Yesterday, I speculated that one reason Jacob Savage, author of “The Vanishing” in The Forward about how so many younger Jews have been kept out of the really good jobs during the Great Awokening to make room for The Diverse, is sore is that, while he’s a fine journalist, he’s stuck writing for the ethnic press while the New York Times is focused on hiring journalists who have what it takes to cover the Hair Touching Crisis that has led to World War Hair. And then today:
For Black equestrians with natural hair, finding a helmet that fits can be virtually impossible –– another barrier to inclusion in a sport that remains overwhelmingly white. Helmet companies say there isn’t a simple fix. https://t.co/hhYIBqZV8B pic.twitter.com/Io9myQ4wKJ— The New York Times (@nytimes) March 3, 2023
Did Seymour Hersh or Michael Kinsley ever write about how the helmet industry discriminated against Black equestrians with natural hair?
I don’t think so.
