If you took cat shit, simmered it in cat urine for a month, dried it, and set it on fire, it wouldn’t stink as badly as this story. If only black women are permitted to wear head wraps, then are they not equitably denied the opportunity to wear anything from any other culture? Are tunics only wearable by Europeans? Obviously black women cannot justifiably wear bras — that’s certainly not an African tradition. Any jewelry sporting artificially shaped jewels would be off limits, too. Same thing with underwear. Tampons are off limits to black women. So are most hats. Silk is forbidden to black women. Most shoes are out of the question. So are many dress designs. Oh, let’s not forget umbrellas and parasols.

But the worst part of this is that black women would be denied the opportunity to wear warm clothing in cold environments.
