"You don't get to "express" yourself in corporate america, and as I understand it, the schools already have dress codes and nobody is boo hooing over that. Would you be opposed if they banned visible tattoos and facial piercings?"
You are right, you don't get to express yourself in corporate America...so for that reason, if you attend Howard University, which is at least to me the most well-known/prestigious of all HBCU's...which are Universities...centers for cultural and academic learning and expression....you don't get to express yourself either? That does not make sense to me. As far as the dress codes, they are a private school and are entitled to do what they want, but the fact is I am graduating with brothers and sisters who wear sweats to class almost everyday and since Fall semester they have had their corporate jobs already secured, whereas I have people at Howard who graduated last year and were forced to settle after grueling job searches, dress code and all. As a Black man, and a business major, I don't know how to feel about the fact that I'm glad I don't go to HU. As far as the facial piercings and visible tattoo's comment...those are extreme and I personally would not recommend them to anyone, regardless of their career aspirations, but I was referring to hair. And I do know professional men and women with these hairstyles that are being banned.
Haha and that comment about the weaves was hilarious...and so true
