Being Me and being Nautral

Recently I've noticed that I have become more and more protective an defensive about being natural. I always find myself not wanting to post things online about being natural or how awful I think chemically straighting our hair is, for fear of offending people, when I really want to scream it from the rafters. My honest opinion is whether you think it or not holding on to your relaxed hair is subconsciously admitting that being who we are is not good enough for this world, this is the one thing that we as African American people have that no one else can have. Our hair texture is one of the few things that is uniquely us and what do we do? slap some crack on it and call ourselves presentable well ya know what FUCK your idea of presentable MY hair is NAPPPY KINKY and ALL me if that makes me less acceptable I'll take it. :)
