Hey y’all!!! It’s been too long since we’ve talked. I have no excuse for why I haven’t posted. I just haven’t been feeling it. *shrug* So, anyway, considering all the injustices going on, I thought it’d only be right that I discuss a phenomenon that’s swiftly on the rise. You’ve seen them around everywhere. When you least expect it, there they are. What am I talking about?
The Black Bonnet Mafia.
You know what it is
The Black Bonnet Mafia is a group of women who venture out in public places wearing their black satin hair bonnets, which are for home use only. I have a black bonnet, and you probably have one, too. But do you wear yours to a quick trip to Wal-Mart? Wait, don’t answer that. Anyway, lately, I’ve been seeing a ton of BBM members at the most unusual places: the store, mall, utility company. It’s insane! They are about as many members as they are in the Divine 9 and Nation of Islam combined. Why is this happening?
Maybe they’re just too lazy to take their hair down or don’t think its worth it for a quick run to pick Lil Man up from school. Perhaps, they figure we can’t see the bonnet because it’s black. Seriously, I have seen women out in complete outfits and makeup but Whatever the reason, it has to stop.
Promise me you will not join this organization, or if you are involved, you’ll turn in your membership card ASAP. We’re embarrassing our children and ourselves. I consider myself a friend, and friends doing let friends wear their bonnets in public.
