I agree that it was outrageous and absurd when various media treated Marantz as the inventor of the headwrap. At the same time, I think anyone who needs a headwrap should wear one. Yeah it might be weird if a white person wore an African or Caribbean one, but just wearing a cap at night to keep one’s hair from tangling shouldn’t be controversial IMHO. As long as she doesn’t go around saying it was invented by white people…
