    Well I do not know if you can say most 3b's are from those ethnicities, but I would say that if you are one of those ethnicities then you have a better likelihood of being a 3b. Sorry though I can not prove your statement because I am an Iraqi Jew with 3b hair, but I am a guy :tongue:

  • MarllonMarllon Posts: 104Registered Users
    No, I didn't notice that. I've seen many unmixed blacks with 3b hair, as well as many unmixed whites. I guess many mixed-race and/or Middle Eastern people have 3b hair, but how can anyone really be sure they represent the majority of people with type 3b hair? I don't see how that can be discerned without a census.

    Not all Latins are of mixed-race stock, many of them are just black, white, Asian, or Native American.

    I wouldn't say all 3b girls are mixed.
    However, I'm biracial and I've noticed most (if not all) of my biracial friends have 3b/c hair too.

    Well I guess I am Hispanic then-- "Hispanic" specifically refers to a person residing in the United States or Latin America of Spanish descent.

    Please do not make assumptions on race based on hair. This is something NC is trying to do away with.
