Here's a TV cliche for the new age.....

Why is that gay black men in law enforcement on TV shows, whether police officers or as private investigators, are bald?

Chris Didion of Judd Risk Management on 'Eyes' is the latest example.

Here are a few others:

Officer Julien Lowe - 'The Shield'
Keith Charles - 'Six Feet Under'
Sgt. Roger Fisk - 'Homicide: Life On The Street'

All of these shows are set in the main TV dimension. The new version of 'Kojak' is definitely off in another dimension, but it kinda makes you wonder if the trend applies to Ving Rhames' interpretation of Theo Kojak.

Is he suppresssing forbidden desires?

It would certainly be the splainin for the lollipops.......
