    Nice to see you got there by your fourth post. It's almost as if you read what I OPed but replied to someone else. (If I've lost you - you twice quoted me - your first and 3rd post I believe)

    I stated in the OP - "The report doesn't ever say male black policemen are allowed cornrow hairstyles - just black female officers - so there is a small doubt."

    To me this cornrow thing is obviously racism. I' seeing reports where dozens of black male officers are allowed to have cornrows.

    I don't use the BS term "reverse racism", because racism doesn't have a preset direction.
    Friar mate to be serious, if black officers are allowed to wear the hair style in question, then I agree with you.

    Its a good job Donald Trump is not a cop

    I didn't see any reports about dozens of black male officers, only dozens of black officers.

    Re: White Philly officer told to get rid of cornrows

    Police spokesman says black cop ordered to cut off cornrows in the past. Where's the racism?


    White Philly officer told to get rid of cornrows

    AP
    Published: Sep 21, 2009


    (snip...)

    Police spokesman Lt. Frank Vanore says Strain's boss told the officer to cut his hair to look more "professional."

    Vanore says officers' hats must fit "in a military manner" over their hair, and that Strain's hat did not. Strain got a haircut; he declined comment to the paper.

    Vanore recalled only one black officer with braids in the past several years. He says that officer also was told to get a haircut.

    I may have read it wrong, but in my world, Sexism and racism are equally bad.

    They've already admitted to the sexism.

    Sorry, military and para-military and just regular, organizations have different hair regulations for men and women. Expecting a woman to conform to male norms is what is sexist.

    I never said they should conform to male norms. I do believe they should have the same standards. Such as the hat fitting a certain way, or looking professional.

    A style of haircut like cornrows doesn't magically become more professional looking or allow a hat to be worn a specific way if it's situated above a set of tits.

    So ...

    Males of all races are told to get the haircut? No racism here folks.

    Yes, it does. Just as in the military tied up hair for women is acceptable for women, but not for men. And, tits have nothing to do with it. A woman with no tits (mastectomy or otherwise) still adheres to the standard for women and not for men.

    Sexism is no better than racism.

    It makes NO difference what sex the other corn-rowed officers are.
