Black Woman Loses Job Offer Because She Refused to Take Out Her Braids

A black woman named Lara Odoffin is alleging that a company offered her a job, but then withdrew the offer all because she refused to take out her braids.

Odoffin took to her Facebook page to share her experience:

So after being accepted for a position within this company, they have TAKEN BACK the offer of a position on the grounds that if I do not take my braids out. Naturally I simply cannot work for the company. This type of discrimination should not still be happening in this day and age and any establishment still condoning such practices deserve to be shamed and criticised. Being a black woman means that to have a long term hairstyle that stays neat is always going to be a problem. Having braids that last for 2-4 months and can be packed neatly and styled to however a workplace requires is the solution to this problem. No workplace has any right to forbid you from this. This is discrimination and I am disgusted that I had to be subject to such behaviour in this 21st century. Please share. It is not okay.

Lara's Letter

I thought i’d post a status to save time answering questions.

Firstly I’d like to say thank you to everyone for the support. What I intended to be a vent of my feelings towards the company and maybe be shared a couple of times has exploded and touched/angered a lot of people in way I genuinely could never have imagined.

I am not currently naming the company (as much as i’d like to right now out of indignation and anger) because I do not intend to destroy someones livelihood and business, and I don’t really want a lawsuit on my hands either… however it does not deter from the fact now that I have chanced upon an opportunity to correct blatant ignorance and discrimination, and it is a fact that I certainly will keep going until it is put to rest. If it does result in me having no choice but to completely expose the company, I have no problem in doing so.

This policy needs to be eradicated completely, there is no room for such rules in this day and age- across any sector. More than anything it just made me upset. I had the right experience, they were happy to have me… it was just about my hair. Kind of silly really. I will be speaking to a lawyer about this tomorrow and will be contacting the company. As I have now learnt social media is a very powerful thing and I would not want to misuse it!

Again, thank you very much for the surprising but amazing level of support, I will keep you posted.

It has really made a difference so please do keep sharing! xxx

    Must everything be about race and discrimination. In the bank I work there are sooo many rules. You can’t wear coloured hair, you can’t wear certain styles like big Afros, you can’t also have hair up to your back/waist. You can’t wear sandals, can’t wear certain colours of clothes and shoes. Even your skirt should be a certain length. Then the men can’t have dreads and even can’t have mowhawks or certain styles. I can’t remember certain things now, but it’s plentyyy. It’s all in d Policy manual, when you join the company. In Nigeria where good jobs are so hard to come by, I’m not going to loose my position over ishhh I can or can’t wear. I wld just wait for d weekend or vacation before I do certain things. You can’t expect an organisation to change their policies just to suite you.

      Nowthis applies in naija right where most folks about the same.

      Imagine the hair rule being implemented outside of naija
      – You can’t have hair up to your waist/back : Will oyinbo, indian, spanish ladies be asked to cut their hair?

      – You can’t have colored hair – You do know not everyone is born with brown or black hair. Will red haired ladies be discrimanated against?

      The fact that it has always be done does not mean it is right.

      Yes everything is about race. Do you think they will write such a letter to a white person? Like seriously think about it. Yes it is their company and they can do whatever they like, but that’s absolutely ridic! That’s what you call discrimination against a person’s culture. What does he mean by, it is not part of the requirement and grooming culture? So biko what is the appropriate style? What if she was Muslim? would he tell her to take her scarf off? I won’t take that job offer either, am glad she stood her ground.

    If she refused to take out the braids she simply did not need the job that bad. Banks in Nigeria have these kinda rules. Guys in banks are not allowed to keep beards of any kind. and the rule for ladies have already been stated in the first comment. her priorities are not yet organized i believe. Never will i choose a hairdo over a job. But good luck with other companies.

    November 25, 2015 at 11:51 am

    To the commenters before me. Do you even understand the struggle of having kinky hair. The beauty of braids is that you can still stay true to yourself without having to spend highly unreasonable amounts of money on natural looking weaves (which is probably what the employer wants). And before you say, “but she could perm her hair”, please no.

    That rule is a clear remnant of the struggle to achieve the European ideal of straight hair. Something which simply isn’t naturally possible for us.

