I never could really wrap my head around the idea of “good hair.” The shit is dead tissue growing out of your fucking head. I remember a friend complaining about how white women and children insisted on touching his “nappy” head because it felt “so nice” and they insisted that they were in love with his hair. I thought he was just bitching for the sake of bitching. I remember being in a predominately black school system and this would always happen to me. There was always someone telling me they loved my hair and was touching it! At the time I didn’t give a shit because I was hitting puberty and a bunch of cute black girls running their fingers through my hair was nothing more than much seeked female attention. Fast forward to my twenties and I’m sitting at a BBQ and dealing with a swarm of African and West Indian children touching my hair and guess what…THAT SHIT WAS FUCKING ANNOYING!!! All I could think was, “If I didn’t grow up with your parents I would have no qualms with beating your little ass.”
Moral of the story: STOP TOUCHING STRANGER’S HEADS IF YOU DON’T HAVE FUCKING PERMISSION! It’s rude, inconsiderate and having anyone invade your personal space can be highly annoying and can escalate into a most violent and provocative situation.
