My recent comment to CBS Morning Show

Hello Readers,

I WANTED TO SHARE A MOMENT OF WORTH. It's a comment I sent to CBS Sunday Morning Show. The segment is called "The Long and the Short of It". Here is the link to the video;lst;2. I place this here in case you want to see it before you read my comment to the station.

Sometimes it just has to be said.

"Yesterday, I had my  routine of watching CBS Sunday Morning. A story caught my attention about hair cuts because I have a new cut that is getting a lot of attention. 

I waited for the segment to have some styles of black hair but there were none. The psychologist, historians, and stylists all focused on white/ European hair. 

To make it even more interesting, the only black women you aired was a women who was receiving help from a not-for-profit "dress for success" program wearing her hair straight, as if to remind us that if you want to be successful your hair needs to look white. 

The icing on the cake was the closing of the segment which asked what is the most popular hair and OF COURSE the answer was "long and blond". 


I think you owe your watchers an apology. In addition, it's February (African American History. How did you miss all that?"


  1. Silly CBS. What does "popular" mean anyway?? You are right Bukeka, and good for you for saying something.
    I remember a line from an old episode of Will and Grace, when Grace meets her beau's old girlfriend, a blonde...."You're blonde. I'm a redhead. Well, we have one thing in common."
    Yeah, what?
    "Brown hair."
