From the Love Isn't Enough Blog by Tami Winfrey Harris

emphasis and reformatting is my own

"This little thing most black women do–
  1. covering up their real hair texture pretty much from cradle to grave, 
  2. sometimes with hair from women of other races; 
  3. aggressively speaking negatively about coarse and kinky hair; 
  4. never learning how to properly and easily care for unstraightened hair;
  5. avoiding everyday activity that might cause straightened hair to revert to its natural state–
 is ugly self-hatred that we pass on to future generations"
