It seems that PWPs (predominately white publications) don’t want to give credit where it’s due. Instead, they often ignore the many fashion and hair trends black people have created until a white person makes it acceptable.

Brands like Lucky, Vogue, Marie Claire, etc, are constantly praising these styles that have been around for generations as if they are new. Why?
