It's a form of othering. No doubt the person who asked that question has never asked a white person "OMG how long would it take for you to grow a limp ass bowl cut you should totally do it." It's a weird statement to make, but somehow that person finds it acceptable to say to a black person.

Lol I've gotten asked this by people since I was a kid, but mainly because Ive always had a pretty low cut hair style - curious as to why you find this offensive?

You should have said probably the same amount of time for you to grow a shag...let's go for it! Funny story, but don't take it too serious.

Hell naw
