Why does Africa shave it's daughter's hair? I think the hair diserves a chance to grow very long and beautiful from birth. Let live. Blessings everywhere.

Because maintaining afros are a lot of work and most women prefer to cut it short and then use a wig or hair extensions.

There are more urgent questions, like why does Africa cut off the clitorises of young girls?

Genital mutilation, canabalism, sexual assault, toruture, mass killing, civil war. Those questions are answered with a simple response: blame white people, colonization, and Europeans

Literally blame everyone but yourself. That is what Africa does. Head shaving is the least of Africa’s worries and actually makes perfect sense in intense heat

With the possible exception of genital mutilation (NOT confined to Africa btw) all that you describe at one point or the other were prevalent in northern Europe. You should be praising the Romans, the Greeks and also the Egyptians and Middle Eastern societies.
