10 Things We Wouldn’t Have Without Black Women

1. Du-rags

Now du-rags are simply an accessory many white people wear because it’s trendy or fashionable, but originally du-rags were popularized by black women and men. Basically, it’s a black variation of a satin scarf or bonnet that is used to cover hair for protection or fashion.

2. Gold hoops and bamboo earrings

All these accessories can easily get you followed around on the street, but some of the trendy white ladies out there can rock them without any stigma.
