Over the past few weeks, an altered photo of First Lady Michelle Obama has been running miles around the internet:

This picture is obviously photoshopped, however one can not deny how beautiful the First Lady would look with a head full of natural curls. Of course, Mrs. Obama is already stunning.

If Mrs. Obama did show up to a event with a natural hair style, what would the reaction be? Even though many black women have begun to embrace their natural textures, we still live in a society where bone straight hair is seen as professional and natural is not. This is not in any way attacking our sistas with perms. Do ya thang Queens!! It’s just unfortunate that sistas with natural hairstyles are sometimes under more pressure and scrutiny because of their natural curls.

Nevertheless, the picture above is beautiful and I would love to see the First Lady rock an afro one day. What are your thoughts?
