SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!

I’m dying my hair and I’m thinking about going blonde.

Wait! Are those BOOs I hear?!

OMG, are those protest signs I see? Did someone just call the Black Panther Party on me?! I can hear a loud chant,  “My sistah you are not white. Raise your self-esteem black woman. Just say no to blonde!”

OH NO! Someone in the crowd is saying that I made an appointment to bleach my skin. Someone else is saying that it’s all because I went to an all white school. Whaaaat, OMG?! Did you hear that?!? One man just shouted that I only date white girls and I think all black women are ugly!!!

SHUT UP! SHUT THE !@#% UP!

Nothing is wrong with my self esteem, and I love being black. I just want a new fresh look. For all those who think blonde hair is reserved for white women only, please scroll below. These children of African decent live in New Guinea, and I doubt they have ever used a box of Loreal.
Yup, it’s natural and now that I think about it, my hair turns a rusty red when I spend lots of time in the sun, too.

Plus, I can attest that blondes do have more fun. This won’t be my first time lightening my locs. Check back in a few weeks to approve or disapprove of my new look!
