Should White Women Be Able To Join The Natural Hair Movement?

Hello Beautiful posted a really interesting piece on an issue that hasn't come up yet around here (Jezebel etc.) but that I know is sure to any minute since the natural hair movement - like anything else that is trending in Brooklyn and/or among African-Americans - is sure to be ripe for co-option by mainstream America soon. And because in any discussion of discrimination against or devaluation of WOC there is always going to be a White girl saying "What about me?!!"http://hellobeautiful.com/2014/07/02/whi...

Here is also an interesting rejoinder to that piece (with which I wholeheartedly agree, though in full disclosure it was written by a friend).

Thoughts? I am especially interested in the reaction from non-WOC readers. Do these articles make sense to you or do they make you feel some type of way?
