The soap company Dove is having a bad hair day. They are running this full-page ad in the New York Times (tells you a lot about their woke politics) to combat what they call “race based hair discrimination.”
|Wait! You say you’ve never heard of hair discrimination? Where have you been?
Here’s Dove’s explanation of this new civil rights cause:
“We want all beauty to be welcome in all places and institutions. Narrow beauty standards make it difficult for Black women and girls in particular to freely celebrate their own beauty. While all women experience pressure to conform to certain standards of appearance, society’s bias has resulted in unfair judgment and discrimination against Black women based on hair texture and protective hairstyles, including braids, locs, and twists, that are inherent to their race.
That’s why we co-founded the CROWN Coalition to advance anti-hair discrimination legislation called The CROWN Act. The CROWN Act, which stands for Creating a Respectful and Open World for Natural Hair, is a law that prohibits discrimination based on hair texture and hairstyle.”
Yes, absolutely! There should be a LAW.
And just for the record, we absolutely love this woman’s hair! But then we don’t discriminate at CTUP. Oh, but we won’t be buying Dove soap anytime soon.
