    Is short hair racist? ACLU seems to think so

    This is so unbelievable that I had to post it

    Is short hair racist? The ACLU seems to think so.

    A "Six Flags" theme park in Maryland wants all of its staff (black and white) to have unobtrusive haircuts so that people can concentrate on the entertainment characters portrayed rather than on the particular workers behind the characters.

    Some black employees, however, like to wear large hairstyles and the ACLU thinks they should be allowed to. They say:

    "This is culturally very, very insensitive and possibly discrimination" and they say that large hairstyles are "The natural style of the hair" for Africans.

    Details here. Odd that blacks in South Africa normally wear their hair very short! But the ACLU is too insensitive to take a serious interest in cross-cultural differences, of course.

    I think that "within reason" an employer should be able to set grooming standards.

    My past experience since getting out of the military has been that the only exceptions were usually for religious reasons.
