I was struck by how many of the incidents listed here
… are people (and it sounds like all women) wanting to touch a black person’s hair.
What the hell, people? When is it ever cool to touch a stranger’s hair in public? Is this something women somehow think is acceptable when directed at other women? As a man, I cannot imagine asking a woman I had never met before for permission to touch her hair. That is all kinds of off-the-charts skeevy, even before the racial implications here.
