One comment on “I May Not Be My Hair, But My Hair Has History

  1. Thank you for breaking that down Sonya. This concept of dreadlocks in the workplace have been an ongoing battle for African Americans for awhile. I remember my mom telling our friends and family to be mindful of your hairstyles in the workplace because some “people” view professionalism as looking like “them.” I think this act proves her point. I wasn’t aware of the difference or that there was a difference between disperate discrimination & disperate impact act. If I understand it correctly, I feel like that’s a “convenient loophole. ” Like you said… Hope we’ll get it right next time.
