Sugar Free Coaching
Welcome to Living Sugar Free. It's not a diet, it's a lifestyle.

Beyoncé presents surprise #SIMuhammadAli legacy award and she's still more of a trending topic on Twitter. 
🤣😅


Soooo disappointing when black activists end up getting the side eye. Right now I can't decide if he's helping or hurting the Natural Hair Movement. I mean to each his own, do you. But if you really want to affect change for black folk, why associate another afro w/ protest if you don't have to? 

We use the term #naturalhair and some people think that means afro. But it doesn't! Not for everyone and not even for all black people and certainly not for mixed race people. A lot of people have to work to get an afro and some of us just wake up like that. [Sidenote: this means white people born with straight hair can not be excluded from the movement.] 

While this man is attending formal events rocking his afro... There are still little girls who can't go to school and grown women who can't go to work with the natural hair they were born with. It's like Earth shattering that in 2017 there was an afro in the Ms Universe pageant and still it was hardly talked about in entertainment media. The expense of being forced to tame an afro is offensive and a systemic oppression of black women with reall natural afro hair (it is almost equally as frowned apon to just cut it off like a man, and you shouldn't ever feel like you have to) ... Why? 

Because the afro is associated with militancy and a shaved head doesn't satisfy the status quo. So black women, with socially unacceptable hair, struggle and suffer physical, mental, emotional, and financial pain dealing with hair and peoples opinion of it (even when you do work to change it) until they get old enough, mature enough, confident enough, and sadly even financially stable enough to not care. We have to if we want to thrive. 

 

But why play the #afrocard when you don't have to if you're really trying to help? Is the afro the protest when you can't #TakeAKnee? I don't know if that's helpful at all. If you're a wise woman you learn to style your hair according to the things you want to accomplish. It's lovely to just not care and do whatever you want. But most of us haven't had that luxury, and the whole point of the protest is to help those who have been oppressed, right? I mean whose attention are you trying to get? Just angry black folk or those who have the power to make things better for all?

Maybe if he went all natural (for him) his message would be more widely received. In my observation, a mixed race man with soft wavy hair can speak to some folk about things that a black man with an afro can not. Sometimes standing out from the crowd and identifying with authority is how you make change for the underdog. For most normal humans (non ASD) and those with the need to belong, it's easier to just hang out with the crowd and keep them stirred up. But is that really helping or just keeping you in a position of popularity with the masses? This lesson can be applied across societies, industries, relationships and all human interaction. 

#HypeMen and sensationalists like to point out that throughout history, it's protest that has brought about change. Wrong! That just gets attention and sometimes goes on for years with scores of lives and property lost. It's used wisely as a bargaining chip, just like going on strike. Ultimately somebody has to sit down at a table and have intelligent conversation to make and affect change. Real #changeagents try that first and then protested so they can say they tried, and so the message never gets lost until the demands are met. #JS What's the real goal here and are we going about it the most effective way? 

Hhhhmmm 🤔