    Lara didn’t mention she was going to get dreads (which I’ll admit can look gross). Just braids..

    • Olutt

      November 25, 2015 at 5:34 pm

      And do you know the history of kinky hair? wake up dear! we are living in the civilized world and not cave era. Combing or styling your hair down is grooming. As much as i am for freedom to stay original, rules are there to be followed. This isn’t a struggle,trust me you have more struggles to be worried about in the world. You did that on your hair because of choice. Policies are there to be conformed to, something most of us are detesting in favor of freedom. If it’s natural and normal why are we not all having claws as nails, scruffy goaties as beards, long locks as hair.

    i lost a job for my veil. i aint making noise about it because its the company rule. i could devise a means of wearing the veil only out of office and keeping my hair in the job premises if i really needed the job that bad(Allah would have understood, that’s why there’s a verse that tells us we can eat haraam foods when we find ourselves in a do/die situation). my dear, find a that suits u and stop playing the racial card. when u go to Rome, do as the Romans do or take the next available flight.

      When in Rome do as Romans do? Really? How many of our native cultures here in Africa did the whites adopt when they came? Even up to the clothes, in that blazing heat they still wore their 3peice suits and MADE the locals change their own ways to suit the visitors.

      Superiority complex is at play here. The absolute certainty that blacks hv to bow eventually. Someone has to take a stand at some point. Rosa parks did this, and is celebrated. Many others are suffering this kind of nonsense and they just keep quiet. Finally some one is speaking up, pls let’s support her.

    November 25, 2015 at 12:37 pm

    @your’e joking right:: you may not understand the struggle of getting a job either. Or is that easy to find? nobody asked her to perm the hair or any of that. there is something known as a wig. She could have gotten herself a simple looking wig or 2 for work and when you get a leave from work you can look as kinky as you want to honey. It’s just a sacrifice and who knows she might find another job soon that will allow her rock whatever she wants. This is not a race thing to me. It’s just the rule. If it was because she was black she would not have gotten the job to begin with. Good luck to her anyway.

    • You're still joking right?

      November 25, 2015 at 1:10 pm

      Why the hell should anyone have to wear a wig? I honestly do not know how to respond to you. And unless one is ready to drop a couple hundred USDs the wigs simply look comical (see “plastic, keep away from fire weaves” carried by many bank tellers and office workers in Nigeria).

      Yes, I agree it’s a rule, but it’s a stupid rule. A rule that has no place in today’s society of inclusion. Shouldn’t rules by up for change if deemed necessary? It was a rule once upon a time that women couldn’t vote. Thankfully the suffragettes came along and for our right to pick our leaders as women. If they’d listened to people like you saying “leave it, we can’t vote, it’s a rule, stop arguing” the world would still be in those dark ages.

      If she wanted to fight this legally she could successfully bring up discrimination due to race, which in EU member states is illegal. And why are we mentioning the race card, because we have our hair as a result of our race. We’re not saying she’s being discriminated against because she’s black. However, because she’s black her natural hair isn’t like what they show in the L’Oreal adverts.

    As much as I applaud her taking a stand, I would say that in this case it was overrated. Businesses exist to serve customers/clients not employees. If as per feedback from the customers, the business decides to have a dress code, should they now turn around because of one employee? Should employees be pleased at the expense of their clients? I once worked as a hotel staff, we had rules up to our fingernails. Its the employers decision to do what’s fitting for his/her company. Quit the racist card

      The request from a customer can not be greater than employment laws,which forbids discrimination based on such a thing as hair.

    November 25, 2015 at 12:59 pm

    Why do we love playing the race card all the time? First of all, she was given an option and she made her choice which is within her rights as a human being. She chose to have her braids over a job. Secondly, this is part of the organization’s policies so they wouldn’t have created it because of her. If they didn’t want her. she wouldn’t have been offered a job in the first place. So my dear friend enjoy your 5 minutes of fame because there is nothing racist about this. Run along

Everything is very much about RACE in America. Why is everyone but white male a MINORITY? They are reinforcing white supremacy get your head out your ass.

