Natural Crown

Published by Rodrick Bates on

People shouldn’t frown at what naturally grows from a crown, nor should it be a dress code violation. We’re living in a nation where people wearing their hair without alterations could end up in altercations. Men and women of color shouldn’t have to cover up their culture just because it’s uncomfortable to others. If we all have the same father, let’s try harder to treat one another like sister and brother. We’re in the 21st century and blacks are still fighting to normalize their naturalness in the United States of America. This united hate is hysterical. We’re in the 21st century and states are passing laws to prevent blacks from being discriminated against when they wear their natural hair. It’s naturally unfair for a race of people to be treated unequal because society is naturally scared and unaware. We shouldn’t need a Crown Act to prevent frowns at blacks who wear their natural hair to public affairs. The natural hair of blacks seems to be okay on stages, but when it’s brought into schools, businesses, and workplaces it seems to create an outrage like blacks have broken out of their cages. Maybe afros, braids, and dreads will become more acceptable as they continue to be manufactured onto the heads of other races.
