    Never let a loaded barber cut your hair!

    I was amazed to speak to an intelligent, educated, white 20-something who didn’t know what an afro is. Don’t they teach kids anything in school anymore?

    When my son asks for something like that I tell him when you graduate high school, college, get a job, and get married…you can have anything your wife says you can have. :)

    Have known one particular middle-schooler who would not cut his hair all school year. Had an incredibly huge ’fro come June.

    So dad is saying you gotta have money to NOT spend it? I am able to not buy haircuts all day, and am no deeper in debt at the end of the day. Hmmm..

    Why does one need money to grow a fro? What he really is saying is, “I’m the parent and you wear your hair the way I say you should.”

    EVERY parental argument boils down to “Because I said so”.

    I have to admit that I miss Joe’s and Marcy’s old hairstyles, which you can still see in the top banner on this page.

    Will Smith would definitely be cast to play Joe in the live-action version.

    pschearer: “Black studies” have been banned. Only dead white male imperialists may be studied. Next up for the curriculum, “The Glories of Slavery”. I had to study that back in the Jim Crow days.

    My husband is either Irish or Scottish (depending on how you pronounce the last name) and when he was in high school, mid-70’s) he decided to get a permanant and wear an ‘afro’ for a couple of months.

    Imagine this:
    Elkmont, North Alabama/South Tennessee (It’s a split town)
    A skinny, blond headed, white boy strolling down a crowded high school hallway with his ‘fro blowing in the breeze!

    Nobody, but nobody!, took even 1 picture!

    Now he doesn’t have any hair to speak of.
