In the article “Your Hair, Your Right?” by Joe Bubar it argues that there should be a law passed in all the states of the United States of America that protects the rights of natural hair . They argue that most people are unfazed by this argument because they either have straight hair or wavy hair that doesn’t stand out. However within the African American community there is discrimination because their hair is very curly and beautifully unique from others. They share scenarios such as a young man attending his wrestling match and he had to either cut off his dreads or forfeit his match. Another situation where a young woman was fired from her workplace because she refused to “calm” her natural and bundfull curls.
Overall I think that the article makes a great argument. The discrimination of natural hair ridiculous. The young man in his wrestling match shouldn’t have been put in that situation as that is literally his hair. By telling him to cut it off is basically them attacking his culture as his hair is part of culture and his identity. .Tags: African-Americans humanrights Orange Cove High School Rights Rights of the People
