Re: I whant my man back!
 
Actually, "skinhead" is a racist term. Skinheads were commonly men, who were known as white supremacists and associated with acts of racism and that is where the term is derived from. There is no if/ands or buts.

However, not every bald person is a skinhead- skinheads are self-identified. You should check up on your history a bit.

Both definitions are correct. In the UK the term is generally used to refer to bald people. The name also carries negative connotations in some parts of the world and is likely why it was removed. There's no need for the attitude displayed in your post. Perhaps you should follow your own advice and do your own research a bit more thoroughly too.
