    So I take it that you, jackalope, believe that having slaves was perfectly okay, moral, and not racism in any way up until such a point that it was made legal? Cause I mean, courts had no issue with it till that point, so naturally it couldn't have been racism.

    Yes, the courts do so determine.
    And, no, re: slaves. You'd be wrong, and btw, nice lame strawman there, Zyph.

    Being concerned with an officer's hair is none of their business.
    But, at all times, the public servants must listen to their "superiors", the general public.
    "Listen" means take under advisement, not necessarily obey.
    I think you are missing the point; as an officer of the law, individuals also must garner the respect of those they are attempting to enforce the law with, thus a professional appearance is mandatory, not to mention proper attire and a badge to prove they are indeed who they say they are.

    The same thing applies to discipline and why the military has such rules.

    Doesn't get you anywhere but sexism, which won't be upheld when the "community norms" angle comes into play.

    Re: White Philly officer told to get rid of cornrows

    If the ban is only for White Cornrows then it is racist. If the ban is that male officers cannot have cornrows then it probably a common sense rule just as if there was a rule against males wearing skirts or dresses.

    ps as for your other question yes there most likley is more to this than what we have seen thus far.
    I do not recall the Viet Cong asking me if I was a natural born or Naturalized American before they shot at me, they just shot at all of us f107HyperSabr

    Interviewed by the Daily News, Vanore said he couldn't explain why black officers with cornrows weren't ordered to get haircuts unless they're women. The policy for female officers is slightly more permissive, he said.

    are we finished here? denial can be treated, you know.
