Pubic hair above the waist? Okay, then using even that standard, wouldn't you say the photo of the weather lady is cute? She keeps it neatly cropped, not in the form of a "bush."

I'm just gonna repost this message..

Smh the white trash brigade in here already. We all know you can't be fcking your cousins and animals 24/7 (the animals need a break). But atleast try find out what's up with your own people instead of hanging around us when you ain't getting down with your child porn and house pets.. We know you people are boring, lifeless and flavorless, but it can't be that bad, can it?

It's not my fault nighur bitches are barely distinguishable from the males (except for the more masculine build).
The grotesque hair only furthers the impression. If nighur males want their hogs to stop embarrassing the nighur species, maybe they should stop fxcking each other up the ass all the time and take a moment to step up and run their own "famblies".
Obviously, the reason nighur hogs are masculine, aggressive and controlling is because nighur males are incapable of those traits.
Inbred, I didn't post it for your suicidal no life having black folks attention seeking cracka azz. The only reason black women seem masculine to you pu$$i azz crackas who got the biggest balls only when you're behind a keyboard or backed up with a battalion of your fellow inbred animal raping crackas behind white sheets like you about to gang up to lynch a teen (like you animals usually do, because you're too much of a pu$$i to go solo) is because you're the biggest bytch made oestrogen filled batty bois.
You reek of broken dreams and a failed life. No wonder your ho azz is whoring for attention like the bytch you were born to be.

Who said I was deluded by multiculturalism? Actually, there are many White people who consider certain Black women to be cute. It doesn't mean they want to date them or anything.

And why are you picking on her when she is one of the few BP trying to make a difference, and in ways that don't encroach on WP? She is not the word you used. Someone who is the N-word wouldn't be telling you the weather. They would be robbing you, selling drugs, beating others up for kicks, killing each other, or lying drunk in an alley. She doesn't do any of that, and neither do most Black people.

It seems that men as a whole in America have lost their way. White men have become ineffectual and cowards, and will bend over backwards to hurt their own to appease their political enemies. Black men are also impacted, just that they see violence and ignoring the rights and wishes of others. The latter way is more damaging to society as a whole, but neither is good. Surely there has to be a way to be in the middle somewhere without being either cowardly or militant.

Actually, most don't look that masculine when you judge them by their own standards. Surely, if nature made women of a particular race more masculine, the men would have also evolved their ability to make gender determination.

And men of all races would do best to avoid sodomizing other men, but if that is the prerogative, who's say is it to stop them?

As for your final analysis, no, the reason some BW act more masculine is out of the need to verbally and physically defend themselves from their own men. Sometimes they forget to turn that off when dealing with people whom such interaction is not necessary. When you can't get through to primitive-acting men, you sometimes have to show a little force.

....yet she still doesn't get it.
Typical.
Actually, it is the industry and bigots who don't get it. If she came in wearing matted dreads or something, it would be a problem. While she is framing it as a race issue, it might be more of a gender issue. If men can wear cropped hair, so should women. If it is "unprofessional" for one, it should be for the other.

Interesting. The News One site is really a Wordpress blog with a redirecting URL. Here is the URL to her photo they use:

http://ionenewsone.files.wordpress.com/2014/0...

And look at her a bit. She has makeup, earrings, and a girly blouse. She has a rather balanced look, and she has softer facial features than a lot of Black women. The hair sort of offsets the "cuteness" and may help her be taken more seriously. This look is quite a staple in the news world, and it is funny that people are now starting to become snobs about how others look. Not everyone even "watches" the weather, since it is usually on at the same time many are fixing something to eat or are eating. So they mostly just hear it.

oh wow. She is not supposed to just sit there and tolerate that and I applaud her for it. And yes she was right to use the term African American women and not women in general because this issue applied to us and blacks all over. ww don't face this issue and therefore it is not about them. Many white Americans and other non-blacks are very racist and offensive towards bw on the news. Their hair has to look a certain way and many are "supposed" to have weave or something that looks "suitable" to "their" standards. MY OPINION IS THAT HER HAIR LOOKS Beautiful. If her boss was a black man or woman I doubt she would have gotten fired.
Often types of hairstyles that are condoned in professional settings are in the manuals of businesses, schools, etc.

And it was obviously condoned or she would not have worked there that long. It was how she dealt with the public when the bigoted public made it an issue.

It is immoral for ANY business to pretend any hairstyle is "unprofessional," and it is funny that Blacks are in here being sellouts and taking up for White man's concept of being "unprofessional." We need a law banning the ban of cropped hair, afros, twists, and cornrows, and fining businesses with such rules maybe $10,000 a day until they remove such rules and stop being immoral snobs. If customers complain, the police should be called, and they should be escorted off the premises, and if EVERY business had the balls to do this, more people would learn to ignore differences in others like every person is supposed to.

Thankfully, every non-accepting, nosy person who cares in the least what OTHER people do with THEIR hair and what they wear will burn in Hell forever. Only reprobates are capable of caring what others look like, and only stupid people cannot pretend that certain differences don't exist.

If I had a choice, I'd go to a bank with green-headed tellers with tattoos and piercings since that shows me that their bosses respect them enough to let them be themselves. EVERY person should have the right to be their authentic selves everywhere within reason - obviously a molester should be the part of themselves that needs to molest, and a drunk or addict shouldn't be under the influence at work. But what would cropped hair, green hair, or non-offensive tattoos hurt? If others think that is not professional, then that notion needs to be destroyed as quickly and harshly as possible.

Every supervisor who cares what their employees look like beyond neat, clean, and not wearing things that are directly offensive to most people (no sagging, no breast, genital or buttock exposure, no racist or controversial t-shirts, etc.), would do best to eat a revolver. To me, overly formal dress is offensive. The necktie is a symbol of rape, sexism, and slavery.(Yes, it represents a penis and filthy male power, and the not resembles testes.) If I had a choice, I would consider a more relaxed, informal environment, where everyone is more real. Just because the others are stupid enough to be snobs, are stupid enough to live in a snobby gated community, and got brainwashed in college, it doesn't give them a right to dictate to others how they should to unimportant things. Snobbery has no place in business, and bigoted clients who care how people are dressed should be asked to leave, and if everyone tells them to leave, maybe they could be uncomfortable in silence until they die off and leave the superior non-snobs. If someone is wearing a suit and a tie, then why should I trust them? That is not the real them nor how they dress at home or out with friends. And if they lie about themselves with their clothes, the what other lies are they hiding?

Oh, Gateway was started by a slobby-looking guy in a t-shirt and wearing an earring back when that was not popular. The business started in a barn, hence the boxes with Holstein cow markings.

If I started my own business, I'd run it a lot different from the industry. I might actually require unique clothing that matches the person's personality. If they come in with a tie, they might be fired. Customers who complain about how we dress would be escorted out by security. And prices and quality would be kept high enough to offset any push-back, and the news about us would be helpful, even if it criticizes. We all know what is said about any publicity... One crook found that out on Google. People complained a lot about about the bad service, and guess what that done to his search engine placement and ads? To the top of the list!
