So I guess most of us heard of the Giuliana comments about Zendaya's dreadlocks. If not then please watch this video.

Now the whole point here is not to crucify Giuliana or get her out of TV or something. I was just surprised by the amount of disagreement about this comment. White and black people said things like "Zendaya over reacted/It was not racist, stop making everything about race" etc. While a large group of people seemed to share the "it was racist, she should watch what she says/stop trying to make us black people look super sensitive" thought.

 

What do you think? Was it racist? What is racism for you?

And please vote if you feel like it ^^

 

Keep in mind that I don't want to start a war over this. It's not even about Giuliana. I just want to know what most people think about racism. Let's keep it civil guys (if anyone decides to join me haha)

I think her comment was stereotypical not racist as hairstyles have nothing to do with a persons race.
