Ann Killion Asks a Racist Question to Ayesha Curry about Steph's Cornrows

So, really, Ann Killion, the yenta sportswriter for the Chronicle, is it really cool for you to ask this bullshit question to Ayesha Curry about husband's Steph's cornrows?

  1. Curry is a "Brand" the perception of "Cornrows" is gangsta and not fitting for his "Brand"

  2. It may have been an offensive question, but you might want to see Annie K's page in the future to find out if the Currys are still talking to her. If they are, then your usual criticism of Killion would be invalid, i.e. it never bothered them.

  3. Uhhh-- I don't know what's more laughable... a white guy asserting that a white woman's question about Steph's hair being "racist" (This black dude says, "who cares"), or the white trying to be cool by calling Steph's hair cornrows? They're starter locs or twists.. LOL

    Now if she said, " Can I touch your hair Steph..." That WOULD set some sistas off- not racist per se, but one thing black (particularly) women hate.

  4. I bet if it was a white woman playing soccer with that, the ala Bo Derek style, she'd day You go girl!

  7. How on earth is the question racist? Silly and inane perhaps, but it's not racist. If a white player did something drastically different with his hair, I suspect Ann would have asked the same question. I'm sick to death of everybody throwing the term "racist" out there so irresponsibly. It minimizes the harm that true racism creates.

  8. Whatever they're called it's not a good look on anyone, ever.

  9. I'm sure Killion would tweet the same thing to Mrs Kerr if Steve suddenly sported a Brian Bosworth cut.
    Because...as u say, that's the kinda yenta Killion is.
    Next topic.

  10. White people's obsession with Black people's hair is ignorant and racist. The comment above about it being gangster proves my point. Every thing about Black people is scrutinized. Black women's bodies in particular are examined under a microscope mostly by white men. Our hair our arms our behinds what we wear. What is your fucking problem. Go harass white women. There's plenty there to keep you busy.

  11. Really Rich? Killion probably the most progressive, honest writer the Chron has these days. Have you read all of her coverage of women's soccer? Her support of Kaepernick? I respect your right to find fault with Killion, I just strongly diasagree.

  12. I am a Person of Color, & the question is not Racist to me...It's a little Nosy, but not Racist?! Btw, Curry isn't wearing Cornrows, he is wearing his Hair in Twist.

  13. I love the way everyone tries to be so different and into their own fashions and traditions these days, and if you don't comment on it "We're invisible to the masses, man" and if you *do* comment on it, "That's RACIST!" I think most ethnic groups today are like a bunch of whiney kids pining for attention.

    1. Nope, the whiniest group these days is definitely middle-aged white men.

    2. Agreed 110% @10:39. What will it be this month? A mask over the face while "protesting" when someone has a different opinion than them? Don't worry, I'm sure when they're done "protesting" they'll break the windows of local businesses or light something on fire. That is, if they have enough time after looting a foot locker and taking a knee for something else.
