Hmmm well I tend to prefer them on women with swagger
...cause I'm gay and biased like that. Secondly I'm not as into them on white boys. Any person of color really, but there is something about fair (non Asian-olive) skin and a lot of scalp showing that just doesn't do it for me. They looked good on David Beckham, but I'm a firm believer he can wear any style. Seriously though I think it worked for him because his hair was blonde. I think it contrasts less with the skin showing. JMO.
I don't think there is anything "ghetto" about it and I grew up in the ghetto, now a brown yuppie. It's one of those styles that were really only worn by black people and because black people were, and still are to a certain extent, associated with low SES, plenty of ignorant people draw conclusions about a hair style that's practical for individuals with short coily hair.
I do think you have to be prepared to be judged if you wear you hair like this, but it's not different than a fro, dreads, or any other natural hair style, so it's nothing new for us.
