Black Hair

Nov 4, 2017


Let’s get this straight. It’s not magical, it’s not uncommon and it definitely doesn’t warrant wondering hands. Black people hair is no more spectacular (or afro-tastic) than <insert colour> people hair. Throughout school however, this was not the case. Of course in college and university...
