lol, we don’t just happen to ‘feel’ that way.  Its been installed in us that our natural hair isn’t beautiful.  And the media says the same thing since white is the standard of beauty.  Its not a feeling we just happen to have.  People still get drama if their hair isn’t permed in a lot of places for work.  Back in the day, this hair had to be under a wig to work.  This didn’t come about from us.
