Ah, didn’t know that.
Probably there just hasn’t been much public discussion of the hairstyle and its origins and associations yet, hence why it wasn’t brought up in relation to Danneel.
Plus I’m sure there are ways/times/places for anyone to wear the style and it’s not a problem.
Seems to me that one of the bigger issues with CLAIRE sporting it is that it seemed that the show was associating the hairstyle with criminality (or at least being ‘edgy’ or ‘punk’ or ‘anti-authority’ like the post I reblogged talks about) - and as it’s a traditionally black hairstyle, that’s tantamount to associating being black with those things.
So, it’s not necessarily the hairstyle on white women on its own that’s an issue - it’s the way it’s worn, by whom and where.
