This.
Having curly hair does not make it an "afro".

Maybe just ignore me? Save me having to explain things to the nth degree.
You said blond was cultural appropriation, that's all I responded to, so I have no idea what this trying to change what you said is all about.

You then threw in the little "maybe it only goes one way" and we all know what that means.

Blonde is not a culture, it's a colour.
No, it's not Mort.

His hair is identical to a black afro.

I know blonde is not a culture and I've never said it was - anywhere. You're having the same problem comprehending this as Jesus.

I have no problem with people wearing whatever they want and wearing their hear however they want. But I fail to see how anyone could say, white women can only wear their hair like white women. But black women can wear it whatever way they like. And really, it's mostly white people who have a problem with this.

It's ok to say that you have no answer without trying to make it personal, and you did say that blond was cultural appropriation, that's just a fact.

Grow up. You're on a Big Brother forum and you're turning it into a playground.

You're struggling with the concept of cultural appropriation. Having naturally very curly hair does not make it an 'afro', unless you happen to be 'afro'.

You raised blonde as a comparison, there can be no comparison because as you've acknowledged blonde is not a culture ergo no cultural appropriation is possible.

Not sure I agree it's mostly white people who have a problem with this, many now appreciate the issue and are attempting to understand the history behind it.

I know that, but their kids/grandkids are still white African people, and personally I don't get how having a hairstyle associated with black people makes you "want to be black?" It's almost like the Media can't accept people liking "black" cultural stuff.

The Afro was a very popular hairstyle in the 70s
The bigger the better.
