  1. Is there not a News topic or whatever happened to Random Thots? Anyways I thought this article/girls story was interesting and is it wrong for this white girl to be walking around with box braids? *Looks for cultural appropriation thread?

  4. I mean she does look stupid, but she is 12.
     
  5. I suppose she has to do something to draw attention away from the name 'Mallory'.

    I had to run this through the baby name book to find out what it means.

    You're not joking.

  6. But enough about Beyonce
     
  7. Oh, do one.

    I could understand it if the girl was wearing a niqab or a turban- something with deeper religious or spiritual values/connotations/ownership attached to it- but this is a hairstyle, a cultural choice.

    Tumblr Social Justice Warriors need to stop focusing their attention on the stylistic choices of a 12 year old and more on the racial schisms evident in the modern workplace and in the criminal/judiciary arenas.
     
  8. Wow, some people have no lives! To be complaining about a 12 year old's hair...they really should leave their basement once in a while.
     
  9. Ridiculous.

    She is twelve.
     
  10. Stop this madness.
    She looks super cute too.

  11. It's so insane how mature 12-year olds look nowadays.
     
  12. I was just thinking that. Her eyebrows are giving Sam's a run for their money.
     
  13. It's feeling like psychological torture that this 12-year-old has a better phone than me.
     
  14. All kids look older now, They dress more like adults too, which is good. When I was young you dressed like a child till you were 15. Now it's timberlands and tight jeans etc from 7.
     
  15. She's 12.
     
  16. Exactly. It demeans the conversation and diminishes awareness if time is being wasted on something so petty.

    Haha when I was a kid all the children in picture books wore spotty dresses and dungarees and shiny shoes. These days even the Famous Five look like they'd cut you if they didn't like your face.
     
  18. The hair looks great keep exploring....I think it looks good. First of all we shouldn't have only black or white hair styles . Black straighten, curl and etc the same styles that most white people do so what's the difference in it.
    It's just hair. If someone feels otherwise, they need to get over it. When "hairstyles' like natural braid hairstyles are thought to belong to a "culture" when they belong to an individual. it's called personal choice. Otherwise, by that thought process: black people shouldn't do hair extensions because that's "white culture hair"...

  20. Why resurrect an 11-month old topic for something you know will cause arguments
