I'm a black female who enjoys surfing
the net. I toured your web site with a very open mind and found
it very interesting. I never knew blond people were discriminated
against. I've heard a few "dumb blonde" jokes and thought
- gee if these were "dumb black" or "dumb brunette"
jokes I sure wouldn't like it very much. The thing is that when
these jokes were told (at work-I'm a secretary) the blondes all
laughed too. I didn't think they were funny - just ignorant. It's
like the red headed step child jokes that are told also. Not funny.
I enjoyed the visit and will be back - hope you don't mind input
from a nonblonde.
and a 2nd email...
Blond is just seen as the preferred look in the Western
Hemisphere for women. When I was a kid Clairol had an advertising
slogan which stated that "blonds have more fun". It's
part of the western culture. As for Dolly Parton - even though
I live in the South I've never cared for her, or country music.
My man is treated with much respect because he very intelligent
- and shows it. He has the looks of a blond Adonis, and once anyone
hears him in conversation they know they're in the presence of
You were speaking of people bad mouthing blonds and
then bleaching their hair blond when they haven't any respect
for them in the first place. I can relate to that being black
because many non - blacks like our music (jazz, soul, blues, rap)
and also our dances and singing style, but have no respect for
us as people. I can't stand this - so I know where you're coming
