This woman has more patience than I
I identify with the author of this article (link below). I don’t know many more ways of telling people it’s not okay to touch my hair. I am not a creature to be pet. I don’t care if we are related. I don’t care if you fucked a black dude. I don’t care if you have little half-brown children that have hair exactly like mine.
It’s demeaning. Keep your hands to yourself.
Even if I let you touch my hair, just know that I don’t actually want you to. I just am tired of calling out racist micro-aggressions every 15 seconds.
