Nik,

Check out this “story” that was shown on FOX News about black women and their hair. According to the article, 4 out of 5 black women are overweight and guess what these folks claim is the reason…OUR HAIR! I am in no way trying to start a riot, but if there was ever a question about why black women are afraid to embrace their true bodies/hair/selves this is WHY! Would it be possible to post this so that we may have a discussion?

Holla,

Trish
