Black-haired Capitalist

As expected, presidential election campaign produces some funny lingo. This one comes from the incumbent SBY who doesn't want the economy be dominated by global as well as black-haired capitalists.

What the hell does he mean by black-haired capitalist?

He would have been in better position if he said that he denounced the capitalists who asked for government protection to prevent market competition get into their way and punish their inefficiency. But calling these crooks black-haired capitalists doesn't help --if not puts him in, alas, the same league as his opponents in term of economic literacy.
