California is poised to become the first state to pass a law banning workplace discrimination against black people for wearing natural hair styles.

The bill dubbed the CROWN Act (Create a Respectful and Open Workplace for Natural Hair) passed California's Assembly on Thursday with a vote of 69-0.

The bill previously passed California's state Senate in April, and now awaits signature from Governor Gavin Newsom, a Democrat.

The new law would prohibit employers from firing or punishing employees for wearing 'protective hairstyles' such as 'braids, locks, and twists.'

Dreadlocks are "natural" ?

Sorta:

Quote
Because hair naturally becomes matted when it isn't styled or combed, prehistoric humans must have worn their hair in a style similar to dreadlocks, until they invented combs and other utensils. Dreadlocks have been discovered on mummies in Peru, dating back to sometime between A.D. 200 and A.D. 800, and Aztec priests dating back to the 14th and 15th centuries traditionally wore their hair in matted locks.

Often, dreadlocks become a symbol of religious devotion, an ascetic's vow not to alter God's creation through grooming. In Ethiopia, priests in Christian Coptic churches have worn dreadlocks for hundreds of years. In India, the "sadhu" sect of Hinduism wears matted locks in tribute to the long-haired deity Shiva. "Rasta-Buddhists" in Japan, members of the black Muslim Baye Fall sect of Senegal, Maori in New Zealand, and tribes in Namibia and Angola all wear dreadlocks [source: Mastalia]....

Well ya know they are just throwing a meaningless bone to Blacks in the belief that it will keep the  Blacks from realizing that the democrats have replaced them with the more numerous Hispanic illegal vote.......................and the sad thing is the Blacks will still blindly vote for the party of Jim Crow and the KKK.

They will probably ban Fro picks larger than 6 inches.

Have ya ever seen pics of Africans? Many wear their hair in a buzz cut or shaved, I assume for convenience, the heat, bugs and pests, and so on.

California Poised to Become First US State to Ban Natural Hair Discrimination
By Isabel van Brugen
July 1, 2019 Updated: July 1, 2019

A bill to ban the discrimination of natural hairstyles was passed in California last week, making it the first state in the United States poised to make the change.

In a unanimous vote, the new bill was passed 69 to 0 by California’s state assembly on June 27, reported ABC News.

It came two months after the California Senate’s approval of an act led by State Sen. Holly Mitchell, which bans discrimination against people with natural hairstyles in the workplace—the CROWN Act (Create a Respectful and Open Workplace for Natural Hair).

This is long overdue.  But they should ban discrimination against long noses, short feet, big ears, and big guts.  All bodily discrimination should be addressed.  And models - models bring so much shame to people like me they should be banned. :whistle:

Are we talking literal "natural hair" or the social-justice buzzword "natural hair" that only black people ever have? My bets would be on the latter.

Why are black people being singled out?  Shouldn't 'natural hair' protection apply to all?

California politicians doing the really important work while the CA middle class slowly strangles to death.

Wildfires,  soaring housing costs,  a disappearing middle class,  homeless crapping in the streets,  violent crime by illegal aliens,  and jobs and residents fleeing in droves.

California may have problems,  but thank God it's been made safe for dreadlocks.

This sounds like an asinine law....
It is just that, asinine. If they were serious about what they are calling 'natural hair' then it would apply to all people of all races. This is a subterfuge law. That is, it is a law which claims to ban one thing but is really about something completely different.

This law has two goals. The first goal is to outlaw any kind of standard workplace dress code as they would apply specifically and only to Black people. The second goal is to give specifically and only Black people a new and amorphous claim to sue their employers. Employers will now be forced to prove that they did not fire them for their hair style. Specifically and only Black people can now grow their hair out to some weird absurd extent and style, regardless of if it is a defined danger in their work environment or if the person is publically representing the company. They win either way.

If they grow out hair to the point that they can no longer wear a hardhat or other protective gear and they get injured, that is an instant lawsuit. However, if they are fired or transferred because they cannot meet the requirements of the job (i.e., wear protective gear or to present a dignified public appearance) they can say they were fired for their 'natural hair'.

In the Navy, beards and long hair were banned because we could not fit a helmet, gas mask, scuba, rebreathers, and other gear. If you can't wear the gear, you can't do the job. If you can't do the job, you can't be in the deployed Navy in the field. No discrimination. Just simple fact. However, I doubt that some crazy wacko Liberal California judge or jury will give a single damn about rational facts.

The law has the added benefit that it further divides and separates Black people as being unique and not subject to the rules and laws that every other race has to abide by. The more Liberals can separate and divide Blacks and Hispanics as being 'special' and apart from all other races, the more they further their goal of total and complete racial segregation.

Who knew "the South will rise again" was a real thing? And that it would be the hippy Liberals who do it?