    Now she wants to sue the company, with her pictures everywhere you think any other company will hire her again??? E go hard oo

    Madam, better remove the braids and start work fast fast. (Go to youtube to learn how to maintain ur hair(if it’s natural) or buy cheap weavons from Peckham and learn to fix ur weavons yourself if u can’t afford it).

    Qoute me she will nt win the case. Come on big companies have set rules and OGA at the top.

      I am a banker here in the US, we have a dress code which we must follow. No one cares about your hairstyle unless you have it all messed up. If you want to do braids, or any kind of hair, just have it neatly packed, or styled. I still don’t get what he meant by “we simply cannot accept braids” Like who are your clients? Whites who are scared of women in braids?

    What’s wrong with braids abeg? Maybe I’m the one lost here, but if a white people start wearing it, then it becomes a trend, chic or whatever, but a hairstyle that is commonly linked to black women is rejected ? Okay oo! However, since it’s the company’s policy, you have to deal with it.. but in the wider perspective, there’s some underlying racism here, believe it or not

    “there is no room for such rules in this day and age- across any sector. “: I agree!

    Come on People, look at the picture carefully! Does her hair look untidy?, unprofessional? slutty? So on what basis should she be denied a job?

    Straight hair being the only professional look you realise is a throwback, to things like literacy laws to prevent Blacks from voting. Kinky hair is a fundamental part of our genetic makeup and should not be used as a baseline for disqualification.

    November 25, 2015 at 1:54 pm

    Exactly..i read her actual post and her friends were commenting and forming outrage and that she should call a lawyer all that. As I am now,if I get a job and they require me to cut my hair, I will. She doesn’t need the job as far as I am concerned. She can’t tell me it’s only braids she carries on her hair. And this will make other organisations to be wary of her because she might call them out too. She is preventing future employment opportunities for herself .

    November 25, 2015 at 2:57 pm

    I think a lot of the comments here miss the point.
    Nigeria’s unemployment issues are completely separate to the fact that largely in the west you are required to conform to western ideals of beauty/presentability and thus appearing African is second rate.. And to those of you asking why not opt for wigs/weaves or finding dreads disgusting, it appears that the west is succeeding! …you must feel that your afro in its natural state is not good enough…so its not surprising that dreads and afros are looked down on even in Nigeria! However if you venture to South Africa,Kenya, Tanzania,Sudan even next door Ghana and you’ll find most women proudly wear their hair in its natural state in high profile corporate positions.

    To sum up, yes said company’s policy is racist! And ignorance and western culture worship still exists in Nigeria. Sad times all around.

    Apparently, some people have zero understanding what discrimination is. They’re used to being pushovers and being told what to do and just jumping and obeying orders because of the fear of hunger or maybe sheer ignorance.
    The company offered her the job and withdrew it because she refused to take out her braids. Braids is an African woman’s identity. Withdrawal of the offer for the reason given is discrimination!

    You can enlighten yourselves by getting a copy of the constitution (of wherever you live) for starters. The language is usually simple enough for a clear understanding.

    I support the organisation fully. It is not your right to dictate your preferred appearance to me in my own establishment. There is nothing major about taking off your braids if we are going by this photo. If braids are completely banned for a woman of African descent, then we have an issue. Otherwise I am also in support that the hair you have on is not appropriate for presenting certain images. We have to consider that the reason they are in business are the clients. And if they want an image you cannot present, by all means keep walking.

    Wow its amazing to read the responses here.Yes times are hard and if you can stomach discrimation just to survive (having a job), great. That does not mean she should.

    They are simply using oyinbo woman hair standards to judge her. So yes this is discrimination. Because something has always been done, doesn’t make it right. If noone ever speaks up, change will never happen.

    This same issue was raised when the US Navy came out with hair policies that clearly worked against women of color. The policies had to be reviewed after nation wide outrage. And it was amended to include braids and other styles.
    http://www.navytimes.com/story/military/pentagon/2014/12/09/navy-female-hairstyles-regulation/20088005/

    So no she is not being silly. And i applaud her for standing for something.

