Ever think we first opened the first doors of nerdland, one topic made regular and frequent appearances in the subject line of viewer e-mails. my hair. i would like to take the opportunity to answer questions about black women and hair. why tackle such a hairy topic on a political show? there are a few follicles more politicized than a woman that grow out of a black woman's head. and we'll talk a little bit about politics later, but, first, a quick teachable moment.
