My BB&W opertatives came upon this video and shared it with me, and while it’s funny, there’s whole lot of truth to it. While the white chicks in this video call it “bitchy resting face,” in the hood we call it “mean mug.” Of course, when it comes to dating and trying to be approachable to men of all races, colors and creeds, the “mean” rest face can be a serious impediment, especially if a man has some presuppositions and stereotypes about black women coming from the womb being neck-twirling biotches.
The solution? I’m not sure. Because walking around with a silly grin on your face for no reason is probably equally repellant.
