ABSOLUTELY ASTONISHING (every black woman must read)!!!!!!!!!

Posted by   + Show Post

I so happened to be googling somethings on the internet the other day and happened to come across an article of another "ethnicity" that basically in so many words stated that they did not believe that black women shower everyday because we dont wash our hair everyday as other ethnicities are required to. As I continued reading in went into comments from other readers some of other ethinicities that seemed to be unaware that we dont wash our hair everyday that also commented that we are nasty and how can anyone possibly get in the shower and not wash their hair along with the rest of their body when it is a part of the body . Another commenter even went so far as to say that it is hard to walk behind a black person in the hotter months because of the strong smell of our hair from all of the chemicals that we use and dont wash out of it everyday. COMPLETELY ASTONISHING! I had no idea that other ethnic groups that we live with every single day are still ignorant to our culture. Have anyone ever experienced such ignorant assumptions from another race before? I have also heard that black christians dont go to the movies

Yea it's a nauseating wet dog smell. I hated going to work on rainy days b/c of that smell.

 I think there is a lack of knowledge about all ethinic groups....I think the hair thing is a big one because who really has hair like us? All the other ethnic groups are a lot more similar. Alot of people don't realize you can be black and get sunburned...we lived in Albuquerque and my ass sure enough got burned at a damn softball game for DD and I had on sun block (that city is to damn close to the sun)

Anyway that being said I will be the first to admit that I really don't know anything about Muslims, Asians, or a number of other ethnicities.

And yeah you would think that since the interact with us everyday they would know a little bit more about us but the fact is alot don't care, alot don't worry because it doesn't effect them and society is set up so that the majority is the norm and not much else really discussed.

 I am going to go with those white people might have hygeine issue because DH is white and he doesm't stink after the rain and as far as I can remember none of brothers or sisters do either ....don't get me wrong I have know some people that smelled bad afte the rain (of all colors) but I still think that has more to do with lifestyle (maybe what they use in their hair) then skin color....

 lol...well DH certainly doesn't eat organic.....and while we do have a dog he has nothing to do with him....I will say I do know quite a few white people that do stay all hugged up on their dog so that probably does contribute to it....

I've pretty much been around most ethnic groups & call me what you want, but I think everybody carries a distinct "smell" to them, especially when sweating. I noticed that blacks smell different than whites when we get hot. ..IMO. Ppl just turn their ignorance into something to spread around. I'm never surprised.
