American idiot

Like many women with naturally curly hair, Corallys Ortiz just wanted to give her hair a break this past week — but a woman by the name of Donna was not happy about it.
The reporter and meteorologist on Tennessee’s WBBJ posted a video on Facebook of the voicemail she got after her weekend weather report, in which a caller makes a racist comment about Ortiz’s naturally curly hair. Ortiz, who is of Dominican and Puerto Rican descent, tells Yahoo Lifestyle: “It’s the most racist thing I’ve ever dealt with in my life.”
In the voicemail, which Ortiz plays in the video clip, the caller says: “This is for the weather girl tonight — please don’t wear your hair like that anymore. It just doesn’t look good at all. Please change it back to something more normal, not something that’s all n*****y-looking.”
Once more, a white supremacist did the world a favor by showing her ignorance. Curly, nappy, wooly hair is natural; straight hair is recessive.
