Well one thing you definitely should not do is to claim something belonging to ‘black culture’ as a new trend or something foreign.
Over the weekend MTV UK learned the hard way when ‘they ‘ posted photo of Kim Kardashian rocking cornrows.
The post read..
”The A-list are loving boxer braids right now, so here’s an easy way to do them yourself”
As expected the term ‘boxer braids did not go down too well with many people of color.
