Also, I have seen black men and women with natural red hair.
Yeah, actually, my stepmom is Jamaican, and her older brother's hair goes really really RED when he gets alot of sun. Apparently that has some stigma attached to it, because it was reminicent of lower class workers, who would end up with bleached red hair from working in the sun (sort of the way tans were viewed in Europe at the turn of the century) and when he was in his teens he dyed it black. According to my stepmom, it looked ridiculous - completely unnatural.
