Woman who woke up from surgery with hair braided by doctor makes the case for more Black physicians: ‘It can save lives’

It’s called prepping for surgery. Cut the hair. It will grow back. Why make a political pity-filled scene of it all? It’s just hair. When you’re having head surgery and won’t cut your hair, and the prep nurses are afraid to touch it for liability reasons, the hair has gone way too far in ruling too many lives.

So the world needs more Black physicians because they know how to braid Black women’s hair who don’t want it cut for head surgery? Why didn’t she braid it herself? Why didn’t her family braid it?

If Yahoo News thinks she made a case for more Black doctors, because of this guy’s hair salon skills, they’re as shallow as she is. Better hope the next clinic or hospital that hires a Black doctor requires qualifications other than hair stylist.

I just don’t know how you can raise the need for a particular race of doctors based on their ability to style your hair.

Did somebody make up this story to promote Black hair? Has there been a national holiday name after it yet? BLACK HAIR DAY?

Just so you know, braiding is braiding, no matter the race, color or thickness of hair.
