#SupportThePuff - Natural Hair Petition

2,479 Signatures Goal: 1,000

The Bahamas; an island nation made up of 700 islands and cays with a diverse people and a rich history. In all of its beauty, it still carries the burdens of slavery and slave mentalities.

Black women through the course of history have been told that their hair is unworthy and were made to chemically straighten, hot comb or cover their kinky crowns. In order to be seen as beautiful, many women of African descent were told unapologetically that their hair was not beautiful in any other form.

In the year 2013, Natural hair has come back with a great resurgence, proving the nay-sayers wrong that it was indeed beautiful. Many young (and older) women can be seen sashaying the streets of New Providence and throughout The Commonwealth with their puffs, dread locks , curls and kinks, holding their head proudly to the rising sun. Fast forward to 2016 and students of a historic high school are being told that their natural hair is "unacceptable", "untidy", "unfit", "ugly".

This petition has been created in support of those students and we encourage you the potential voter to consider the damaging effects of telling our precious darlings that in the year 2016, their hair is not good enough to be worn naturally. Sign the petition today and remember to #SupportThePuff.

    We the American people DEMAND to know the TRUTH, so before you VOTE, watch this very highly informative video the liberal biased mainstream media underreports and will never show it to the American people: Hillary Clinton: A Career Criminal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kypl1MYuKDY

    I may wear hair extensions but it's #mychoice. I #supportthepuff as its a woman's choice to decide how she wants to wear her hair for whatever reason. Natural is beautiful. They will find any way to tear us down ✊

    My boyfriend also faces this very same issue. It's ridiculous! Afros are the most beautiful hair you could possibly have. They should be embraced!
