The movie “Good Hair” hit theaters this weekend to mixed reviews. I havent seen the movie yet, and I am still unsure whether or not I will. I mean, it doesn't even relate to me since loc wearers were not a part of it. However alot of women feel as though Chris Rock belittled and ridiculed black women in the movie. Particularly a guest on the Oprah show recently:
I work in corporate America and I don’t want to be the butt of everyone’s joke when I walk out of a salon and my hair is nice and I have people walking up to me saying “Your hair is nice. Is it a weave? Is that Indian hair? ….It’s all mine”
Chris asks her if her hair is real and can he touch it. She let’s him
See, you can touch black women’s hair. The point is “we sit in the salon a long time. We don’t want you to touch it”. The trailer had me really upset. We are trying to promote positive black women and I felt as though you belittled us. When other races see the movie, they are going to laugh but they are laughing at us. If you had included other races, it would have been funny to us but it’s not.
Stay Blessed & Happy Locing!
