Ce tweet raciste qui associe coupé afro à "négligée" et "manque de respect" me fait penser à "Americanah" d'Adichie. Dans ce livre sur le racisme aux EU elle s'étend sur un aspect faussement anodin:les cheveux de l'héroïne, qui concentrent les haines, les fantasmes, les angoisses
“Relaxing your hair is like being in prison. You're caged in. Your hair rules you. You didn't go running with Curt today because you don't want to sweat out this straightness. You're always battling to make your hair do what it wasn't meant to do.”
“Just a little burn,” the hairdresser said. “But look how pretty it is. Wow, girl, you’ve got the white-girl swing!”
Her hair was hanging down rather than standing up, straight and sleek, parted at the side and curving to a slight bob at her chin. The verve was gone." 1/2
"She did not recognize herself. She left the salon almost mournfully; while the hairdresser had flat-ironed the ends, the smell of burning, of something organic dying which should not have died, had made her feel a sense of loss." 2/2
