Of the many things to be discriminated against for, hair is at the top as the most, annoying, petty and downright wrong thing to be discriminated for.

Chasity Jones has received a job offer at a call center as a customer service representative in Mobile, Alabama in 2010, according to Blavity. After her interview, a manager from HR told said that her dreadlocks violated their grooming policy because they “tend to get messy.”

Upon further remarks about her hair not being acceptable, Jones refused to change her hair which resulted in the call center taking back their job offer.

On April 4, the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund (LDF) got with Jones and filed a petition to add EEOC v. Catastrophe Management Solutions to the Supreme Court. This happened shortly after they being denied by the Alabama District Court and the 11th Court of Appeals.
