Just wondering everyone's opinions.. my mother says white women should not have babies with black men unless they know how to fix ethnic hair. She sees kids all the time with really unruly hair (not on purpose, like a taken-care-of-afro) and really feels sorry for them. She says their white moms should learn how to do their hair BEFORE they are born, or they shouldn't breed.

What do you think?

EDIT: Okay maybe she should have said THEY SHOULD LEARN HOW TO DO HAIR. Maybe that's what she meant. I'm not sure. She's a BIT extreme in ALL of her views.

I also find this viewpoint hilarious coming from her. Why? Because she's white, I'm white, and I had the most ratty ass tangly hair as a kid unless A)my dad fixed it or B)I fixed it myself. She didn't even put my hair in a ponytail.


Ask me how I can help turn your daughter into a PRINCESS!

I now white women who can't fix their white daughters hair either....being able to do hair is not a requirement of motherhood.

 Some mothers are just idle...They cant be bothered to take the time to do the child's hair...some are natural and just leave it alone...This goes for ALL races..lol..I seen some terrible looking white kids too!!!

 While I DO agree with your Mom to some degree, I also think that every Mom should learn how to at least comb a kid's hair, maybe utilize a ponytail holder now and then? My sister in law made me insane. My nieces always looked like they just rolled out of bed. I got to the point where I went to their house in the morning on MY way to school, to get their hair done, so they didn't look that way. And they were both little blonde white girls.

 I think that might be a bit harsh, but I do feel horrible when I see unkempt children of any race.

 

ETA:  But I do know many white moms who won't even attempt to do anything with their biracial daughters hair because they do not know how and are intimidated by it...and yes, they should learn!!!
