    Vermont (TheGrio)– Some are shocked about the news that a white barber declined to service a black patron in a small-town East Coast barbershop last month. Others are not.

    The controversy over Dr. Darryl Fisher’s inability to get his haircut while visiting Bellows Falls, Vermont (population 3,500) started with a letter to the editor of a local newspaper.

    In the letter, Fisher explains that Mike Aldrich, a white man, lied about being the barber so he wouldn’t have to cut Fisher’s hair. Aldrich has since apologized and says he turned Dr. Fisher away because he wasn’t sure he’d do the best job cutting a black man’s hair.

    Joe Gurevich, the enrollment and marketing manager at the American Barber Institute finds the explanation believable and says he understands why the barber chose not to serve the client.

    “Some people only know how to cut with scissors, and only know how to cut certain styles,” he said.
