This one cornrows of canerows refer to the past of slavery and oppression. I learned that last year. ‘
entertainment“>While the actress always saw the braids as a way to break the language barrier on her travels through Africa, she has now discovered that it is “ experienced by many as intensely painful as these women were supposed to cover it up for years. ” “That’s why not done to wear this hairstyle for white people regardless of whether they want to express their appreciation and inspiration. I posted this old photo 10 days ago without thinking about this sensitivity. That is a blind spot. It was the only photo I could find on my phone with brown hair, but that’s no excuse for the blind spot, because I should have known the zeitgeist braids cannot bear. My sincere apologies to the people this has hurt. ”
entertainment“>In her own words, the actress was not much criticized for the photo, but the commentary did impress her. Even though there was only one comment under the photo that this is cultural appropriation. That was right. You cannot smell that it is an old photo, taken at a time when there was no open nerve for this phenomenon. ”
entertainment“>Two followers have requested the actress to remove the message from her page. However, she does not intend to remove the snapshot. “I think there should be more room for that sound. And I try to make that space by NOT removing this photo. If this photo disappears, no one will learn anything from it ”, she concludes.
