you're just not identifying your own racism.

explain why any hairstyle that's as profoundly bound to black and african culture as cornrows (a style dating back as far as 3000bc in the horn and west coasts of africa) is "unprofessional"

many of these standards of approval for sake of "professionalism" are just thinly cloaked racism.

it's a very standard hairstyle for black and african people. there's nothing "unprofesional" about it.

to say otherwise, let alone associating it with looking like a "thug," is absolutely racist.
