    I say everyone gets the military treatment and gets all hair removed as part of the Job interview.

    Where's "here"? I was in corporate America for a long time, working for some very large corporations in very conservative businesses, and non-"Europeanized" hair was never a problem, even if exaggerated, over-the-top styles were . . . and that was true no matter the race.

    Well, I think if you own a business you are free to decide who to hire. So if you don't like someone's hair I'm fine with you not hiring them. But white people, for the most part, don't care how black women wear their hair. Except for dreads maybe. Because, let's face it, dreads are dirty and gross. But that would apply to white dudes with dreads, too.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    What does being white or black have to do with liking or not liking someones hairdo?

    Yes, especially if they're blond, because it's even more obviously dirty and gross.
