He suggested that I get a weave!!!!

Ok, so I took my twists down lastnight to rock a twist-out for work.. didn't turn out so hot.. so I ended up throwing a headband on!

I admit that my hair still looked alittle wild (it was a flopped back fro)... but I got pissed when my (blk) superintendant suggested that I get a weave, so that my hair was more in place.. I WEAR A PHUCKIN BUN EVERYDAY.... I told him that I'm not getting a damn weave, and that my hair IS in place every other day! He said that when you have as much hair as I do, it would be best to get a weave so I didnt have to deal with it! GEE, thanks for telling me how hard dealing with MY hair can be, u bald schmuck!!

What made matters worse.. is the fact that he mentions this in front of our closet racist! You know the guy... "My best friend is blk.." But in his case, "My moms best friend is blk, and she would kill me if I made a neg. comment about them.. and I grew up with her son!!"

Anyway. I joked that both of them rather I had a relaxer, so I looked more like them... As I pointed to the white guy! [laughs] He just said I'm light skinned, but not light enough to pass... ... I'll pass on that..

He was way out of line, especially as he's your manager. And to say it in front of someone else. Stupid jerk.

That bald guy is way out of line and does not recognize real beauty when it is in his face. Girl, keep your head up and do not worry about him. He is stupid!

Wow is your darker skin "too ethnic" for him too? I have no words. I'm glad you were able to keep your cool for the most part.

Every time I see this title I assume it must be your hair stylist. It's your freakin' BALD boss! WTF

Oh he has some f-n nerve. I would have told him since he wanted me to get a weave so badly, how about he pay for it, and pay for me to get it kept up every other week or so for as long as I keep it in. People always have something to say about how you should be doing something, but never want to front the money to do so. Like you actually solicited his advice, anyway. LOL!

That would have shut his ignorant a-s up. Stupid people....I swear.
A wonderful mix of coils, curls, corkscrews, and kinks.

It stinks working with people who make personal comments. Is he even allowed to do so under the company rules? Jerk.
If he keeps on making personal comments about your appearance, I'm thinking HR violation.
