There is a debate brewing online about the comments one Texas pastor made about women in his congregation wearing weave. Here’s what he said:
The staff at Resurrecting Faith was told by their pastor, A. J. Aamir that the leadership staff cannot wear weaves because of his personal insight on the costly maintenance. Pastor Aamir has taken the position that women who wear weave shows a false image of natural beauty, and resemble a woman with low self-esteem.
“Our Black people are getting weaves trying to be something and someone they are not. Be real with yourself is all I’m saying” said Pastor Aamir.
Pastor Aamir ended his rant about black women and weave by dropping this soon to be classic line:
“Long hair don’t care. What kind of mess is that? I don’t want my members so focused on what’s on their heads and not IN their heads,”
