Omg! Is that all of your hair?

Brejanae Malone,

As a black woman we are known to express ourselves through our hairstyle. It’s a sense of togetherness and pride, especially when being asked is my hair mine. To be judged for my race alone is already enough but now my hair is questioned too. My answer to those who ask, Yes it’s mine and I wear it proudly in any form I want, so stop asking, ” Is that all your hair?”
