Default Why do the majority of black men in the USA shave their head bald?

Reasons why it’s worth to be a PC gamer in 2012.




- The hardest thing about getting a Mac is telling your parents that you're gay.

- If I had the choice between being gay and owning a Mac, I would rather be gay, because if I owned a Mac I would be both gay and own a horrible computer.

- Imagine a giant cock flying towards your mouth, and there's nothing you can do about it. And you're like "Oh man, I'm gonna have to suck this thing", and you brace yourself to suck this giant cock. But then, at the last moment, it changes trajectory and hits you in the eye. You think to yourself "Well, at least I got that out of the way", but then the giant cock rears back and stabs your eye again, and again, and again. Eventually, this giant cock is penetrating your gray matter, and you begin to lose control of your motor skills. That's when the giant cock slaps you across the cheek, causing you to fall out of your chair. Unable to move and at your most vulnerable, the giant cock finally lodges itself in your anus, where it rests comfortably for 4, maybe 5 hours. That's what using Mac OSX is like.

maybe because their hair is really curly and its hard to do anything with it other than shave it off, have an afro, dreadlocks, or do the molded 1980s will smith look

my buddy from a long time ago said it was a pain in the ass, he and his family had to put oil in their hair and stuff cuz it got dry and stuff

I haven't really noticed that.... while it's more common than other races with bald heads, they usually leave a little there, so it's like a crew cut more than a complete shave.

i have several reasons i will start with the most obvious. all black people's hair grows curly and into an "afro" if left alone. in western cultures this style is not desirable and is considered unatractive and a sign of low status. one must only look at the popularity of "ethnic" (black) hair products, whos main goal is to straighten hair to look more like a caucasian or mongoloid hair style. i have even seen many black women with shaved heads at work. i asked my friend about this style and he told me they just wear a "weave" when they want to look nice and a shaved head allows them to appear to have all completely straight hair.
chemical hair relaxers and hair "weaves" are a multi million dollar business in america. with a large percentage of blacks below the poverty line many men shave their head every day because it is preferable over an afro. this is much like a man who is losing some of his hair (see photos of switchWRX) and being completely clean shaven is more desirable in his culture, although it requires more work.

another reason i can think of is that black males are a largely disproportionate number of criminals and violent/sex offenders in any place they live. in many places a single strand of hair can identify the perpitrator of a crime if it is left behind at the scene. shaving off hair is a way a criminal can help lessen the chance of leaving evidence behind. many other popular styles in black culture come from criminal or prison culture. consider the "doo rag" wearing a sock as a hat or "low rider" pants.
im sure there are other reasons why the shaved head is so popular among black men and women. maybe one day we will be lucky enough to have a black bald person join this forum and tell us their personal reasons. if i can think of any more i will post them myself.

I say they do it, because black people have to use all that grease in their hair or it breaks or something, so it's just easier to cut it off. I've seen so many black girls with grease in their hair that looked like it had been there for 6 months. Pretty gross.

It's much cleaner. If I was black I would shave my head too or have it very short.

Ok.. that is so damn true.. and so damn funny.. hahaha

You need to get color on your head first. A never before shaved white guy head is usually so white it’s blue. After its initial bluish stage it goes to this weird kinda purple looking thing stage. White guys should buzz it and get sun on it for at least 2 to 3 weeks before shaving.

Oh and I use Nair or Veet and an old credit card on mine. Way easier then shaving.

Typical black guy with hair:


Typical (same) black guy without hair:



Typical white guy without hair:


Conclusion: Most black guys can pull off the bald look. They can in fact look better bald in many cases. With the occasional exception, the average white guy tends to look like a cancer patient...

I'd love to shave my head, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to pull it off.
