My dumb ass reading only the title: why are they being so harsh to black software developers having unkempt hair?


Maybe this is an odd way to go about it, but from a character design standpoint I’d like to know what are some black hairstyles people would like to see represented more—can anyone fill me in?


I personally need to see two-strand twists, locs of various lengths, and locs braided into protective hairstyles like cornrows. But, it’s really about needing the textures to be more detailed.


Cool. But it’s missing some info, they don’t show in the guide how to convert those hair curves in Blender and Maya to something that can be used in a game engine. Do I need to use hair cards? Or turn that into a mesh?

The only examples in the guide that are possible in a game engine without further work are the cartoony hair meshes.


FWIW people should be able to do whatever they want to with their body. Straighteners need the carcinogenic elements removed, that’s it.

This campaign and the related initiatives are great, but it doesn’t absolve its parent company (Proctor & Gamble) from its ongoing harm to Black and brown people. P&G sells skin bleaching/lightening products. After years of criticism, many companies limited distribution of the bleaching products in the U.S. However, they still invest in it and sell it abroad in places like South East Asia. In 2020, P&G only committed to renaming these products, as if the name was the issue, and it’s profiting from colorism.

Also, the company still sells chemical hair relaxers like Ultra Sheen. In 2022, an 11-year study following 33,000 women found relaxers linked to higher rates of uterine, endometrial, and ovarian cancer. And yet P&G, and their competitors like Unilever, continue to sell these products.

Study excerpt for the curious: …nih.gov/…/study-finds-hair-straightening-chemica…

However, in the paper they note that several chemicals found in straighteners (such as parabens, bisphenol A, metals and formaldehyde) could be contributing to the increased uterine cancer risk observed.


I doubt they did this without their eye on the bottom line, but it’s great this happened regardless.
