"This obsession with "black" hair reminds me of what Malcolm X said in his autobiography. He says, "This was my first really big step toward self-degradation:...I had joined that multitude of Negro men and women in America who are brainwashed into believing that the black people are "inferior"—and white people "superior"—that they will even violate and mutilate their God-created bodies to try to look "pretty" by white standards."
"I see why Carter G Woodson had to write a book called the Miseducated Negro. Xanophile you are perpetuating a fraud.I believe you are of another RACE. or you are operating, out of self hatred for yourself and your race.Any one with common sence would know, it's product to support black business."
"Why not just go natural? That will knock them ALL out of business? We don't need those relaxers, those chemicals, and weaves in our hair. Keep what God gave us."
"I absolutely agree. Wear your hair in the state it was intended to be worn. We don't need to chemically alter ourselves to be beautiful. Learn to manage your hair and embrace your true self. Also I support black business because I want to see us advance as people. I use natural hair products because I care about the health of my hair, at the same time buying products made by black people for black people."
"I hate this...but the truth hurts. Until we love what we are blessed with, our unique, kinky, coily, WONDERFUL hair...we will continue to get JACKED for our money and we will continue to kill ourselves for the sake of "beauty"."
"It's interesting that we blame the Koreans for simply meeting a need. If we didn't buy Yaki, they wouldn't be able to sell it to us. If we, as Black women, would learn some way to accept our beauty as it magnificently is, we wouldn't patronize any Korean beauty supply store; we wouldn't need it. I understand our pain though. It's much deeper than making Koreans rich."
"When lil' AA girls and boys follow their momma's and poppa's into the Korean-dominated "Swap Meets" to get whatever, that's when the problem begins. Stop giving these rude people your money by refusing to shop at the swap meets. This goes for the stereotypical ghetto-fied individuals and the so-called "educated" AAs who spend money in such ignorance. Koreans don't send ads to Blacks asking for their business. Wake up Black People and realize that it is not OK to spend and shop just anywhere!"
"It absolutely boggles my mind that any black person would ask what difference does it make where we buy our products. Economics, my dear Watson. Every other race on this planet supports its own except African Americans. This is due to our lack of unity. For someone to ask such a question proves my point."
