My employer, who is an African American woman, called me today offering me a position as a Banquet server at a hotel. It pays more and offers more hours… Possibly
She also said, “Those pigtails that you wore yesterday won’t be appropriate. We sent a (black male) with dreads and the hotel emailed us back with complaints about his appearance. Those braids you had in were appropriate. (photo below)
I am offended. I always look, dress and behave professionally!!!! I don’t see how one hairstyle vs the next disqualifies me…. PLEASE EXPLAIN……….. Ugh, being black, educated and NATURALLY ME, is so hard in America….
