That's my job, that's what being a good loving brother is all about.
Its only an insult if you take it as such, people sometimes joke calling you crazy, do you feel insulted by it? or do you just laugh it off and move on. Its impossible for your hair to be use as an insult, its the greatest hair on the planet, you can do whatever you want with it, excuse me but I am about to name drop for a second, the Most High God and Christ has the same texture of hair as you do, what is there to be insulted about? all you have to do , is just correct them with a smile. If they say your hair is nappy, simply reply, "I love it," then tell "by the way proper term is wooly" let them know "educated people say wooly" I guarantee they won't try it again, and you will look good do it.
The Bible says answer not a fool according to his folly, ignore them or, just acknowledge the fullness of your lips, tell he or she they look good on you and be proud about it, but my point is you were created perfect, nothing in your body should be use as an insult unless you allow it to be so. the Black woman's body has been made to a mockery in this society because of the Jealousy and envy of the Oppressor, they hated them because they didn't have them, and brainwashed Negroes have followed their slave masters stupidity and make stupid jokes about their own bodies. Full Lips or big lips ,Nappy or wooly are blessings from God, like I said its impossible for them to be used as an insult unless you take it as an insult.
If someone means to be insulting, sure, I can take it anyway I want, and I can do the same with compliments, also. But why take it any other way than what they mean, as if taking it positively is going to change that they are trying to equate something about me to that which is wrong, bad, negative, etc?
It doesn't mean I'm swayed and am going to break down crying or something, and it doesn't even mean I'll give them a reply back for it, but I recognize the insult in their words, and can now discern what they are all about.
It's no different than if someone tried to insult my gender by saying something like, "sure glad I wasn't born a woman, one of the worst creatures known to mankind!". I'm not ashamed to be a woman, but can see very clearly they are insulting me because of my gender.
So if I feel insulted, I think it's most appropriate for said situation.
