If I was not black and I had naturally curly hair, would you question whether my naturally curly hair would be appropriate for the workplace? Would you question whether my hair texture would hinder my career?
If I was qualified for a job, but the company didn't want to hire me because of my hair texture, wouldn't I want to know this before accepting the job? If so, why would I want to disguise my texture to get the job and then reveal my true identity afterwards? Why would I fear showing them what God has creatively designed?
