I just asked a guy on the train if his baldness was due to his political views, his genetics, or both – and man that did not go over well.
Let’s be honest, making assumptions about strangers is rude and determining the difference between male-pattern baldness and racist assholes is a safety issue.
Both racism and baldness progress naturally with aging in predictable ways. Receding hairlines in men and women can come from hormonal changes and medical conditions; whereas shaving your head for political reasons is the result of having idiots for parents.
Finally, there is a third option where racists were blessed with convenient baldness – so all I’m saying is there’s a difference and it matters.
