The Message in the Natural Hair Movement

"It's just hair." This is what people say who try to convince themselves that their hair doesn't somehow speak for them.

When I was in the 9th grade I wrote a cartoon strip where the heroine’s name was Daphne. A white male classmate of mine who enjoyed reading my stories immediately complained that I’d give the girl a weird “black” name. I, politely, explained to him that the name was pronounced “Daff-nee” and that Daphne was a name from Greek mythology. Or, if that was too deep for him, a white female character from the cartoon “Scooby Doo.” No matter, to my “it’s all black names” to me friend. It was a weird name with a weird spelling, so it was a weird “black name.”
