Six Flags Theme Parks: good enough to take our money but not our employ.

Thanks so much for helping to get the word out. Still there is so much more that we need to do and a short bit of time to make a valued impact. Summer is rapidly approaching and that means millions of students and families looking for something to do this summer. Let us help redirect our massive spending potential away from Six Flags until they make a change in the way they view our youth. Because it is the very same youth, dreadlocks or not, who we push to look for summer employment especially in a depressed economy, that Six Flags won't even interview.

So if you are a beautician, barber or salon and barbershop owner or if you know one, please start talking about this in the environment that will properly engage the fullness of the debate. We support the businesses that do not disenfranchise us. Point blank period.

Talk about this at church and at work. If your child doesn't have dreadlocks but a friend of theirs does, then it is relevant to you still.

I heard about this about a week ago. A member posted about not being able to get a job there. I found the article online and said my peace. Hopefully if enough people speak out, they'll get a clue

That's awesome. Congrats. My mom would never do something like that. I've had them for an age, now and she still thinks it's immature of me to wear them

This case is from 2 years ago! Why is everyone just talking about it now??? How about boycotting Six Flags because they have the WORST safety record of an amusement park chain in the world?!

That and the fact that they just banned a guy from all of their rides because he has no hands. They say it's a saftey hazard. Who rides a roller coaster and holds on anyway?
