Can black people get lice?

Someone told me yesterday that black people can get lice due to the grease in their hair, is this true?
Is lice somehow related to the way people care for their hair?
I do not believe it but I just want to be sure.

The black community (or African Americans) actually can get lice. It is just very, very rare, due to the thickness, and texture of a black person's hair. (If you do have hair) If you don't have any hair, then both you and me know that you cannot get head lice.
