I think because a lot of black men are of mixed races and their hair is always a dead give-away as to their African roots. Same reason that black women use lace front hides the nappy roots. I am white and my black girlfriends and I have really honest discussions about cultural differences. The black girls feel that when black men shave their heads, they look less black and can keep white girls guessing about their race. Nuts, I know, but it's what they tell me.

Why are shaved bald heads so popular?

For a variety of reasons- some men begin losing their hair at a very early age, sometimes even in their early 20s. They thus think it's smarter if they shave the whole lot off rather than have a receding hairline- this would make them look middle-aged, whereas a totally bald head can actually make them look younger. Also, many men see it as fashionable- being bald has a tough, hard-man image, especially amongst the black community, and many men shave their heads to make themselves look like hard men, or at least look cool. In other cases, it can actually be a matter of convenience- some people who aren't in a position to wash their hair regularly find it easier to just shave their heads- it's also coller in the hot Summer weather!!
