ALLURE TEACHES WHITE WOMEN HOW TO "GET" AN AFRO

If you opened Allure's August 2015 issue you may have noticed an article titled "You (Yes, You) Can Have An Afro...even if you have straight hair." Even if you didn't, the spread has since made its internet rounds, possibly at an accelerated pace in the wake of the Rachel Dolezal controversy. The step by step tutorial details how to get the style that is being "adopted by a new generation of tastemakers" on white actress and model, Marissa Neitling. The article makes no mention of the cultural symbolism or history of the Afro--rather, points to the hairstyle as a hip, trendy accessory to what's in right now.

Chris McMillan, the hairstylist who styled the model's hair, told Huffington Post that his take on the Afro (on a white woman) was inspired by none other than Barbara Streisand in A Star Is Born. He came to his own defense, stating "I learned how to do hair from the African American girls in beauty school...I do black hair."

Imitation is one thing, appropriation, obfuscation and abnegation of the origin is another. White people in general love to act like they were integral to whatever style, artistic endeavor , slang, etc. that they adopt...they just can't let others be great.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
