Whatever!! It is the univerity's job to educate people and not to tell them how to wear their hair so if the style is not disruptive to the learning environment, it is none of their business (pun intended). They may suggest someone cut their locs but to require it is stupid. Speaking of stupid that African American history analogy was beyond beyond. He sounds like an educated fool. I don't know too many AA people who haven't had cornrows at some point in their life. Another thing we may be AA but our "history" didn't just start once we stepped off the boat. Harriet Tubman and Sojoyner Truth didnt wear a relaxer so maybe they should ban that too.

This was an issue with the school years ago as well. Was it not passed and then they decided to bring it up again?

I know this won't be popular, but I have never seen a Mohawk, blue hair, or side buzz cut in the boardroom. Their goal is to get the graduates into corporate America. The styles mentioned above aren't considered corporate and neither are locs or cornrows. That is not the fault of these schools.

So is an afro okay? I don't recall that being unAfrican American. They should be ashamed. The dean of the SOB should be fired for not changing the policy sooner. Its not apart of African American History?
MLK was not a business major & neither was Dr. C.R. Drew. So why reach for those names to make your point. They were not getting jobs in corporate America from 2001 to 2012. Attitudes have changed on this. The military needs to fix their policy on this too.

Acclaimed author & journalist Toure is working in corporate America these days maybe he should offer a commentary since he doesn't rock the all African American fade.

Why would we want to work for someone who would judge us by our hairstyle & not our resume?

This is not how you get African Americans into the boardroom. This is subscribing to the idea that we are not qualified due to our hairstyles. Its self hate & the acceptance of stereotypes in
a convoluted nutshell.

I don't think Morehouse has this policy on hair (they have a policy against cross dressing). They should be the school setting the standard since they are graduating successful young men & they must be getting jobs. I've been to a graduation & they don't all have one hairstyle.

Also locs are not the same as blue hair & Mohawks. It takes years to grow locs. Many men wear them well. LZ Granderson, AJ, there's another man in the media who has locs on CNN.

I'm probably going to get backlash for this but oh well....when I was interviewing for a new assistant, hair was big for me. I make no secret a professional understated appearance is important.
Those rooster hairstyles with red's, blues and such; half/side shaved; picasso scene or outlandish designs cut into a man's head; super high spikes....are all deal breakers for me.

I don't have an issue with afros, cornrows, dreds but those are "tame" in comparison to some of the hair styles I see while riding the train.

I agree CK. I don't think anyone should be rocking huge, highly colored, half shaved heads with gang signs shaved into the side. I put my own hair back into 2 low profile flat twists for interviews.

Morehouse Dress Code

Sienna, I respectfully disagree. They are all hairstyles. I believe what the schools are trying to convey is to get your foot in the door and then you can work from the inside to change minds and hearts. Why give yourself a disadvantage over a hairstyle?

The article below discusses this subject very well.

Dreadlocks in Corporate America, is it acceptable

For you locs are no big deal. There are those who see huge highly colored half shaved heads and locs in the same vein.

I am not one of those people however.

The first link didn't work. I know Morehouse has a serious dress code policy but they have men on their campus with locs. They also revamped their policy in 2009.

They are all hairstyles yes, but there's a difference in degree of hairstyles. Its like crime, lol, there are misdemeanors & felonies.

I will not compromise who I am or scam hr managers by taming my hair for an interview & having them act crazy later on. That shows a major lack of integrity. Many Muslim women have this problem when we cover our heads. Folks shouldn't have to be coaxed or their hearts & minds changed. This is a discrimination problem. We are holding ourselves back with policies like this.

Also hiring managers at headquarters in America's major cities & urban areas are not strangers to variety & diversity.

It amazes me how school administrators try and speak for all of corporate america. They talk to two companies and run with it but legally no company will put it in writing so what companies are still admitting this??
I've worked and hired in the private sector for years, on Wall Street, for fortune 500 companies and locs, braids aren't as hindering as schools make them out to be. Now maybe in the healthcare field, maybe, but finance, judicial and private risk...not so much. It makes no sense.

Sienna, in some people's eyes misdemeanor or felony doesn't matter. It says you committed a crime. Same difference to them.

In a previous post you said you put your hair in back in low profile flat twists for interviews. You said that in response to CK having an interviewee coming in with multi-colored hair, sky high hair. You want to make sure your hairstyle is not obtrusive, no? In your eyes the comparison may not be the same, but for some it is.

While the hiring managers may not be strangers to diversity or variety, there is a limit and it depends on the position.

I only see it as discrimination if certain other non traditional hairstyles for allowed and those are not.

FAMU SBI (School of Business and Industry) no longer has a policy about hair styles banning locs. They do however highly discourage braids on male students. When I roamed the hill circa 1999-2002 there were plenty of male SBI students with locs, fros, such. But you would be hard presses to find a dude rocking some cornrows with his suit.
