What if the hair constitutes a safety hazard and the employee refuses to wear it under a hat, etc.?

Democrats just love love love them some "discrimination"! They love love love it so much they have to keep inventing new kinds, so that "discrimination" will never go out of style. What would the Democrat party do without "discrimination" to save people from?

NYC has one too. There is nothing natural about braiding or twisting, and it puts tremendous stress on hair and scalp. And there is nothing AA about dyeing brown or black hair blonde. Is it too much to ask people who are in the workforce to have a neat, professional appearance and demeanor? I guess so.

This isn’t about the hair. This is about the skin. California, ever willing to trample more individual rights in favor of the collective, has seen fit to add another arrow to the racism quiver.

I would guess many employers will get around it by not hiring them in the first place. I think it's a matter of safety, and cleanliness. I can't imagine what might be growing in that Hair! Corporations who have Sales Reps, or department Heads who travel to Vendors or go to meetings are not going to go with that Rule. GM or Ford or any organization who want their Reps to be clean shaven, in Suit and Ties, and yes, short hair cuts are not going to send a person out that has Dreds or something similar. Not going to happen! I know a young College Grad, with a Masters who is married and a father who can't move up the Ladder because he doesn't present himself well at interviews. He and his wife don't believe in pressed clothes, they wear it the way it comes out of the dryer. He has huge, wild, bushy hair and full Beard. He's very smart, but companies are going to hire the guy who has the same Resume, but LOOKS like a Businessman. So far employers are not forced to hire the guy who looks like a Hippie! Wonder when they will rule he is being discriminated against!!

Poster #1 asks the question of the day. Does this bill give exemptions for possible safety hazards from having such extravagant hair? Unless it can be worn under a safety hat of some kind, then the hair needs reasonable restrictions for safety. Now if it is an office, then as long as the hair is clean, I can see no problems with the braids. I think some of the creative braids are quite attractive actually. Would rather see the control of braids than the flyaway uncontrolled Afro. To some who wonder what is natural about them, what is natural about the French Twist, a chignon, ponytails, a long braid or other hair stules we see on white women? What is natural about that? The biggest problem these folks have who do the tight braids is that they do indeed go bald in a big way on the front part of their head. Remember Melissa Harris Perry and her weekend show? She went bald at least 2-3 inches on the front of her head. So much so she was wearing wigs towards the end of her show.

Next up will be tattoos, since 90% of millennials have them. We quit going to a local restaurant because one of the waiters had grotesque tats all over his arms and many of the waitresses as well. It's unappetizing. The hair thing is just as bad. I don't care if it's white boys or blacks, those dredlocks always look filthy dirty, like carpet in a rat infested single-wide trailer house.

An interesting thing happened in some Never Trump circles after the Democratic primary debates ended last Thursday night. While it won’t change the calculus of those we are about to discuss, it at least has them finally admitting the imperfect reality that drove the decision of many Trump voters in 2016.To preface, we need to establish exactly what group of Never Trump figures we are talking about here.There was a dramatic split in the Never Trump movement before the 2018 mid-term elections. While some Never Trump members realized that supporting Democrats to flex their opposition to Trump was a foolhardy move that did nothing to move the ball forward,

Paul has been on top of the apparent Kamala Harris fraud. Harris, attacking Joe Biden for having collaborated with segregationist Democrats in the Senate to oppose school busing, claimed that she was bused as a kid, in Berkeley, and it did her a world of good. (Snip) Given the demography and geography of Berkeley at the time–she was 10 years old in 1974–it seems highly unlikely that Harris, the daughter of two PhDs, one from India and one from Jamaica, was bused into a white school so she could escape the ghetto and mix with the children of educated parents.

Elizabeth Warren is beginning to solidify herself as a top-tier candidate in the Democrat primary. She has been forced to backtrack on her decades-long claims of being a woman of color, but Harvard still has not done the same. Why has Harvard not set the record straight? In 1993, Harvard Law School offered Warren a highly coveted tenured professor job. The record is clear as to how she obtained the offer -- Harvard had been the subject of a discrimination lawsuit at the time regarding its hiring practices, and the school was openly trying to hire women and people of color at its law school. Warren did not begin her job

This particular sufferer just happens to be older. Jeff Flake is a younger politician who manifested horrible TDS symptoms as he was unceremoniously run out of office for utterly failing his constituents. Rather than own up to his inability to hold on to his core support, he decided to mask electoral betrayal by complaining about President Trump 24/7 just so the mainstream media would put a band-aid on his political wounds.
