California poised to ban hairstyle discrimination
Andrew MalcolmPosted at 10:01 am on June 28, 2019
This is California, remember. The Golden state is perched to become the first in the nation to ban discrimination based on unique hairstyles, mainly targeting blacks.
The measure, which has passed both chambers of the state legislature, could be signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom as soon as next week.
It’s aimed at schools and workplaces where blacks say they have been pressured to abandon hairstyles traditionally a part of their culture and have been denied jobs and advancement when they did not adopt more Eurocentric styles of personal grooming.
The bill, if signed, would prohibit enforcement of personal grooming policies affecting disproportionately those of color, especially blacks. This includes prohibitions on certain hairstyles, such as braids, twists, Afros, cornrows and dreadlocks.
The bill’s sponsor, LA Democrat Sen. Holly Mitchell claims that it would encourage schools and businesses to create grooming policies “that will foster inclusion and diversity.”
She said she had heard “far too many reports of black children humiliated and sent home from school because their natural hair was deemed unruly or a distraction to others.”
LIBERTY HAS NO EXPIRATION DATEDemocrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
