HEHEHE :P
Honesty has a beautiful and refreshing simplicity about it. No ulterior motives. No hidden meanings. An absence of hypocrisy, duplicity, political games, and verbal superficiality. As honesty and real integrity characterize our lives, there will be no need to manipulate others.--Chuck Swindoll

I am watching CNN right now. I think they'll run the Howard clip shortly. Based on what I have read here, I find it disturbing that Howard would think to ban hairstyles instead of working to change the perceptions affiliated with them. They are taking the cowards way out in this case--conformity. I am not sure if I can hate Howard all that much for it
it. Kids go to B-school in order to build careers not "find out who they are," and Howard has a responsibility to get them jobs. Could Howard really win this fight? Not if it wants to maintain its B-school. It is a battle between personal identity and corporate identity, and there no clear winner, only personal battles waged on differnt fronts.

I know that corporate America has its own set of ideals, but they shouldn't be unchanging. They will only change if people take stands. I don't know where the stand is to be taken. The B-school is one front, but the workplace is the other. I think my question is this: Is corporate America pushing everything toward white culture, or has corprate America created its own culture free from the grips of anything other than getting the deal done? It is possible that corporate culture has emerged from white culture as well, making the first question pretty empty. If corporate culture is eradicating any sense of self celebrated by any culture, then its fair in a bizarre way. If it wants to exclude African-American culture, it is racist :P

As I write this, I am thinking Howard should probably stay out of it.

I'll post more after I see the report.

excellent analysis.

JG has been dying for you to get online  :D

I find the whole thing funny. My job isn't exactly "corporate," but they want me to dress a certain way and keep my hair "cut.". More often than not I'll give 'em what they want. Every few days I'll come in rockin' jeans, Jordan's, and a mini-fro. Gets em every time :P


Every now and then I break out "the accent"  ;D

JG is impressive. He usually posts before I get a chance to, making it so I don't need to. Its fun in an annoying "he beat me" kinda way.

JG=GJ in reverse.

Coincidence? I think not!

Why you putting my sh!t out there!?

But yeah, I went STRAIGHT to HR with that mess. And it was a teleconference so they didn't know what I looked like. They only knew I went to Howard.

Lesson: Always make sure the mute button is on  ;) :D
