Either white girls will dislike your hair and ridicule it, or they will like it and try to imitate it. You already know how painful the first one was. I am genuinely sorry that those mean girls gave you such a hard time for a hairstyle, which was actually very cool. But the girls who are now wearing cornrows are not the same girls who ridiculed you for wearing them. To blame them is the same sort of racism that blames Trayvon Martin for black-on-black crime.
The women who like your hairstyle are your friends. The women who hated your hairstyle were your enemies.
They are not the same people just because they have the same skin color. The question should be why is it that when a black girl wears them, the description changes to ghetto, while when a white girl wears them, it is either trendy or high fashion.

My white brother wore an Afro, about two inches puffed out — because he could. Native Americans, Greeks, Romans and Celtic Irish art have depicted people in cornrows as long as 1, years ago. It goes beyond hair. White chicks cornrows, butt, clothes. I was the only person of noncolor to be seen. One day, some of my girlfriends wanted to put cornrows in my hair.
It took hours, and it did not look good on me, so came out when I got home. But, in that moment, it was an act of kindness because I fit into that neighborhood. I was part of the lifeguard team that represented that summer fun was open and they were safe. Please upgrade your browser. See next articles.White chicks cornrows
