Yeah, you heard me correct. A white police officer in Philly was told by a black supervisor that his 'cornrow' hairstyle was unprofessional and he needs to cut it. However Officer Thomas Strain defends that Black officers are allowed to wear their hair in the 'cornrow' fashion. I'm lost on this one, because I thought 'one for all and all for one' on any police force.
I did ask a white friend of mines what she thought and her reaction was, "What's cracking hommie? What's good in the hood Son?" When I gave her the 'crazy' look she said, "Exactly. See how crazy I sound saying that. You're white dude. Live with it." I could do nothing but laugh, because she keeps it so real with me.
