Sesame Street Sends Out A PSA For Little Black Girls To Love Their Kitchens!!!

- By Bossip Staff

A black woman’s hair can be short, long, spiked, tamed, kinked, curled, straight… but it seems as if most black women rock a chemical processed European swag because that’s what society claims is the right way to look. Sesame Street decided they are not feeding into the bullsh*zzz anymore… They want little black girls to love themselves, so they put together a little something and it goes like this:

    this was made me smile!black women should have more pride in their hair.

    • MeohMY

      lol, ITA I could not smiling. And it’s weird, you would think BET or some other “black” enterprise would do something like this, but we seem to perpetuate everything but.

      Even when you look at the tv shows featuring little black girls, or tweens–they all have weaves (unless they are biracial). Its tough to really help a little girl feel good about herself when almost all the people who look like her are wearing someone else’s hair, or texture.

    The only thing that missing from this is Will Smiths daughter Willow’s version ‘I wip my hair’!

    Real talk though, it kind of sounds like her singing this no!??

    • denne

    I wish they had this on sesame street when I was a little girl ;,-) Simple as it may seem, it had a profound political and social message!

  • Blacqberry

    Absolutely adorable. Great message for my baby sistas out there.

    And the singer does sound like Will and Jada daughter Willow.

  • nicky barnes

  • sanriobaby =^.^=

    I love that Seasame Street addressed this issue! It’s so important that little girls of all races feel good about themselves w/o the pressures of society. Beauty should inclusive, not exclusive.

  • myHusbandMonitorsMyInternetActivity

    Now if their mothers felt the same way.. we’d be cookin’ with gas.

    • Outlandish On All Counts

      Your SN got me CRACKIN UP….wow….

      😆 SN aside…you are absolutely correct. Saw lil pumpkin in Tarjay the other day, could not have been more than 8, momma already put a weave in her head. SMDH.

  • Curious1 aka I'm Just Sayin'

    CUTE….lol…awww…Sesame Street is cute

  • love

    so sad how white ppl had to tell us to love our hair

    • deelucious

      Nah not really. I tell White people to stop tanning all the time. I tell them how much it damages their pale skin nd I tell them how orange and gross the ‘instant tan’ from a bottle is. So if White people wanna tell me to love my hair then thats ok with me lol.

  • deelucious

    Awww I love this! So sweet and real. Makes me wanna go back natural.

  • Allie

    Awww that was too cute, so proud of you sesame street

  • ya dont say!

    get out, I agree with you 100%. and I remember the experiment of the dolls when the black children thought that the white dolls were prettier than the black dolls and would pick the white dolls over the black ones. smh!

    • ya dont say!

      additionally, the black children picked the white dolls because they didnt have positive images of black people, of themselves.

    • daisy jay

      you have a point. i think they should do the same exact experiment soon again (if they haven’t already) just to see if the kids think differently now. it would be an interesting sight.
      i’m gonna bet that half will say white and half will say black

  • n icol e

    im Crying rite now…. im so Happy 4 this for our lil grls!!!

  • Akeem The DREAM

    I love it. It reminds me of a book i gave to my daughters when they were little, called nappy hair. It was a very good book,I knew that it was important to teach my little girls at a very young age that they are perfect just the way they are, and to love themselves despite what they might hear or see on the streets or on t.v. My oldest is 20 now and she has the most beautiful head of hair and she wears it so many different ways and constantly get complimented on it. SISTERS YOU ARE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BEINGS GOD HAS CREATED, MY ALLEGIANCE IS TO YOU. YOU GAVE BIRTH TO A NATION THAT SPAWNED MANY OTHER NATIONS AND PROPHETS. YOU ARE TRULY QUEENS AND YOUR HAIR IS YOUR CROWN.

    • Bitch pleeeeeeeeeease!!

      Thank You!!!

  • Educated Diva

    Aaaawwwww… that was great! Thanks Sesame street! Thxs for acknowledging the issues we as black females face with our image in this world! It’s always great to let the kids learn this at a young age!

  • star

    Nice! It’s very sad that our little girls grow up to hate their hair when they continuously hear it regarded in a negative manner. We must stop training our girls to a life of self hate and low-self esteem
