I agree with many points that the brother brought out, but he lacks expiereince obviously in the feild of African history.
Does he not know that men wearing braids is a MALE African tradition as well as a female one?
Does he not know that braids (CORNROWS) are as much African as is the Nile river?
I really do not understand where such homophobia comes from. Usualy it comes from much older men who can not grow hair any longer lol.
All we need to do is look at the lunacey of Nigeria. They do not want men wearing braids in Nigeria, nor dreadlocks.
The reason why some black men hate braids, is because the white man hates braids. The white man does not want you to go back to your culture.
As far as the sagging jeans.....well one should not be wearing the white man's jeans anyway. There are plenty of clothing that we can wear that are authenticaly African.
