NYT Finds New Source Of Racism: Equestrian Helmets

  • The New York Times on Friday published a lengthy piece about a source of systemic racism that no one has ever noticed before: It seems that equestrian helmets are racist because they don’t accommodate the dreadlocks that some black horse riders wear.
  • One black rider’s mother lamented: “Mostly everything in this sport isn’t designed for us.”
  • Well, that’s got to change, and these Jackie Robinsons of the Coiffure, with the Times’ generous help, are leading the way to the Equestrian Helmet Justice that our society so desperately needs.
