Don't Worry, Be Nappy!

From The Cocoa Lounge

We were going to try to let the storm of the whole Don Imus controversy blow by without getting our hair mussed, but...

Black Womens' Response to The Imus Controversy

Now that we've officially washed this situation out of our hair, let's get on to celebrating it!:

Don't Worry Be Nappy

Amen again. Thank you for this post. There ain't enough black women sportin' the beautiful head of hair god gave 'em like it shouldn't be seen or something. F*** Imus and anybody else so ignorant they have to resort to talking about black people's hair and sexuality. That's playground stuff right there.

Simply beautiful – every last one of them! Natural is gorgeous!!!

Larry said...

Just looking at your photos, one would easily say that "Nappy" isn't an insult. It's just beautiful.

Wish my hair could do that. Both black and whites have to move on to heal.

Charece said...

I agree "Nappy" isn't an insult it's the "hoes" thing that upset me!

IGNORANCE IS REALLY SAD!

Natural hair is so beautiful. I'm tired of hearing about all of this negative stigma that's attached to black women rocking their natural hair. White people do it. Latin Americans do it. Asians to it. So, why can't we? And be proud?

I just found a new site called Goddess Zuri, www.goddesszuri.com, which offers apparel and accessories to young women looking to declare their natural beauty outwardly. Check it out when you get a chance.

Until next time, continue to rock the nappy and be proud!

beautiful hair, beautiful styles.

a lot of whites, asians etc don't wear their natural hair contrary to what you think!
also latin american is not a race..some are white, black, native, asian etc..and they too don't always wear their natural hair! but it's true maybe not as much as blacks (black americans I shouls say)...hey stop hating your own hair and be inspired by those beautiful styles!!

I think that everything posted was very logical. But, think
on this, what if you were to create a killer post title?

I am not saying your content isn't good., but suppose you added a headline that grabbed folk's attention?
I mean "Don't Worry, Be Nappy!" is a little vanilla.
You could peek at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create article titles to grab people to click. You might add a video or a picture or two to get readers excited about what you've written.
Just my opinion, it would make your posts a little bit more interesting.
