  1. Go for it!!

    Some of us are old enough to remember the towering Afros worn by many individuals associated with the Black Liberation movements of the sixties and seventies. The fact that we’ve been dealing lately with controversies regarding the hairstyles of black Americans shows us just how much we’ve slid backwards in our nation’s evolution, largely because of newly emboldened white supremacist sentiments. These have been aided and abetted by elements in our country’s political class (most of whom, yes, belong to just one of our two major parties).
