Texas Governor virtue signals about protecting natural Black hair

The "Crown Act"

Texas Governor Greg Abbott pushed the conspiratorial narrative that Black people are discriminated against because of their “natural” hair. He made a video signing a Texas version of the “Crown Act.” This stands for Creating a Respectful and Open World for Natural Hair.

The bill was introduced by Representative Rhetta Bowers, who artificially straightens her hair and doesn’t wear it naturally herself.
