Y'all Just Need To Stop!

Stop the thinking that you are not beautiful,my jaw almost dropped yesterday after hearing a co-worker exclaim that her hair wasn't acceptable to her.
She went on telling a fellow worker that she need to put a perm in her hair to make herself feel better about herself.
Even though I wasn't directly in this conversation I was only 7 feet from it so I couldn't miss what was being said.
As a man I feel responsibility to tell these young people I work with the truth,I was in form yesterday and just lit a fire and brimstone sermon on those two young ladies.
Why is it that we hate what God has given us as a people,?There is nothing wrong with the texture of the hair God created for Black people!
Why is it that we got to put chemicals and fake hair on our heads to feel whole as a person.
Madison Ave. has done a job on Black people that I feel will take four hundred years  to erase,the self hate is so deep,that the devil stays away,because there's nothing left for him to do!
He just sits back in the form of other people laughing and raking in profits from all the things we purchase to make ourselves look like what Madison Ave says is beautiful!

Madison Avenue, yes. Our tainted History in America, no doubt. And even, we, ourselves have continued to perform very dangerous head games & spirit murders on what it means to be Black & Beautiful.

Lin:So eloquently put,I some times think the behavior and thoughts of some Black folk is akin to a death march!
