What message are we really sending?....
BLACKS BEING A
IF YOU COULD PICK YOUR RACE, WHAT WOULD YOU PICK?
BLACK WOMEN ASHAMED OF BEING BLACK
We live in a day and age where, many African American women wear hair weave as an accessory. Some girls wear weave to grow their hair, or in most cases as a form of fashion. But a handful of women wear weave to hide their "napps". Another way of looking at that is women hiding their culture. Many people believe that Black women of today are loosing their identities due to wearing weaves; and that the media is destroying black women’s minds, making them feel insecure about wearing their natural hair. This means that some believe black women are thought of as loosing their African culture, and hiding their natural beauty instead of embracing it.

WHY ARE PEOPLE ASHAMED OF THEIR CULTURE AND ETHNICITY?
By: Jubril Adeagbo, Gavin Davis , Maceo Davis, & Kevonshay Milloy
RACIAL PSYCHOLOGY: WHY DO BLACK PEOPLE WANT TO BE WHITE?.........
"Imagine if, tomorrow morning, you woke up and found that every white woman you saw was wearing an Afro wig and had painted themselves black.Not just one white woman, or even a few, or a “trend,” but EVERY white woman."
What would you do?
What would you think?
Would you say that those women were trying to be "black"?
This concept relates back to the idea of black women are trying to be "white". Most black women want to wear long straight hair, and surprisingly some believe that that would allow them to look "white". Meaning being socially accepted, and looked at as beautiful.
Yet, in some extreme cases some Blacks have even gone as far as bleaching their skin to get the lighter effect.
Many african Americans reflect themselves, and ask, "Who would want dark skin, with broad shoulders, thick lips, and be 6ft tall?". But the reality of the matter everyone is uniquely different for a purpose, a purpose to make the world more extraordinary.
"The irony with this problem is that while dark-skinned Black women are lighting their skin and wearing weave, White women are getting butt implants and crinkling their hair to look like us."
- Bill Duke
Many African Americans are subjected to feel that they are better than everyone. They become over critical, and imposed to feel superior. By putting everyone down they manage to maintain their feelings of authority. As a race, Blacks seem to tear each other down by the harsh comments we make; rather than building each other up. Being born with a desire to be superior and more powerful, has held our generations back from growing together.
How many people know of someone, African American specifically, who wants to be better than anyone and like to put others down in order to feel better?
This goes to show that striving for superiority repeats, for many generations to come.
Black women bleaching their skin, is due to the cause of wanting fit the societal standard of beauty. "light skin is the right skin." Is a common term that we hear; but we dont realize that this message means more than it says.
The Cold Hard Truth About Black Culture
“The Man” can’t possibly be the root of all that
curses, kills, exploits, and outright
mockery of the black race. At some point we need to accept the cold hard truth about black culture.
Many Blacks don't practice what they preach, and they send all the wrong messages and signals to people innocent of society.
"You got rappers on Twitter mad over the verdict yet these same rappers glorify
black on black violence
; how many young black men
trying to imitate one of their favorite rapper’s songs?"
