Some days I think black people are just a lil too sensitive. Any time a corporation that pokes fun at us and our culture we yell stereotypical and racism. case in point this KGB commercial I had never seen till @MissesTiara posted it on twitter.
When i saw it I laughed. Because I could really see that happening in a hair salon. People got offended but I'm not sure why. Plenty of black women wear bad weaves, it's not like they were lying, hell my safeway sells them. Black women talk about other black women with bad weaves. When a company mentions where they come from it's stereotyping? If they made a Amy Winehouse weave joke nobody would have cared.
Here's the thing, the commercial didn't say all black women or only black women wear yak weaves. They just said where the weaves come from. If it was a bunch of white women getting weaves put in nobody would believe it. Lets face it, white women wear lace front wigs because they can't wear tracks like black women. so the commercial wouldn't have worked the same. Lace fronts are usually human hair... that's not quite as funny. Also if it's so offending how did the talk all those black women to act in it? those weren't people in black face, those were actresses who though the commercial was good and would get them on TV.
Anyway I laughed at it, if your offended call up Tyler Perry, Debra Lee and every other black movie/TV show producer and tell them to stop making jokes about black womens weaves in their movies/TV shows. Negative stereotypes are pushed by black people all the time, We laugh at them but when other cultures make the same stereotypes we get mad. All i'm saying is we need to not be so sensitive, as usual if we really want a change we have to change ourselves.
