What’s funny about Jena Frumes cosigning that misogynoiristic comment was that it was over people saying she can’t wear box braids because, I guess, they assumed she was a white girl when she’s biracial. Her response to that was, “White girls can wear braids, and black girls can straighten their hair.” Now, I had no idea her mom was the white one. I thought she was black because there was a picture of her a long time ago, and she very well looked like a very light-skinned black woman with curly hair to me. So I mean, obviously straight hair isn’t ethnically reserved to white women if your mom doesn’t even have it. I assume Jena gets her hair texture from her mom in fact. She said something last year about “Fuck racism, have mixed babies!” and she was so in her feelings over people calling that out, she blocked everyone including fans. It’s usually these same gang of IG models who don’t seem to get their light-skinned, racially ambiguous, and European-adjacent beauty privilege. I’ve talked to a couple of them about these issues before, and they seemed to have understood, but I guess not.
