Is D.L. Hughley's Nappy-Headed Comment an Example of Extreme Color-Aroused Disorder (ECA)?

I am an American woman of African descent who does not agree with the boycott of DL Hughley. I was offended by the term "ho" not the term nappy-headed. I proudly wear my hair natural as do most of my friends. And though a couple of us have soft curls, most have nappy hair. I am more offended by the fact that African women in American are ashamed to wear their hair natural for fear that they will be what God intended women of African descent to be, and that is "nappy headed."

Anonymous, I agree with you that there is nothing at all wrong with having nappy hair. "Nappy" is the natural state of many people's African hair and "natural" is a good thing.

What is wrong is to use the phrase "nappy-headed" as an epithet, because that behavior shows antagonism toward our natural African hair.

People who have extremely antagonistic attitudes toward the immutable physical characteristics of others are people (e.g. toward the skin-color or natural hair of others) are people who suffer from Extreme Color-Aroused Disorder (ECA).

In this disorder, just seeing and perceiving the immutable skin-color or other immutable color-associated characteristics of oneself and/or another person is enough to arouse extreme ideation, emotion and behavior in the sufferer of Extreme Color-Aroused Disorder. The behavior of publicly ridiculing strangers about immutable color-associated physical characteristics is one of the symptoms of Extreme Color-Aroused Disorder (ECA). We know that this behavior is extreme because it often leads to physical fights, legal liability, loss of job, loss of family contacts, loss of social status, lost income and loss future prospects for the perpetrators of this extremely color-aroused public epithet behavior.

Such behavior in the workplace often leads to expensive and time-consuming legal claims against both the offending employee AND the employer. With so much at stake, clearly making strangers the subject of color-aroused epithets in public, for no logical or rational reason, clearly is an extreme behavior symptomatic of Extreme Color-Aroused Disorder. No fully rational person would willingly incur so much trouble for the sake of insulting a stranger.
