Hi ladies, just curious to see if anyone else has been in this situation…

My husband and I recently moved to a state where Blacks make up less than one percent of the population. Because of this, my husband makes a conscious effort to greet pretty much every Black person he sees. Normally this is just a simple wave or head nod, but recently we went to the movies and he made such a fuss over seeing a Black ticket person it was almost embarrassing. Anyway, on to my question: As a curly, do you feel a need to connect and acknowledge other curlies you meet on a daily basis? If so, is your greeting warmly welcomed or turn out down right embarrassing? Or maybe you live somewhere where being curly is the norm…?
