CNN: 'Can I touch it?' The fascination with natural, African-American hair by Lisa Respers France

I cannot begin to describe how many times random people have asked could they touch my hair. Unless it's a really close friend, it really irks me and makes me feel uncomfortable like I am some sort of specimen. Everyone has hair; I have never asked to touch anyone's hair before...I also have had people who did not ask--which just makes me angry regardless if I know them or not. Hair is hair--chill out and keep your unwelcome hands to yourself!! (If it's a little kid, it's different. Kids are supposed to be curious--I just make them wash their hands first.)
