I could never get a clear cut answer to this. Does anyone know and if so can you provide some scholarship on it? Thanks.

Because they had long, black hair that they wore in oiled ringlets.

Do you have any scholarship to support that? I think you are right but just saying that without any scholarship really means nothing.

I don't get it. How am I supposed to see "Black headed" in that?

Re: Does anyone know the reason why the Sumerians were called the "Black Headed People?"
In this google book, the Akkadians were called "black-headed" people, not the Sumerians:

[link to books.google.com]

The sculptures of this period distinguish sharply between the ethnological types of the Sumerians and Akkadians. The Sumerians shaved their heads and their faces, while the Akkadians wore long hair and full beards and mustaches. Hence the phrase "black-headed ones" originated in this period as a description of the Akkadians in contrast to the Sumerians. Semitic kings say that the gods have given them sovereignty over the "black-headed ones".

That is the dumbest explanation ive heard yet! if that were the case than how would they know they were black without anything to contrast against.

Sumer or Sumerians are pure invention. They never existed except in the head of some sick minded Jew scholars.

The Chaldeans were called that way by their goddess ISHTAR

No, there must have been people with varying coloration. Otherwise, why have a distinguishing name?

Just guessing here. They are Moors, which have black skin.
