Black Money Business Jobs : Employers Can Refuse To Hire A Person With Dreadlocks, Court Says


Aug 28, 2015
Black people continue to get cut out of the workforce for superficial reasons.


Refusing to hire someone because of their dreadlocks is legal, according to a ruling from the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, reports NBC News.

The ruling came after a lawsuit was filed by Equal Employment Opportunity Commission against Catastrophe Management Solutions in Mobile, Alabama.

The EEOC was working on behalf of Chastity Jones, whose job offer was rescinded by Catastrophe Management Solutions because of her dreadlocks. According to the case file, the human resources manager, Jeannie Wilson, addressed Jones’ dreadlocks in a private hiring meeting, writes the television news outlet.

This law is discriminatory. I say that they could target all people with messy hair instead of just AA people. BTW, My son and I have dreads and have had no problem getting jobs.

ALL laws IMHO are designed to keep the masses divided.

The only way to circumvent all the BS imo is to be single minded.

Back when my Grandparents arrived in England from Jamaica in the late 40s they were met with 'NO BLACKS, DOGS OR IRISH'.

Asians were also considered Blacks back then btw.

The Asians however set about creating their own employment by setting up their own businesses supplying their own.

What we see to-day in England is the natural outcome/progression of that.

When I see an Asian youth pushing the latest Mercedes I immediately think OLD MONEY.

I'm Indo-Jamaican btw.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
