Like, well, pretty much everyone, I was hoping Kim Kardashian had learned the error of her ways. In the past, she's addressed blackface accusations and her Aaliyah Halloween costume head on, always expressing interest in learning from her fans and growing. I had confidence that Kardashian would stop putting herself in compromising situations in 2018.
Unfortunately, her most recent hairstyle has left me — and the rest of the internet — wondering if she's really learned anything.
On her Snapchat, Kardashian called her hair look "Bo Derek" braids, when they're actually Fulani braids.
For those who may be a little too young to know what Kardashian is *trying* to reference, she's talking about Bo Derek's braids in the movie "10." What most people were concerned about is that the style is actually called "Fulani" braids, and are frequently worn by Black women (like majority of the styles that the Kardashian family wears), which in turn makes Kardashian's hairstyle VERY whitewashed. Not only is she appropriating a Black hairstyle, but she's crediting the look to a white woman instead of the Black community.
