Dr. Regina Benjamin, surgeon general of the United States, is warning American women of an impediment to a healthy, active life: their hairstyles.
Benjamin said that the expensive products and time-consuming procedures that some women, especially African American women, invest in to straighten and control their tight curls may deter them from working out. After all, just a little moisture could undo the hairdo that was the result of a lot of time and money.
The story pointed out some interesting research from Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center that found about a third of black women surveyed said they exercised less because they were worried about their hair.

I can see the campaign now?
“Have Fro...will GO!”
What they really want is someone to throw money out of a slow moving truck and “then” they might make an effort to give chase.
Anyone without the ‘elite’ hairdo should be subject to further examination. Yeah. Right.
It's really all about the race isn't it?
....how this donut Dolly ever got to be surgeon general of the United States is beyond me
No comment, except Barry pushed the race movement back 50 years.
Black - check
Female - check
Man, if I was a black woman, I’d shave that crap off a half inch from my head. I’d have a natural fro and any man who didn’t like it could step along down the line. And I’d wear big hoop earrings and dark lipstick and I would have an ATT-TI-TUDE that I, as a white woman, frankly cannot pull off. I’m just sayin’.
So.....she’s basically saying that the First Wookie has an adipose bedonkadonk because of her ‘weave’? It becomes CLEAR, now.
It sounds to me as if the Surgeon General is just like the AG and the Oh. Not the Surgeon General of the people of the U.S., but the SG of “my people,” just like the AG and the Oh are the AG and Prez of “my people.”
This situation is totally crap and needs to be rectified in 11/12!
"Benjamin said that the expensive products and time-consuming procedures that some women, especially African American women, invest in to straighten and control their tight curls may deter them from working out."
Incredible, stunning and massively important notions and ruminations from the intellectual core of the Obama Administration. Everyone should be taking notes.
Is it just me, or is there something wrong with a person of her size and weight telling others how to manage theirs?
Like a drop dead beautiful, hard body, highly energetic, upbeat, sexy hairdo, strong multi tasking woman such as Palin. Yep, her hairdo has really impacted her health.
Let’s see.... Obama’s energy plan consists of checking the air pressure in our tires.
Obama’s surgeon general addresses the health of the nation, by essentially suggesting that women should wear Butch Dyke haircuts..... or perhaps shave their heads. LOL
Great leadership we have.....
She is very hot.
Personally, I think cosmetics and hair products are a total waste and should be made illegal. After all, money spent so foolishly can better be spent by the government. Any unemployment caused by this ban is incidental to the greater good. Plus, anything else that irritates me should be illegal.
I am glad we dont have more important health topics to talk about........
This whole administration is concerned with nothing except the welfare of “thier people”
It is sickening...
Does anyone expect an Obama appointee to have common sense?
This is esp. true of the black extremist women he has appointed (Lisa Jackson), though the white ones are among the stupidest on earth (Napolitano, Sebelius).
The men aren’t any better - Holder, Holdren, Hansen, Sunstein, Lu, etc.
Ah, she’s beautiful.
What now? Is the government about to determine what hairdo is appropriate?
“Great leadership we have.....”
Yup. A bunch of F’n idiots we have running the country (into the ground).
So what’s her excuse?
Not only is she racist and irrelevant, but she has her hair straightened out and she’s as fat as a hippo.
I’ve noticed that over the years, the “Surgeon General” has become nothing more than a place to stick a token minority. Just what exactly does a Surgeon General do???
Operates on generals. Spouts the liberal crap the commie president wants to boost his programs.
I am a white woman with naturally curly hair. All I have to do is walk outside into any humidity. The hair I spent an hour drying straight is now curly. Why does it have to be racial??
The truth is that their hair IS different, and requires different care from that of Anglos ...
LOL! You go, Girl!
The curls are usually bigger. But I envy you, I’d love to have wild curly hair.
