Why do black women fear the 'fro?

I love to see African women with dreadlocks and other traditional African styles but it is not too common to see an African woman wearing her normal hair in Barbados. I am definitely making sure that my little girl is aware of her African culture ...it is not going to be easy in Barbados ...considering that we are proud to display a statue of a racist british admiral in heroes square of all places......it just shows the thinking.......

TheStar.com "As a black woman living in Canada, I often feel invisible when it comes to my natural hair. The television series da Kink In My Hair (which just wrapped up its first season on Global television) taps into a lot of the issues black women have with hair, but on the streets of Toronto, it's a whole other story."
