Um… has anyone looked at their hair? They all have white people hair. I mean, seriously. Except for the bald guy, they’ve all got straight, light-colored hair.
I hope I don’t sound racist, but - black people don’t have straight hair. Have the people objecting to this cartoon ever actually seen a black person?
and this from Sis/Pony:
This is "black person" hair
This is "black people" hair
This girl? She has "black person" hair, too.
This woman has "black person" hair. Whoa! Would you look at that? A black person with straight hair!
This guy is also a black person with straight hair. Maybe someone should tell him that he's not really allowed to have this hair and still be black.
This guy is dancing with his "black person" hair. Is that impossible too?
This black woman has some great natural highlights in her straight hair. Nice!
I practically keeled over laughing when the people in that thread started talking about what black people hair does and doesn't look like. It just goes to show how you can sleep with, marry, and reproduce with people of color but it doesn't mean you have any understanding of what it means to be one.
People of color have all sorts of hair types. Saying that this cartoon can't be depicting people of color because the men have straight hair is just an example of how far some white people will go to try avoid taking responsibility for their racist assumptions.
