Like a lot of Black folk back in the early 80's, I got a Jheri Curl. It was the thing to do with Black hair for both men and women. The Jheri Curl was a very popular hairstyle among us because it gave us the appearance of what a lot of us considered to be "Good Hair." Celebrities like Eddie Murphy, Rick James, Michael Jackson, James Brown, and many others wore the 'doo' which our culture embraced whole heartily.

A Personal Historical Perspective.
Orlando, my Ancestral home, is a far different place now than I remember. We have lived in Orlando going back seven generations on my mother’s maternal side, that we know of. My Great-Great Grandmother Maggie McDonald was here when my Great-Great Grandfather George Davis, Jr. moved here in the 1880’s from New Orleans.

In psychology there is a concept known as "projection". 'Projection' is when a person projects their behavior and responses onto another as if the other person feels, reacts and responds as they would. In short, the projectionist says, because I feel, act, react or respond this way you must feel act, react or respond in the same way, because that’s how I am.

It is now true that seniors are found eating cheap pet food from China to live and then vomiting that filth back up. And if they eat it in a park they are arrested for trespassing, vagrancy, ad nauseum. In jail they still go unfed. They are given cheap baloney -cat food again- with American cheese three times a day on very lousy no nutrition bread. This way the poor bastards won't try and get arrested for a meal.
