Whip My Hair and the Sesame Street Mash!

I suppose it IS possible to post the Sesame Street I Love My Hair video without also posting the Willow Smith Whip My Hair video and the mash of the two... but I think it is so adorable!  I've chosen not to resist the urge. ;-)

I believe that this kind of affirmation in popular culture brings us closer to the day when all little Black girls grow up with a love for their hair, with no hang-ups about straight hair being better than curly hair.

'I Love My Hair' (Sesame Street!)

This is so awesome.  A friend of mine sent me the link to this YouTube video, and I thought, "Oh, cool, Sesame Street is ON IT!" and resolved to post about it.  Then I saw it on, and also heard about the special Essence hair issue (more on that later) and resolved to get that and blog about that as well.  But just now I read about the story BEHIND the video, and it's so cool.  See the story at here.
