  1. She is a bit too frank for the British audience. But as a Black woman I wear a wig because I have no time to wear my own hair. Not because I think straight hair is more beautiful. All women's hair is political. Not just Black people.

  2. I was bothered by the interrupting too, but I really got the feeling that it was not ill intended. I think he was interested in what she was saying and wanted to know more, keep the conversation going. And she was great like always.
