Default Why do brothaz overwhelmingly prefer havin mustaches??

I was watchin Inside the NBA just now and Deon Cole was a guest and he joked to Charles and Kenny that "normally I don't trust black dudes without mustaches.."

Also in Ether nas is like "you no mustache havin, with whiskers like a rat..."

and also if you look up pictures of black celebs or just black dudes in general i'd say like 90% of them have mustaches. i cant tell any particular aesthetic difference between brothas that have them and brothas that don't, aside from the simple fact of a mustache beign present or not. it doesnt seem to enhance or detract from appearance one way or another.

So, my fellow posters of cocoa complexion, how explain you this significance of the 'stache?

Most black people can't grow anything more than a mustache.

I am being serious. The majority of black men can't grow full beards. They have baby faces and all they can grow is a mustache with a small goatee. My dad was the same way and damn near all of the black people I know are like that too.

i've noticed this too, when white guys have a stache it just makes them look like a pedophile.

Well plenty of black men can grow bears, as evidenced by james harden, tyson chandler, bill russell etc.

But even if your premise is basically correct, it still doesn't explains why so many overwhelmingly decide to have a mustache. Plenty of white people can't grow full ass beards. But they don't all elect to have mustaches instead. Some have beards, some have goatees, some have mustaches, and some are clean shaven etc. But it seems like black peeps are so overwhelmingly inclined toward the mustache, I'm just curious if theres a reason for that.

Mexicans all have mustaches, but that's some sort of long held cultural thing I guess. I'm sure there's some sort of explanation to it, altho I don't know what it is. It appears to be a black cultural thing as well, I'm just curious what the actual basis for it is, if there is one.

All the old school brothers we looked up too back in the day had the "stache."

Cab Calloway, Billy Ecstine, Billy Dee Williams, ect.

Although, two of the smothers brothers ever Jackie Wilson and Johnny Mathis never rocked the "stache."

Either did Nat. But back then performers of all races were much more clean cut.

But it just seems like brothas today act like its odd or abnormal for a black dude not to have a mustache. It seems very inexplicable to me. Like if I were carmelo anthony and all I could grow was that hideous hitler mustache, i think i'd just skip it altogether.

Back then, they tried to be more excepted by the white race. So they had a conk in their hair and no "stache."

James Dean didn't have a mustache nor did Tony Curtis.
