Natural vs. Relaxed: Jill Scott
Jill Scott, the soul and r&b songstress and song-writer, recently chopped off her au natural hairdo for a sultry, spikey relaxed one. Let the people sound off! We have a war going on with us: Black people vs themselves, each other, our choice in dating, the way we wear our clothes and lastly, the state of our hair. Why is Jill's choice deemed an outrage to the natural community? It did not change the sound of her voice, her talent or intelligence. Maybe it wasn't working for her anymore...or maybe she needed a change. Whatever her reasoning is, it is her choice. Must we come down and judge our people everytime they make a decision that doesn't mesh with our belifs?
