    This was another great episode by John. I've noticed there's still not a ton of hair care products out there at Wal-Mart aisles for blacks like there is for whites. John is one of the few individuals who actually spends time studying and researching the topic he'll be talking about and it shows. He does a great job of being serious and making jokes through out his show. His writers did an excellent job with this episode writing the jokes.

    You don't have to learn how to style black hair to be a hairstylist and asian straight hair (who are different from what I have heard) but as a black person you have to learn how to style straight hair.

    I'm a curly hair Egyptian man, and I'm confused by you refusing to accept thar race is more related to skin colour than hair texture. Straight hair is mostly Asian. So when European embrace straight hair that doesn't mean that they embrace Asian culture! A lot of Europeans have curly hair, and still most Europeans prefer straight hair. In Africa a lot of people prefer straight hair, though curly is the norm, and surprisingly enough, it doesn't have a thing to do with white man media!

    So, the teacher says, "Change this about your child, so the other children don't tease her." How about the teacher TEACH THE OTHER CHILDREN NOT TO TEASE?! "OK, victim. Give up your lunch money and starve every day, so the bullies don't bully you." NOOOOO! Teach the bullies not to bully! Give back the lunch money. That scene in Glee, where the teacher said, "I personally witnessed two large, strong, athletic students assaulting this much smaller, much weaker trans child. Obviously, I, as a member of faculty, could not POSSIBLY chastise the bullies for bullying, let alone actually report them for committing the CRIME of ASSAULT AND BATTERY. No! I have to bring the victim to the principal's office, call in the parents, and order the child to CHANGE HERSELF, and present as male, so that the CRIMINALS won't be tempted to commit more crime." Oh, and while we're at it, instead of teaching our teenaged boys and "grown up" men to control themselves, let's make sure the girls are completely covered, from head to toe (except if they're choosing to wear a burka! Can't have THAT!), because if those poor, put-upon men and boys see a CLAVICLE, they'll lose all control, and be FORCED to rape the "harlot," or at least, "be distracted" from doing their own work, because we just CAN'T teach them to treat women with respect, or even just to focus on their own business and not on others'. We just CAN'T do THAT! UGH. I hate it so much. SO MUCH! It's not that big of a hop, skip or a jump from bullying a small child about how her hair smells to burning "witches" because you THINK they worship differently than you do, in private, where no one can see them, and no one can witness them, and no one can actually PROVE anything, but dang it! "We bullies need to stick together and destroy anyone not like US!" Sorry. I didn't mean to get so upset. I just... AAAAAARGH!

    I never thought discrimination against black people would be at a point where even their hair is a subject of discrimination. They can't even keep their fucking hair, even after they've already lost everything else. No, apparently, that hair is disgusting, even though we'd probably accept that same hairstyle you have if it was a white person, because racism runs that deep now.

    The point about hair discrimination having to go is an important one, but there are a lot of remarks within this video that I just find annoyingly condescending and pedantic. First off, I do not give a fuck about hair, nor should I have to. So don't imply that it's my moral duty to somehow learn about the particulars of black hair. I care about hair discrimination, but hair styles themselves? Hell no. I know that my nieces with black hair have to go sit in a chair all day and suffer through some painful brushing with some kind of butter. That's it. We talk about it, but I don't need to know the particulars nor am I interested in knowing what specific types of hairstyles exist. I don't even care about my own. It's simple, don't discriminate someone based upon their hairstyle and be aware that some people naturally have different hair that just doesn't go the way yours does. That's it. You don't need a PhD in hair styling to know that, just the common sense of a 5 year old. Secondly, some of those hairstyles you insinuated to be a mockery of black culture when worn by white people are actually universal. That goes for weaves and dreadlocks specifically. I'm sure that the specifics on how they are achieved are different, but they are essentially the same thing and the fact of the matter is that mostly black hair stylists will still know how to do them seeing as they have become increasingly uncommon in other cultures. I may know jack shit about hair, but I know a thing or two about history seeing as I'm a historian. Cornrows, weaves and dreadlocks are universal and are thousands of years old. You aren't fighting racism when you are gatekeeping people from wearing hair they like, specifically when that type of hair has a mostly universal history. Again, fighting discrimination is important, but holy shit were some parts pedantic and straight up patronizing. I mostly enjoy these episodes, but this one annoyed me.

I’m a white woman, lost all my hair due to alopecia and GOOGLED solutions.

    I dont understand this afro american agression towards white people in the US. In europe people of color are less rude. Why "goddamn white people" at the end? When I worked for EY, black colleagues came and touched my hair the whole time, when I made a ceratine stratening on my long hair, and it was ok actually, they were interested, because as they said, they werent used to such straight and silky asian natural hair, so they touched it, often without asking. I didnt mind because they were polite and some of these collegues were friends of mine. Some asked me what several porocedures meant, I woudnt dare to tell them they should fuck off and goole it, especially because why feeling anoyed immediately by a simple question? I reqlly dont get it; why people of different races have to fight and feel superior and telling peoplke they should google it. In Europe people of color are way more educated, and waaay less descriminated (they get exactly the same loans in banks, the same free education (in most eu countries education is free or almost free) and they get the same conditions to buy property or in getting any help from the government, just as white people do here). So they are polite and dont just say fuck off to somebody who simnply asked a question! Black-lives-matter is mainly an american problem, not a world problem, because especially in central Europe people have more education and are not as agressive and rude as americans, white, black, asian, hispanic or any other race in the US!

