I think probably the worst subject I ever took in school was Statistics. I hated everything about it, and what made it worse was that no matter what level of education I made it to, I always had that class and it was always mandatory.
Even though I hated stats, as IÂ affectionatelyÂ called it, I understood why it was necessary and I understood the premise behind all the drama ofÂ Standard Deviation. The thing is, the way our brain works is that we need to prove that a phenomenon exists by using variables and techniques to justify it.
So if you ask me, â€˜Is hair important to black women?â€˜, my answer would be a firmÂ yes. And if you asked me to prove it, well for that I would have to go to the stats.
