultural appropriation stuff is really starting to make me crazy. If we’re gonna go with cultural appropriation, wear natural hair. If we’re wearing white lady hair, isn’t that appropriation as well?”

    No one is wearing white ladies hair! Maybe Woopie not aware white women are copying Black women weave styles, using hair from India.

    Cultural appropriation of India women's hair by all cultures that wear weave.

    Not sure Woopie is a Sister of mine.
