Chris Rock was on Q this week to talk about his new docu-comedy, "Good Hair." According to the film, black people account for 80% of the spending on weaves and hair relaxers in America (that's a $9 billion dollar business)! But this is an industry predominantly controlled by Asian, Indian and white people. White ownership of "black" industries has been the core of several Chris Rock comedy routines in the past. What do you think? How important is it for the race of industrialists to align with the race of the consumers at the other end of the cash register? Do you agree with Rock that social equality would have been achieved more effectively through business clout over societal change?
