Pam Grier shared a throwback picture of herself from high school and said she used to hide razor blades in her big hair to fight off country girls.
My East High School Senior portrait. My Big hair hid razor blades to fight off country ass girl gangs and scary hairy creatures hiding under the bed at night.

Sis went to East High School and she shared that her school was not segregated but liberal and wealthy.
No, not segregated. East High liberal, wealthy. Some of The rich kids dropped off in families limousines. First time I saw that, thought a funeral at the school. I rode my bike 8 miles sometimes, or 10 of us would climb in a bros 1958 Blue Ford, pay gas money to the East side.
Her razor blade trick is all too familiar, often used to defend yourself when the need arose.
When I saw the word razor I knew it was for your protection. May me think of the different hairstyles the slaves use to wear to hide secrets. By the way your hair was beautiful just like you.

the razor blade trick was popular at the public high school in my hood but they pinned them in their Afro’s + if you were a long hair fair skinned you may get a hair cut & face slash i was sent to Catholic school & classmates who were children of wealthy morticians had limo’s

Even though the razor blade story was interesting, her throwback picture reminded us that Pam Grier is that girl!
Twitter sang her praises calling her ‘a badass’ and ‘gorgeous”.
I’m obsessed with her https://t.co/xUMoz6xv1a
