This is not an afro:
These are afros:
Mimicking black hair by throwing on a wig is racist and cultural appropriation. Calling unwashed/matted/unmanageable/dirty hair “afros” is racist.
When you mimic how we look, or refer to your unbrushed hair as an “afro”,it proves just how racist eurocentric beauty standards view people of color and our bodies and have no respect for our natural beauty.
Our hair is beautiful, our hair is natural, and we work hard to take care of it.
