And do you think that your body looks great?
“If I could have, I would have been dead!”
I’ve had it. Now all of me wants to have it all. The best way to accomplish this is to get my hair done.
Hair loss is no more common than heart disease. In fact, it’s far less common than most people assume. The statistics are clear and very, very disturbing. Over 90 percent of black men in this country, according the Centers for Disease Control, get their first haircut in their teens and 20s.
The hair loss statistics are so astounding yet most people aren’t aware of them. Most people don’t hear, “you lose your hair.” People don’t know that this happens to the same degree in white men, too. Yet white men have less of a problem with hair loss. Why? What’s going on?
What happened to me could happen to you: a simple haircut or a trip out on your own to the barber.
Here’s what happened: I saw a documentary on PBS called The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness. It’s a brilliant film that provides a riveting account of modern-day slavery and how it’s impacting us. It’s about how the “war upon drugs” has destroyed our communities and how this has led to the imprisonment or death of thousands of black people. (We’re talking about the prison industrial complex that now generates $250 billion a year.) It also examines the impact of mass incarceration on the black church, the poor, and the elderly.
The documentary features an eloquent interview with Dr. Michael Rosenfeld and his colleagues John Pfaff and Christopher Lasch. They tell of a man whose hairline has fallen out because of incarceration. The man couldn’t cut his hair because he was homeless, yet he wears an Armani suit every day. His friends and family call him “a white man’s Jim Crow.”
“I’m no longer the Jim Crow who gets all the glory.”
We see, for instance, a man who is now a millionaire, but even he cannot afford to maintain his house of a lifetime. The man has long hair, a beard, a bushy mustache, and tattoos everywhere. He’s now the whitest white man in the country.
All of this was before the mass incarceration of African Americans started in the 1980s. Back then, African Americans were being killed
