Smh at the racist comments saying that things like this make people not want to hire minorities, that she looks like an African warrior and that she needed to be fired because the dress code needs to be enforced.

I ain't mad.  She's about to collect a nice paycheck.   If I ever work for another big company, I'm going to do the same thing and hope they have the courage to run that game on me.

This is the corporate world many don't see. When you walk into work with natural hair, they look at you as though you have a horn. If you look at black reporters/ newscasters, they have the same hairstyle (just like their white counterparts). This is the norm. You will be less likely to be hired if you show any sign of culture other what white.
 
Black folks have been changing who were are for years. White folks are afraid and intimidated when we show who we really are. We may luck up and find some who are not thrown off by what us being us, however that is not the norm. It is as though in order to be seen as intelligent and able to do a job, we have to change to get ahead.
 
Don't tell me that we don't have a "white voice" when they are around.  
 
We should not have to change anything, however in this day and age, if you want to work and live amongst other cultures, you are guided to assimilate. When you don't, you are treated like this.

The problem is they can't stand it when we have pride in our culture and heritage, they feel like that is a luxury reserved for them.

I recently had a discussion with a bunch of clueless white males.  They won't get it, but I closed my argument by stating, if they like to travel, there is NEVER a time when they will EVER think or have their friends and loved ones ask them, "Do they like white people over there?"  The thought never occurs to them.  When they pick up and move, among the first things they think about is NEVER, "where will I get my hair done?  Will they have [insert ethnic group here] food there?"  In corporate America, they will NEVER have to physically alter themselves to make their peers more comfortable with them.  WE DO.

I sat here and tried to think about white culture...then I laughed. There is no such thing. There whole existence is a compilation of others'.

Yt's are upset because they have no culture and no identity. They would kill to walk around in ethnocentric garb without looking like a damn fool. They're upset because we have something they never had and never will have.

She'll walk away with a nice payout.
