If you surf the internet regularly, I am sure you have seen the highly popular, “S*** People Say” videos on YouTube. The video that stemmed this craze was “S*** Girls Say” created by Kyle Humphrey and Graydon Sheppard . Their video comedically shows cute and annoying things girls say. Recently, comedian and actress Franchesca Ramsey appeared on Anderson Cooper’s show to discuss a similiar video she made, “S*** White Girls Say To Black Girls”. Many people have said her video was a great way to start a much needed conversation about racial sensitiviy. I personally was inspired to make a video after viewing her’s as well as fellow YouTuber, Charjay’s video, “S*** People Say To Naturals”.
This video was made all in fun for natural women but my hope is if you are guilty of making any of these negative comments to a natural woman; know that it is rude and hurtful and you should not continue to do so. I chose statements that have been made to me, I have overheard, or experiences that have been shared with me. You may be surprised but some of the comments were actually made by men. My intension IS NOT to single out women who are not natural or to create a divide between relaxed and natural women. The purpose is simply for natural women to laugh at the negativity they receive. Love your hair inspite of what others may say or think and if you can, educate them on the beauty of natural hair.
