White

women
wear

weaves

too.

Oh.  I forgot, they’re “extensions” when white women wear them. They only become “ratchet” and worth making fun of when black girls wear them. Got it. 
Yes, SOME black women wear weaves. BECAUSE THEY WANT TO. FULL STOP. Not because they all hate themselves. Not because they all lack confidence. And not because they all hate their natural hair. And a large majority of them look good, which is why white people stay asking if my natural hair is fake cause ya’ll still can’t tell the difference! So yeah, I guess a lot of people are “fooled”. At the end of the day, whatever you do with your hair (black or white) is your business. Unless you’re my therapist, don’t say shit about my self confidence levels based on my hairstyle.
And before you come into my inbox, I’m not angry. I’m not bitter. And no I’m not jealous. Contrary to popular belief, getting famous off anti-black misogyny/misogynoir is not difficult or worthy of jealousy.  I’m tired. Tired of black women being the butt of every. single. joke. And someone with Todrick’s level of talent really doesn’t NEED to keep repeating this same trope. Heck, he’s made plenty of incredible and insanely viral videos without them! I’m tired of telling black “comedians” that my humanity deserves respect and that they need to stop giving their white fans permission to degrade me with these tired ass “jokes”.
