    Hair discrimination?

    https://news.yahoo.com/california-ou...074244301.html

    California has become the first US state to make race-related hair discrimination illegal.

    Governor Gavin Newsom signed the ‘CROWN Act' into law on Wednesday, prohibiting employers and schools from enforcing hair-grooming policies that restrict natural hairstyles such as Afros and protective styles.

    "The CROWN Act is redefining the cultural norms of 'professional images' for all people," said Senator Holly J. Mitchell, who first introduced the bill, ushering it through the California Senate in April and the California Assembly in June.

    The bill was strongly supported by the CROWN Coalition, an alliance made up of the National Urban League, Western Center on Law & Poverty, Color Of Change, and the Unilever-owned beauty giant Dove. The acronym stands for ‘Creating a Respectful and Open World for Natural Hair.' The coalition is also supporting similar bills in New York and New Jersey.




    Evidently this is enough of a thing that California felt compelled to pass a law.

    I would never discriminate against anybody with any type of hairstyle.

    There is only one kind of freedom and that's individual liberty. Our lives come from our creator

    Yes as ridiculous as those hairstyles may be, I'll still allow them.

    What if my hairstyle consists of my own $#@! smeared over my head? Would I still be allowed? Where is the line? Is there a line?

    Fine with me. I'll even plug my nose with a clothespin so I don't have to smell it.
