Though I’m not anti-weave/relaxer, I hope Meghan Markle, Prince Harry’s black gf, flexes her natural hair when they marry.

And since it isn’t the internet without division, others thought at little differently.
Why should she HAVE to wear curls just because she has them? How about letting a grown-ass woman wear her hair how she wants?

I think everyone making having kinky hair or straight hair about being black or white. Hair is hair. Let it be, she may have a preference I know for a fact curly hair is a lot of work to maintain.

Whatever your thoughts may be, a biracial woman who identifies with both her cultures and is proud of her black mother is a welcome addition to a white monarchy. “While my mixed heritage may have created a grey area surrounding my self-identification, keeping me with a foot on both sides of the fence, I have come to embrace that. To say who I am, to share where I’m from, to voice my pride in being a strong, confident mixed-race woman,” Meghan writes in Elle. And seeing black women represented in a community that has long been exclusively of one race is definitely a good-looking move in our books — curly or straight.
