Life Issues Facing Dreads
i guess it wasn't a quick question sorry guys
Quick question, has anyone ever been denied a job position or had an employer deny you because you had dreads? And are there laws against this sort of discrimination in the professional world?
It's probably a stupid question but I'm just curious to know about anyone's experiences because I'm a college student and I'm probably going to get a white collar job; in so saying, how would you convince an employer that your keeping your dreads doesn't make you look unprofessional?
I know that you can only make so many people understand in this world we live in, but any suggestions and/or personal accounts would be appreciated.
Seeing as this is a dreadlock forum yall probably know what im going to ask but bare with me. You see, all my life i've lived under the limited personified perceptions of my parents and was forced to adjust my looks according to societal ordeals..I'm originally from nigeria but i really see myself as a human being..anyways to cut the long story short,i just need a change better yet a break from the expectations of everyone in this industrial world..i just wanna be free..so hopefully, letting my hair do what it wants is the first step..i already have s medium sized fro and everyone's already criticizing me..but i really don't give a hoot..ther, im done ranting lol
