Let's Look At Black Women Rocking Black Hairstyles (Rather Than Kardashians)

Posted: Updated:

Another day, another Kardashian trying to appropriate black culture.

On Tuesday, Khloe Kardashian posted a picture on Twitter of her hair in Bantu knots, and even went to the extent of calling herself a "Bantu babe."

She later deleted the photo, then re-uploaded it with the caption, "I like this one better."

As expected, she received her share of Twitter backlash, and responded, tweeting, "You guys never disappoint! LMAO" and "😂😂😂😂😂 I needed this 😂😂😂😂," shortly after the picture made its rounds online.

But while Khloe may think nothing of wearing Bantu knots, they're not simply just a cool "new" way to do your hair — they're a part of black culture. And black people have been wearing their hair this way for centuries, so let's skip the appropriate next time.

And it seems as though sister Kylie Jenner followed suit when she posted a photo of herself on Instagram sporting bright red cornrows just a few hours later — which unfortunately isn't anything new for the 19-year-old.

So instead, let's look at some pics of divine black women rocking their magnificent, natural locks in these stunning styles.
