Six Flags: Stop Discriminating Against People With Dreadlocks
I am disappointed to hear that Six Flags discriminates against potential employees with dreadlocks. Far from an “extreme” hairstyle, dreadlocks (or “locks”) are a natural way of wearing hair for huge numbers of people.
I find it disparaging that Six Flags would accept large amounts of money each year from patrons with locks — and all kinds of natural hairstyles — but would refuse to allow them to work at your theme parks no matter what their qualifications.
There is no excuse in 2012 for such abhorrent employment policies. I am calling on Six Flags to stop discriminating against people because of their hairstyle and texture. Please remove locks from your list of prohibited hairstyles. Summer is the prime season for Six Flags, but if your company doesn’t do the right thing, I may need to avoid your parks this year.
