We wish to be certain that we rejoice all victories! Being black in America is HARD… however being a BLACK WOMAN normally is HARDER. They wish to take our fashion, our voices, our physique sorts and now they wish to hate on our hair. One factor I’ll say to all of the BLACK WOMEN! You might be lovely and there’s nothing or nobody who can change that!
BUT THIS ONE IS FOR US!
“Daily on this nation, Black girls and ladies face discrimination due to their pure hair at their workplaces and colleges,” stated Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Joyce Betty in an announcement. “So right now, I proudly voted sure on the #CROWNAct to lastly finish race-based hair discrimination as soon as and for all.”
She continued, “It’s easy — discrimination in opposition to Black hair is discrimination based mostly on race. I stay up for swift passage of this essential laws within the Senate and to standing with President Biden as he indicators it into legislation. To each younger Black woman and boy, I say to you, your hair — out of your kinks to your curls, out of your fros to your fades, out of your locs to your braids — is a crown. Be happy with your hair and know the Congressional Black Caucus is combating for you.”
