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 was thinking the same thing… it probably is her. you know sesame street doesn’t autotune…

  • REALER TALK than that Fake Nickel "REAL TALK"

    The “kitchen” of your hair is the dry part at the back that tends to be nappier, and thus more difficult to control.

    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.

    That was a nice one Sesame Street. Real good look. 🙂

  • I Had to Say It!

    Oh shut the h*ll up. “Kitchen” is a term black people use to refer to the hair growing in the back of their head/nape of the neck. It’s often the most kinky/curly.

    People who always want to see the bad in everything get on my d*mn nerves.

  • 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….

    • Delight23

      😆 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.

  • PBG

    It’s actually called the “kitchen” because in older homes, kitchens were located the back of the house. It’s an antiquated term, but a lot of people still like to use it.

  • Curious1 aka I'm Just Sayin'

    CUTE….lol…awww…Sesame Street is cute

  • get out!

    @I had to say it

    H^ell no! I will not shut the h^ell up and I understand all too well what the word “kitchens” means. So it is not necessary for you to explain it!! Let me give you yet another point of view. This was the first time and at times very rare when you have programs like sesame street and numerous others that honestly show positive images of black children. (some people may remember the doll experiement still used to this day from the sixties) So, “kitchens” maybe fun to use in some instances, but in my opinion not this one!!
