i am actually glad that science hasn't done any studies on our hair. i am quite sure, it would only be to our disadvantage

satisfiedsistah

To the contrary...we need "black scientist" to study everything about us so we are not at the mercy of a racially driven outcome, but one that profits us.
Always think positive and encourage the young to be scientist.

Wonderful post! (new to your blog) I've always taught my young'uns that our hair is not "nappy" or "bad", but "resilient" and "courageous" and "unique"! Yes, I said courageous!

Love it.

"Call it an adaptation to environment. I don't believe in evolution." Huuummmm, are you a fan of Intelligent Design? So our hair adapted but did not go through a process of evolution? God performed a miracle! Ahhh, yes, we should all encourage our people to study the sciences.

Adaptation is intelligent design. Evolution, to me, at any rate is saying there is no God involved in anything that takes place on this planet, everything happens by "chance." Adaptation is not chance. It is a plastic or fluid movement of biology driven by the surroundings it occupies. Which in my opinion is God given. Imagine a world were things are stagnant and we can't adapt. Hummmm. God always performs miracles in my opinion and the fact that we exist is proof.

I understand where you are coming from really I do. Intelligent Design doesn't 'really' bother me theoretically and there is always room for God in theory. Got that part of the whole debate, but I personally am not clear on the whole usage of adaptation in one sentence and then I don't believe in evolution in the next. You can believe what ever you want, however you want but the fact is adaptation drives evolution, scientifically speaking. In laymen's terms small changes over a period of time lead to big changes :). Small changes = adaptation and big changes = evolution...simple. I think a better argument is who fuels the changes and I can accept the theory that God does without hesitation. I believe it a bastardization of many prolific scientist to say that evolution does not exist. Moreover, Intelligent Design can and does co-exist with the theory of evolution. I just thought it weird that there was all this scientific explanation about our hair and then this strange statement...This is just my two cents for the month....back to lurking :) Cheers!

I think All Black People can protect our hair by Allowing our hair to GROW NATURALLY! LOVE OURSELVES AND THE CROWN WE POCESS FROM BIRTH! IT IS SCIENTICICALLY PROVEN FROM A BIOCHEMICAL STANDPOINT THAT PERMS DAMAGE OUR HAIR AND BRAIN CELLS. I LOOK AT MY AFRO AS AN ANTENNA TUNED IN (ON OR OFF)TO THE UNIVERSE. Hair is very sensitive and I think we are to treat it as such.
