My opinion.....well, I am biased as I sport a natural afro and facial hair AND I wear it to work. Does that make me uncivilized? Not so much of an issue of race as it is a lack of cultural understanding. Or maybe they understand american culture just enough. The implication, I think reflects the American standard for an acceptable black ale in the work force. For thier next trick...Nivea will replace gold grills with real teeth and turn video hoes into video ladies.
