Protective styling and mini twists are far from new topics in the natural hair community, so I decided to take it a step further. I live in the good ol’ Deep South. In Georgia. To be frank, a lot of people around here are very prejudiced. So I decided to put myself out there and push some buttons by wearing mini twists and asking questions about this particular hair style and appropriating black culture.
Be forewarned that some buttons got pushed and other buttons got obliterated. This a graphic read with insight as to how people think about race and why.