    This touches home. I remember the first time this was The super reinforced I was 11 starting 6th grade at a Private Christian School and our hair was literally not apart of the dress code. It stated no locks, no braids, no urban hairstyles, and no distracting hairstyles, right along with navy socks and plaid skirts. This continued well into adulthood where none of these hairstyles were deemed professional.

    I'm an idiot, white guy so there's that, but I've seen several beautiful black women with natural hair styles, that is, I presumed they were natural hair styles. Isn't this more of a "keeping up with the Joneses" problem than an actual problem. All I'm saying is anyone attaching their self-worth to their looks is in for trouble. The black people I've known and respected were so much more than that. It's time we all tell Hollywood to go fuck themselves.

    You did it John! This is why you get the Emmy’s! I laughed so hard when you dragged the horrible wig at that fashion show. I live in Connecticut. My family has been here for 12 generations and freed for 7. I am Egyptian Southwest, Ethiopian Jewish,and Geechee Cherokee. My hair is my crown. I got tired of people telling me even when I wore my real hair straighten to elementary school. That it wasn’t beautiful enough despite it being down my back. So I started my own business. The only black owned and woman owned Fine Art Gallery in Connecticut at 30. Not just because of my passion for the arts but Mostly because with my doctorate and personal accomplishments it wasn’t enough working in a lot of white male dominated spaces. A girl in my school actually tried to cut my real hair. It was exhausting because it always came down to my hair. So I agree “screw off or Google it”! Love and light! 💕

    I still get something like this from my aunt. She thinks I'd have a better chance of getting a job if I got a permanent and straightened my hair. She grimly reminds me that most hirers are white and they're expecting a certain image. It's a bother to me since straightening usually involves an expensive trip to the hair salon (which I can't afford) and subsequent visits to maintain the look. I wash, condition and dry my own hair as a means of controlling the expense and not wasting time in a salon chair when I could be indulging myself in other ways. My aunt means well and she may be right. But this is advice I simply don't want to follow.

For me, "color blind" to skin color is this - I'm at work trying to promote a "guess who this co-worker is by this baby pic". Talking to one co-worker and she says it would be a waste for her to participate because everyone would guess her pic.....oh yeah, she's the only Black woman on staff. oops I'd like to apologize to anyone I've offended because of my blindness. I try my best to judge people by WHO they are not what they look like. Sometimes I fail but I promise to continue to try. My daughter's friend adopted a little girl with textured hair and after giving her a bath and seizing up her hair with a whole bottle of no-more-tears conditioner, googled "how to handle" African-American hair, found a EEfast video by a black woman teaching white people how it's done.

    Please stop with this appropriating hairstyle nonsense. The first documented cases of braided hair are in Europe. Besides on the list of issues here that's like number 2000, maybe address the amount of inexperience most hairdressers have with black hair, that seems like an issue that can be fixed without going into the insane reason of "cultural appropriation"...

    The hair touching thing triggers me lol. Idk how many times people just randomly grab my hair without asking or even saying a word, one time this lady kept yanking it. I'm a germaphobe from childhood and I don't like to be touched. Can't imagine living somewhere it's more common, dreads are everywhere here all races but my gf is from the south and it happens a lot, even to me ironically a black family wanted to feel my hair lol they were so sweet and I didn't mind xD we were all on vacation and swimming and apparently they never seen a white person with natural hair so it was funny but ya every other case it's white people grabbing and commenting on it including my mixed daughter lol

    As someone with a hairdresser mother i knew that the hairdresser industry is geared toward dealing with straight hair. From tools to products and styling campaigns trust me just Google curly hair styles. Natural curls where art though? I have been told my hair is messy and should be more presentable but never once have i told i should be fired this is insane what the African American community has to go through.

    I am African. I came to Winnipeg in 2005 as an adult. Its interesting the look on hair stylists faces when I walk into a salon and asked for service. There is a HUGE population of black people in Winnipeg BUT the Government institution that train and regulate hair stylists DOESN'T teach how to style black hair.

    first off, black people is not the agreed term to describe all people of color, secondly, I like kissing my dog and apple picking so stop saying those are non people of color things which is bs. stop perpetuating positive stereotypes towards non people of color because that actually IS racist , we are sick of it...

    I know it's wrong to discriminate based on colour but you have never made a video in opposition to the black people it's not like they are so good. The looting in the name of BLM and recent events in South Africa. But you won't make them because it breaks your whole narrative. I considered John Oliver to be a good source of information but it is seems you are biased.
