No white woman has ever told me my hair feels like Cheetos, but I can relate to most of the Becky behavior spoofed in Franchesca Ramsey’s video “S**t White Girls Say … to Black Girls.” It’s a provocative piece that riffs on the “Can I touch your hair?”question many sisters field in their daily lives, among other issues. It may be uncomfortable viewing for some, but the video is brilliant in highlighting casual racism and unchecked privilege. And it’s hilarious.
Take a look and judge for yourself. Is it over-the-top or spot on?
