Video: Willow Smith vs. Sesame Street - Whip My Hair (Fraggle Roc Nation Remix)

The video was made by Joey Mazzariono, head writer at
Sesame Street
for his adopted daughter Segi from
 Ethiopia. He noticed that his daughter started having problems while playing with Barbie Dolls and the reason was that she wanted long straight and blond hair that she could bounce around.

This video has struck a chord with African-American women and the video has already crossed 402,141 views and counting.

The TV writer isn't the first to tackle the taboo topic. Comedian Chris Rock made a documentary titled Good Hair in 2009 after his five-year-old daughter asked him, "'Daddy, how come I don't have good hair?" The film is about the $9 billion black hair business.
