‘Rolling out’ had the pleasure of placing entrepreneur Sabrina Peterson on our cover this week. For the first look, the Glam University founder showed some skin in an all black dress, red lipstick, a blonde cinnamon swirl bun and gold accessories. Be sure to check out her awesome cover story.

    So you CUT OFF ALL YOUR NATURAL BLACK HAIR. Then put on a KOREAN HAIR HAT, looking like a HOOLIGAN, and you want my support as a BLACK PERSON.

    Nope. Sorry, my support goes to BLACK PEOPLE proud to look and be BLACK.

    I have YET to see a White person cut off their hair and put on a AFRO, unless it’s to MOCK BLACKS at a Black FACE party.

    Black WOMEN you need to stop this SILLINESS. Black MEN are demanding change.

    I totally agree with Nigg.Newton!! Black women sporting manes of fake hair has become a critical issue!! It’s time to focus on this critical level of self hatred that has gripped these MISGUIDED SOULS!! What MESSAGES are been sent to children, PARTICULARLY DAUGHTERS?There can be no progress as a people when you HATE THE VERY ESSENCE OF YOUR BEING! Not knowing who you are and your place among humanity and most importantly not been PROUD OF YOUR HERITAGE, makes for a very sad existence indeed!! The LOVE OF THE SELF is paramount to embracing life and LIVING OPTIMALLY. Its time to bring back the slogan SAY IT LOUD, I’M BLACK AND I’M PROUD!!

      I am a Black woman who wears her hair natural.. I love my natural hair and the styles.. (especially me twists)I never straighten my hair… BUT in the winter I wear my hair in two cornrows with a stocking cap on top and a wig… Actually I have many different styles of wigs.. I love the variety!!! I also love the fact I have the choice to do so, my choice.. It would be wrong for anyone to judge me or assume I am a self hating black women because of my choices..

      Also, I think how black women wear their hair is the least of the problems in our community… I think its the lack of “unity” in our community thats a huge problem… Comments like yours and the dude up top helps with the division.. It helps us stay divided it makes folks feel less than and defensive… Any way don’t be so hard on us or yourself when it comes to stuff like how natural vs weave… There’s bigger fish to fry in our commUNITY….

        1. ”I think its the lack of ‘unity’ in our community thats a huge problem”. = FACT.

        2. There is an unfortunate amount of HIDING that Black/African-American women do in regards to their beautiful texture of hair (relaxers; semi-permanents; Indian/Malaysian/Korean/Brazilian/Peruvian hair) and EVEN skin color (i.e. skin bleaching; cosmetics). = FACT

        Do you have ANY idea how damaging it is to subject a Black child to having “good hair” (for whatever idiotic reason we, including my own immediate family, do to each other)?

        I understand, Ms. LA that you appreciate and celebrate your natural beauty–

        … NOW think ABOUT the myriad of Black/African-American women that don’t.

        There is this moronic distinction amongst wavy hair and kinky hair and that also “helps us stay divided”. We must address this and get rid of this IMMEDIATELY.

        Women as a whole, regardless of background, hue, size, shape and creed convince ourselves of this Eurocentric ideal of beauty, including myself. And use quick fixes for our physical insecurities and what we feel are physical inadequacies. Spiritually and emotionally, we must fix ourselves. But no… utilization of a quick fix and suppression is what we do on a daily basis.

        Once we acknowledge and finally CEASE (or dramatically plummet) the content of honey and caramel hues VERSUS mocha and chocolate pigments; the appreciation of every wave, curl, kink and coil; we’d WOULD BE MUCH BETTER OFF. A big, HUGE step in the right direction.

          What you are saying is very true!!! There are some Black/African American who tend to hide behind weaves and such, and aren’t proud of their natural God given beauty…
          My point is/was that one should’nt assume self hate or judge a woman on how she wears her hair…
          You pointed out one of the many MINOR issues plaguing our communities.. Okay….. But a Major problem is how we approach the issues.. We judge, insult, and bash what we assume about others instead of talking about our differences.. I will say we NEED to UPLIFT ourselves and each other and have conversations with each other and learn how to agree to disagree..

          Again, I love my thick natural hips, brown complexion, and kinky hair (although it’s bitch to deal with sometimes, lol) and my prayer is that my neice and the little girls around me will notice the confidence I have and the beauty I see in what was given to me naturally… I pray that they too will aknowlegde and celebrate their own natural beauty…

          One more thing… I didn’t always see my own natural beauty, I didn’t have folks around me telling me I was beautiful… In my late twenties is when I started to appreciate myself for who I am, just me…
          Now, imagine how many other Black women are oblivious to their own natural beauty or just plain ol don’t feel good about who they are…
          My point is don’t be to quick to assume something about someone.. If you really care talk to them get to know their story or point of view…
