    This is the most offensive ish I have ever read, Women have the right to do whatever they want with their appearance. Black women wear bright colours because they suit a darker skintone, if you can get away with it why not? And I can cut and style my hair any way I damn well choose. If a man wants to date a certain type of girl who looks exactly how he wants her to, go find her, and leave the rest of us the hell alone.
