The outcry to get Blue Ivy’s hair combed has gotten deafening. We’re talking eardrum-explosion levels.
And it reveals the depths of self hatred perpetrated in this country.
So disgusted are the masses that a petition has actually on change.org to force Beyonce and Jay-Z to comb the girl’s hair.
“As a woman who understands the importance of hair care. It’s disturbing to watch a child suffering from the lack of hair moisture. The parents of Blue Ivy. Sean Carter AKA Jay-Z and Beyonce has failed at numerous attempts of doing Blue Ivy Hair. This matter has escalated to the child developing matted dreads and lint balls. Please let’s get the word out to properly care for Blue Ivy hair,” reads the petition.
The woman who actually took time out of her day to create this ludicrous petition needs to have two seats.
Black people cannot stand for a single strand of black hair to be out of place. As if that is the most important thing about our culture.
Remember Gabby Douglas, the history-making, barrier-busting gymnast who became the first American and black person to win the all-around gold medal in gymnastics? She makes history and gets buried under stinging criticism about her hair.
While the rest of the world celebrated her previously unfathomable feats, black Americans verbally stoned the beautiful teenager half to death because a few strands of hair were out of place.
And now the cowardly word assassins have trained their sights on a 2-year-old baby, as if they have a vested interest in whether Blue Ivy’s hair is unkempt or not.
Get a life already.
