just found my new hair trend

hey! there's this (new) trend where people with straight/slightly curly hair curl their hair with straws to make it look like an afro... one of my friends did this and i found it stupid because everyone said that her hair looked pretty while i get shit for it all the time? she said she knows plenty of white people with hair like this so that'd mean it's okay and i didnt really know what to reply.. is this cultural appropriation or just another hairstyle? thanks for you time :)

White girls manipulating their hair into a highly politicized and very policed hairstyle ain’t just another hairstyle.

A trend for them is a controversy for us
