That said, check out of the following video.
Whoopi brings up good questions. While Sherri Shepard wears weave (Obviously. It looks so freakin' fake and horrendous. Sorry, but it does.), Whoopi questions why so many Black women have to wear straight and super long weave. Shoopi says, "Why isn't it an afro weave?" That's a damn good question.
And then Joy Behar (thanks Google) answers that question with "Well, because when your hair is straighter, you can do more with it."
And did you catch when Whoopi says "Black women with blonde hair freak me out."? Oh gosh....as much as I love Mary J. Blige, a little part of me dies when I see her and that blonde hair. I'm just sayin'... And I know some Nicki Minaj stan is going to hate me for it but THIS...
....makes my eyes melt and stomach explode. Yeah, I know she considers herself to be a character and attempts to shock the masses with her get-ups. I know it's supposed to be "fun" but this is just awful to me. I wonder if my 12-year old sister thinks this is how she should look. Oh, and did I mention that my 18-year old mentee told me that MOST of the girls in her high school dressed up as Nicki Minaj for Halloween? What the fuuuu...
A lot of jokes were made on that segment of The View but at the end of the day, I don't think anyone understood what Whoopi was trying to convey. The White girls tried to relate by saying, "OMG, my hair is thick too." And Sherri Shepard seemed mega clue-less to me.
What do you think? Why do you think Black women don't rock more "natural" weaves (lol @ that oxymoron)? And do you have an issue with blonde hair or not so much?
