Science Corner #2: Black people's hair

I've gone back and renamed the post on gay people's voices as "Science Corner #1." Now for the next edition of this informative feature. We all know that most Black people's hair is nappy and frizzy, unlike the relatively fine hair found on the heads of Asians, Europeans, Arabs, etc. Why is this? Well, I did some research on the internet and found an answer: "Like natural air conditioning, this frizzy, kinky hair insulates the head from the brutal intensity of the sun's rays." (from Hair Story: Untangling the Roots of Black Hair in America). So there you have it folks, mystery solved.
