Finer Negrosity: Because when you clutch your pearls you could always clutch them harder.
In the fight for hair equality, a brave group of Facebook users have banded together to rally against the greatest scourge of our time -- fake hair. Namely, the "Lace Front" a style of fancy wigs that were once only found in the finest of Las Vegas revues and Broadway dressing rooms that have, thanks to the likes of Beyonce, become a hair fashion staple for women who tried wigs after the weave stole their edges.
Since all parts of black life are political, so is your hair. But this isn't necessarily about folks accusing you of getting that weave to look like your old blonde Mermaid Barbie from the 1990s.
This is about saving your yaki-covered soul.
This is in a effort to support all women who do hair! The government has you fooled if you think crime, drugs, gangs, or AIDS is the #1 cause for deaths in the black community... Its tacky ass lace fronts!!! Lets all take a stand to stop this plague that is causing so much grief on the streets of our black communities around the world!!!!
More than 3,000 folks have said they plan to join in the protest. And while it's debateable if that expensive wig you bought at the Korean-owned wig shop for Meemaw is causing your block to be on fire, murders and theft over hot hair is a serious problem in some parts of the country.
So, wig out appropriately. Make sure you aren't buying "Blood Yaki." Get your fake hair from a reputable source.
