Yes, that’s right. Racist hair. Oppressive, colonialist, inauthentic hair. Hair that is in and of itself a political statement, a badge of ethnic resistance against the Powers That Be — one being diluted by carpetbagging imperialists who presume to insinuate themselves into the culture of the Other, to normalize the resistance such hair represents by the force of casual colonization and ultimately, assimilation.
It is the tyranny of the racially and ethnically unsanctioned coif. And it must be snuffed out. With prejudice, if necessary. Because one cannot be tolerant without expressing her intolerance with intolerance — and neo-colonialist hair is a direct metaphorical assault on the identity and authenticity of the Other, and so cannot be tolerated.
For the tolerance.
