  1. She is a bit too frank for the British audience. But as a Black woman I wear a wig because I have no time to wear my own hair. Not because I think straight hair is more beautiful. All women's hair is political. Not just Black people.

  2. Color blindness is bullshit a bigger lies.bcos they all have drivers license that means they see traffic lights and yet they are living in denial.

  3. Maybe he should should not be interviewing her,he's out of his journalistic realm (War, politics and hear say)

  4. I was bothered by the interrupting too, but I really got the feeling that it was not ill intended. I think he was interested in what she was saying and wanted to know more, keep the conversation going. And she was great like always.

  5. Lol…I'm laughing. In Africa there are loads of hairstyles. This hairstyle is simple 😊😊😊 I love it tho😍

  6. OMGGGG Jon Snow! She cant even get a sentence out without you interrupting. We don't want to hear what you have to say, we are interesting in what SHE has to say.

  7. Love the way Jon snow interacts with interviewees. Him, crishnan guru Murphy and of course sir Trevor McDonald are by far the best we have in uk journalism

  8.  the  hair convo with this staunch british man   made le laugh a bit I have read both americanah and half of yellow sun.. and they were amazing, honest in their simplicity and bold in observation. its really refreshing to have this African female voice in our times

  9. She's fabulously smart, intelligent,  ( yes there is a difference,)  so very self possessed,  and beautiful.  She also talks about things that the African American woman cannot broach,  or chooses not to.

  10. After all your education,you deny colour blindness.How do call a brown or yellow  complexioned person black?

  11. I feel sorry for her that he just does not get the point. A lot of work still has to be done on this topic…Americanah a first step to deconstruct Western ideal of beauty

  12. I would like to know if this journalist talks over all his guests like this, or if he feels more comfortable talking over her because she's a black woman.
