I wrapped my hair today while I left a deep conditioner on my curls. Elvis, Saeed, and I decided to go for a walk on this beautiful day.
I kid you not, I legitimately got stared at several times eye to eye, making it super uncomfortable and we were made to wait at a near empty restaurant. All because of my hair wrap, Elvis’s full beard and my son’s Persian name that I kept calling so that he’d sit still.
The universe and this predominantly caucasian town that I’m from gave us a great lesson and taste as to what others go through simply because of their ethnicity, culture, and/or religious beliefs.
The confusion on their faces said it all... Seeing my tattoos, hearing me speak Spanish, ... ignorance isn’t always bliss 😆 ❤️👳🏽♀️❤️
