discrimination based on hairstyle

Original Article

Montgomery County is now the first county in the nation to ban discrimination based on hairstyle. Earlier this week, the council passed the measure unanimously. The CROWN Act – which has been passed in California and New York – gives residents a legal recourse if their hairstyle impacts their employment status, or if they’re denied service because of it. Montgomery County Council President Nancy Navarro said the CROWN Act “seeks to advance racial equity” by defining Protected Hairstyles.

Comments:

Montgomery County lets criminal illegals victimize citizens, but protects hairstyles. You have to set priorities, after all.

So when the have nasty, greasy, disgusting hair that looks horrible, you need to keep them in their public service jobs, even if it drives away customers. Dreadlocks on any person look really disgusting to me, as an example. I can't remember where I read about the right to harm your employer's business in the Constitution.

If someone applies for a job, and has a hairdo like Radaghast The Brown (from the LOTR stories, the Hobbit, complete with a bird's nest!) I can't imagine being seriously considered for the position. All the rejecttion has to say is that they've decided to pursue candidates with more appropriate experience.

Ok so when someone who is otherwise not a viable candidate happens to be sporting some radical bizarre hairdo they get to sue based on the claim that the hair was the issue. We'll have people convicted of a crime based on reading their minds.

Our indiscriminate acceptance and application of anti-discrimination principles will eventually spread to an effort to outlaw discrimination on the basis of competence. So employers will be obligated to offer jobs to applicants whether the latter are qualified or not.

Well, of course. Hiring people based on competence, experience and qualifications is discrimination. Hiring people based on appearance is certainly discrimination and is judgemental. A greater injustice than discrimination, in my opinion, is telling owners of private businesses how to run their business and who they may or may not hire. The government now tells us who we must do business with and who we must associate with, and that is counter to all of our liberties.

I’m not hiring someone with a blue mohawk and I don’t care what their qualifications are. That is not the image we want to show our customers. So sue me.

Total BS. The people you put on the front lines of your business project the image of the entire business. Cherry red dreadlocks, visible tattoos, obesity, all of it. I reserve the right to hire the best available and if the rejects want to file a lawsuit, go for it. I can hire better lawyers than they can.

Of course, 1-in-5 managers won't hire pro-Trump workers, but they can continue that discriminating and become a shining example for us all.

Generally speaking, people with outlandish hairdos are pretty much screwed up to begin with and that will show in their previous employment and/or lack of basic competence. A good HR manager will always have better-qualified applicants he can point to that he hired over the guy with greasy dreds down to his shoulders if the dred guy sues.

This sounds like every business needs a good employee handbook with a carefully worded dress code and hygiene standards.

I don't think dreadlocks can be washed. Girl on TV once said, when hers were cut off and the remaining hair washed, that this was the first time in years her hair had been washed. That's just nasty on any job.

Fearing a repeat of the deadly violence that engulfed Charlottesville more than two years ago, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam plans to declare a temporary emergency Wednesday banning all weapons, including guns, from Capitol Square ahead of a massive rally planned next week over gun rights. That's according to two state officials who were briefed on the plans but not authorized to speak publicly about them. The governor, a Democrat, plans to announce the plans at a news conference Wednesday afternoon because of credible threats of potential violence and extremism, one official said.

Fox Business host Stuart Varney revealed his 2020 predictions as the country gears up for a heated election year. "I think this is a split party, I think Bloomberg is the nominee," Varney said Tuesday about the Democrats, "and I think Trump wins big time in November." "Think about what's happening to the Democrat party," said Varney. "You've got two candidates for the presidency who are socialists and along comes this man who is ... the 11th richest person in the world ... so you've got the socialists, going up against the billionaires. That is a totally divided party."

The jury just rendered its verdict on punitive damages in the Gibson’s Bakery v. Oberlin College case. Daniel McGraw, our reporter in the courtroom, reports that in addition to the $11.2 million compensatory damages awarded last Friday, the jury awarded a total of $22 million. That brings the total damages to $33 million. We will have the breakdown soon. The jury also awarded attorney’s fees, to be determined by the judge. In closing argument, Gibson’s lawyer Lee Plakas argued: “Why is the country watching you. Because the country agrees that what happened to the Gibsons should not happen to anyone, but could happen to everyone.”

The Jury in the Gibson’s Bakery v. Oberlin College case has reached a verdict. According to our reporter in the Courtroom, the jury awarded $11 million. Here are the details: Allyn W. Gibson awarded $5.8 million, David Gibson #3 million, Gibson Bros. $2,274,500. Next Tuesday there will be a separate punitive damages which could be a double award (meaning tripling the $11 million to $33 million). According to Dan, Meredith Raimondo was held liable on the libel but not the other counts. We are still sorting out what that means in terms of damages against her.

Canada's Trudeau: Iran plane victims would

OTTAWA - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Monday that the victims of the Ukrainian airliner shot down in Iran would still be alive if the recent escalation of tensions in the region had not happened, according to a transcript of an interview with Global News TV. The U.S. killing of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad in a Jan. 3 drone strike prompted Iran to launch a missile attack on Iraqi bases housing U.S. troops on Jan. 8, hours before the passenger jet was shot down. All 176 aboard were killed, including 57 Canadians. "I think if there were

Q and the ever-growing worldwide movement it’s inspired have been the objects of fascination, mockery and hatred, but of surprisingly little serious analysis. Q first appeared in October 2017 on an anonymous online forum called 4Chan, posting messages that implied top-clearance knowledge of upcoming events. More than 3,000 messages later, Q has created a disturbing, multi-faceted portrait of a global crime syndicate that operates with impunity.

WASHINGTON — Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Wednesday that two House chairmen who led President Donald Trump's impeachment inquiry will be among the House prosecutors for Trump's Senate trial. They are Democrats Rep. Adam Schiff, chair of the Intelligence Committee, and Rep. Jerry Nadler, chair of the Judiciary Committee. Trump was impeached by the Democratic-led House last month on charges of abuse of power over his pressure on Ukraine to investigate Democratic rival Joe Biden as Trump withheld aid from the country. He was also charged with obstructing Congress’ ensuing probe.
