    Why Michelle Obama's Hair Matters - Yahoo! News

    What a moronic paper. I can just imagine if some white woman posted a similar piece on the Cultural importance of some white First Lady's hair do, what the liberals would be howling about. Kooks worry about that crap just like kooks worry about her wearing shorts or a cardigan or short sleeves. Those only become news if she wears them to a FORMAL event. Although formal attire for women can and does include dresses with out sleeves.

    Nope got it completely, somehow one woman is the be all for an entire race in this country. Hair is just hair, there is no secret meaning or great social upheaval occurring because of what the First Lady does with her hair. And again if someone were posting this garbage about a WHITE First Lady the left would be all over it for the ignorance it portends.

    Lets be specific shall we? Obama's hair has no special meaning, no special importance at all except to kooks and idiots. It does not matter if she has straight hair or kinky hair. It does not matter if she gets a hair cut or not. The length of her hair is unimportant. Her hair is unimportant.

    What happens to all this idol worship when Obama is no longer in the White House and a WHITE person is?

    Yeah, you're right.

    RGS missed the article's point entirely.

    Don't bother trying to explain it to him.

    He's not capable of changing his mind, regardless of how you'll seek to dumb it down so that even an idiot could understand it.

    Man you really need to lighten up the fact this upset you is very disturbing. What you dont understand is women of color have to put in alot of work to achieve hair styles such as hers and more work to keep it up. They were just applauding her for not taking the easy way out.

    What if Michelle had skinny well kept looking dreads locs would ppl care about it? Would people look at her different. What if she didn't have a relaxer or used heat, and wore twist out's or a curly afro. Would she be looked at as someone who doesn't take care of their appearance. Seriously i'm just curious.
