What will they invent next?

Again? A-GAIN? *sigh* I’m so tired.
White folk, get your cousins that work for major publications and please, for the love of everything holy, tell them to stop this s#it. It’s. Ridiculous. Cornrows, then booty, now we’re BACK to cornrows. *sigh*

“‘Cornrows are moving away from urban, hip-hop to more chic and edgy,’ says Reyman.”

Oh…really? I didn’t know they had moved TO urban, hip-hop, since they’ve been a style we’ve worn since CREATION….oh wait. My bad. That’s your way of saying “moving away from BLACK culture into our appropriated hands, so now since it’s white, it’s alright. WE FIXED IT!!”
Y’all learn how to braid 21 centuries later and think you invented the s#it. We’re gonna stop letting you come to our sleepovers if you keep this bs up. Also–you have used up your “columbusing” free passes for the year. It’s not funny anymore, it’s lazy, irresponsible, and tinged with underhanded dismissal of our culture. This deserves more of a response than twitter dragging you with comical hashtags. From here on out, this s#it is just straight up racist, and I’m not calling it anything else. WE ARE TIRED.
