I hate hate hate when white people bring up the comparison of mohawks or mullets also being unprofessional. Firstly, you hair did not naturally form into that damn mohawk/mullet. You deliberately did that to yourself.
That woman doesn't look like she just rolled out of bed with her hair like that. She probably plats/ties it at night and fluffs in the morning, which to me is the equivalent of non-black women combing their hair.
Only one is seen as a problem, though.
eta: or when they bring up men not being able to have very long hair in the workplace. The fact of the matter is if natural black hair is longer than 1/2 and inch, it becomes a problem. It will always be a problem. These are racist policies that even black people, unfortunately, coonishly subscribe to.
