Walgreens deliberately segregates hair products by way of ethnicity.
Murray'€™s Pomade, Royal Crown, and (for Casual Fridays) Sportin' Waves are a FULL AISLE away from the white man's hair spray and comb-friendly, honeydew-flavored styling gel. Being that white is not an ethnicity, why must we, as black men, be ghettoed into a separate aisle? If we are greasy are we, de facto, sleazy? Does kinky of hair amount to kinky of character? This black man of fine coif says, "NO!" -- STREET BONERS and TV CARNAGE »

Your Say

Politicaly incorrect factual answer: It's because these products are among the most shoplifted, so they're placed on aisles with more security/observation. Other notables on the 'pilfer' list (it really exists, you can find them on the net) are pain relivers, condoms, pregnancy tests, and Axe cologne products. Next time you're in a store near these items, looks around: always an observation station nearby.
