OPERATION BLACK HAIR

OPERATION BLACK HAIR Posted on July 28th, 2014 in Hair.

Operation Black Hair is absolutely hair-larious! As you all know, hair love is something that’s very close to my heart, and it’s come to the nation’s attention that the United States Army’s new hair regulations are unfairly targeting Black women and styles that compliment our natural hair texture. According to Army Regulation 670-1, cornrows and dreads are perceived as messy and get in the way of Black women doing their jobs. Seriously, weaves, wigs, and box braids are the approved options?? REALLY?!?! Do they really think that Black women have time to sit for those styles while they’re busy protecting our country?  Or even have access to get these styles done while on deployment?? Jessica Williams does a FANTASTIC job shining the light on this issue in a humorous way, and kudos to Jon Stewart and The Daily Show for bringing awareness to this ridiculous policy!

    I love this sketch and I love Jessica Williams for putting it so lightly. I think these regulations are ridiculous and discriminatory. The army is indirectly trying to perpetuate the white standards of beauty. I think women (white or black) and men for that matter should be allowed to wear their hair any way they want as long as it does not distract from the job they have signed up to perform.

  • Yes! White people need to educated about our hair. I’m so happy there are more naturals!
