Don’t straighten your hair, baby girl.

McKinley Dixon,
Richmond, VA.

In the dominantly caucasian school that my sister used to attend, she would get picked on for her hair being curlier and fuller than the other girls in her school. It got to the point where she would straighten it every morning before we go to school. Damaging her hair, for an unnecessary reason, I told her not to straighten her hair anymore to appeal to those that only knock you down. I told her every morning. I still tell her.
