Natural hair memes

As someone who uses  tumblr I have come across some interesting memes.

Memes are  ” an idea, belief or belief system, or pattern of behavior that spreads throughout a culture either vertically by cultural inheritance (as by parents to children) or horizontally by cultural acquisition (as by peers, information media, and entertainment media) ” (

The can be found on pinterest and tumblr. I went on  some sites and compiled this collection. I thought this would be an interesting post because it give us the opportunity to see how people view  it. It is also setting a foundation for my next post of Stuart Hall’s encoding and decoding.

My next post will be on natural hair and touching (and an application of Said’s theory). It will be followed by Hall’s theory of encoding and decoding as it pertains to natural hair.
