This is not true. Indian women who sell their hair are DIRT-poor. The Indian woman whose hair is used in a $300-$500 weave prolly got no more than $10 or $15 for it. Some don't get a dime! I saw this program where in some temple in India, the monks, whateva, once a year shave their hundreds, maybe even thousands of women members' heads, bundle the shaved hair and sell it to American middlemen/distributors. When one recently shaved woman was informed of the monks' practice, she looked stunned, then said she didn't care - the money went to the temple.
of course they are not getting the ridiculous amount of money the koreans are making off of their hair...the context of that statement was made in addressing brother james assertion that the asians are getting paid off black women....
