No, but you can't be serious, right?

Ever since I moved here, I started getting hit on constantly by annoying middle-aged men. Every. Single. Time. I went outside. It was genuinely ridiculous.

Recently I dyed my hair. My natural color, which is the color it was before I dyed it, is very close to #12 on this chart. It's not actually blonde, but it's as light as dark blonde shades, so I would count it as a light hair color.

I dyed it black.

I have not been hit on even once since then.

90% of the people who hit on me were black.

Ergo, apparently obnoxious middle-aged black men consider dark hair unattractive.

Is this what they call internalized racism?
