All they can say is that they love your hair, but do they really? They rather straighten their hair and go euro rather than afro. All that fixation on your hair must be an expression of shock that a black woman is still thinking Afrocentric. They say u need to go interracial. O hell.

Heyyy, Andreas. I think Thunderheist should be one of your beauties of the moment.

Natural hair is not Afrocentric.

Natural hair is just that, natural that some of us simply want to wear.

As a matter of fact many non-black men LOVE natural more so than so-called black men.

So in essence, we are free when first we love our own natural beauty and also this is when others admire our beauty also.

NOTHING to do with Afrocentricity.

At the same time, many black men wear locs and get white women.

So-uh...afrocentric?

I totally agree with you Moorena.

I remember this black woman told me, that a black man with dread locs stopped her on the street, and tried talking to her about loving her blackness, but then he turned around and walked towards a white woman. It turns out she was his girlfriend.
The black woman then told me, why does it seem, like the black men in dreads, who loves to lecture black women about loving your blackness, are always the ones in interracial relationships.

I am for every one finding love no matter the race, but one thing I don't like, is a hypocrite.

cheers

Look at the hate mongers trying to downplay your afrocentric expression. Even referring to black men as "so-called black men". As if we're anything other than black. Black is beautiful, but they can't stand it.

I say so-called black MEN....because many of them are not men.

you can be mad and upset...but I'm free from SOCALLED BLACK MEN!!

So go away with your high blood pressure and bad cardiovascular system and fume elsewhere.

I love my natural hair and I LOVE that fact that I am desired by men around the world...a fact that was hidden and covered up by stupid hypocritical black men, while they go APE (beating their chests) for white women.

Free from black men? How can one half of you be free from the other half? Still trying to escape from your blackness, aren't you? Black is beautiful.

So the white bwoy running this blog is hiding and covering up the beauty of the white woman, and being a stupid and hypocritical white man, while he goes APE (beating his chest) for black women? LOL.

Finally being appreciated as beauties? By whom? So if you didn't discover this single blog, you wouldn't have known that black women were and continue to be appreciated as beauties? O yea? All those black women in romance novels, movies, in music videos, and sung about in music, and written about in poetry, are not seen and being appreciated as beauties? Black is beautiful. Love it.
