On the Daily Show: Operation Black Hair

Daily Show Correspondent Jessica Williams recently debuted a satirical video on The Daily Show entitled Operation Black Hair.

In her hilarious skit, she discusses the army’s controversial standards for black women’s hair (women basically can’t wear their hair naturally, but must, instead, wear time consuming styles likes weaves or microbraids), and talks to advocates and army insiders to shine a spotlight on the utter ridiculousness of the regulations.
See the video below:

I couldn’t help guffawing while watching this, though the fact that these hair rules are enforced is infuriating.
I guess you have to laugh to keep from crying.
What do you think?
