Well, the feedback I've received since that post has consisted of:
1. Disappointment that Flo is no mo'. (It's a public no-go fo' Flo. But will I don her at home? Fo' sho'.)
2. Indignance that White folks like Michelle at Before and Afro get attacked for wearing a 'fro, but Black folks can wear straight blond wigs with no backlash. It's a double standard. (Yeah, I said it.)
Howev, my reasons for not wearing Flo out the do' (that stands for "door", all you Whiteys) has more to do with my desire to accurately represent myself. I'm not political. I'm crazy. I want to have fun, and be audacious, and rap crappily in the 'burbs. A costume is part of the fun. When it becomes about politics, it becomes unfun.
Besides, my alter ago, Ms. Crazy Papers, has had the same 'do for years. Every girl needs a change now and then, right?
I really like color, so how about some colorful do-rags?
Does this do-rag make me look phat?
Or perhaps something like this. (I'd merely be emulating my favorite songstress!)
Or, even though clowns creep me out, how about a purple clown wig? (Clowns are pretty much as White as you can get, so I would only be appropriating clown culture.)
Which Caucasian-appropriate look do you like best?
Suburban Gypsy? Frou Frou Diva? Or Purple Clownstress?
