"If you're hair is relaxed, white people are relaxed. If you're hair is nappy, they're not happy" - Paul Mooney. Hahaha. But seriously, some have derided Chris Rock's upcoming documentary Good Hair as esoteric, silly or even divisive. But in a lot of ways it's a really potent issue, and I'm glad to see it play out in public. Especially with those beautiful black women in the White House. Shoutout to the homey Smilupe.
