One father taught his baby girl how to set boundaries when it comes to her personal space, and cyber citizens are here for it!
A video posted on Twitter by user @DatOneHaitian shows a little girl walking out the yard carrying a backpack and rocking her voluminous natural afro as her dad asks her what to do if someone wants to touch her hair.
Her adorable response is, “Uh don’t touch my hair”, to which her father responds, “Good job”.
According to Forbes, touching a black girl’s hair is invasive and micro-aggressive behaviour. The only thing more offensive is assuming that it’s okay to touch a person’s hair and proceeding to touch it without getting permission.