  24. Koffie

    November 25, 2015 at 6:00 pm

    She isn’t being silly at all. Most people commenting about how their “Nigerian Employer” does not allow certain hair colours and all, come one that’s like comparing apples and oranges. How can you even compare not being allowed to wear denim and trainers to this babe’s situation? How did you make that leap. if they don’t like her hair braided, they’d probably not like it in its kinky state and ask her to wear wigs to look more ‘oyinbo’.
    She’s in a country dominated by whites and earned the job but was refused cos her hair was in braids? If they had told her to pack it up in a neat bun everyday, I’m sure she wouldn’t have had issues. They simply wanted her to look like their perception of ideal; straight hair which clearly shows discrimination. Will you see IBM, Oracle, McKinsey, Accenture LLP etc saying stuff like that? They clearly indicate that they welcome all races and expectedly if your hair is more manageable in braids, keep it while still being neat. I’m appalled that companies like this still exist in America.

  25. Ma'am

    November 25, 2015 at 6:06 pm

    I don’t think any of the commentators understand the brevity of this situation. People do not understand their rights as employees that’s why they will let things like this pass by. If she does sue the company I can assure you she might just win.

    The only reason why a person should change anything about their appearance is if and only if it is a job related necessity. If she is working in a plant or factory, yes she should’t have braids. But if it is an office setting, why should she take them out? are the braids distracting her from her work, or will customers start pulling the braids out of the blue? A white person will not be told to cut off their hair if it was too long according to “company policy”.

    Well trained HR professionals in the US and UK know anti-discrimination laws and this is grounds for a discrimination suit. If a policy is passed that favors one race over another, then it is discriminatory.

    Ignorant comments wants again. I don’t blame you Nigerians, I guess this is our reality. We would sell pur birth right to get a job. However don’t use your reality to judge hers please. Her hair is neat and she should be able to work in any environment with it except she is dealing with machines. And even at that, she can wear an apron. The truth is a lot of blacks wear braids. Note that the reason is usually for COMFORT. Be true to yourselves, it is the least demanding hair to carry around as a black woman. And yes, like it or not, it is an identity. Even in school it is referred to as resumption hair/ exam hair. Banning this hairstyle in the work place is going to affect ONLY the black woman directly. So yes, the company’s policy is racist. This is not about belief or religion. Which can be subjective, this is about race. You all should cut the lady some slack. I’m disappointed because we Nigerians are vlacks and yet we will not use common sense sometimes. She is not wearing the hair for ako, she is wearing it for convenience please. You don’t have to have lived outside Nigerian to understand the reality of racism. I have never been out of Nigeria for more than 24hours before and I understand this perfectly. Go to a Julius berger or rcc construction site and see how these people display blatant racism to us in our own land. Please educate yourselves Nigerians. This is not a matter to be joked with or scorned.I have a feeling a high percentage of the company’s customer base are white supremacists. Hence, customer’s preference in this case is not a good enough justification. I mean, she is not wearing dreads *rme*

    Never been an issue with most organisations seen enough black women in the City(investment banking) with braids neatly packed…
    Whichever way their decision is ridicu;ous…must w accept everything in order to get a job or fit in..obviously it wasn’t meant for her.
    Do you know Sikh(indians) wear their Turban in corporate settings and put that dot in the middle of their head during their festive periods??

    I’m really sorry that I read some comments today. Some people will sell their own mothers for a piece of bread. How does her hairstyle or braids affect her ability to do a good job? Was her hair making her look unkempt or untidy? And people saying she must not have wanted the job badly enough, she did not beg for the job.They didn’t give her the job out of the goodness of their hearts.She got it because she was the most qualified and most impressive of all the other applicants. Know your worth and you will not kiss the feet of a man just like you.

    These bishes say the same thing about Afros. Basically, black women have to change the structure of their natural hair to suit these institutions’ level of comfort. If you wear certain hairstyles it is viewed as too ‘Afrocentric’ too ‘militant’, so they say get a conventional bob or pin your hair up. Natural kinky hair cannot do a bob hairdo and who is going to pin up their hair everyday. The issue is not this woman and her braids, it is the feeling braid evokes in some, and what they perceive it to be. They didn’t see her braids in the interview to strike her off the list? why even hire her to begin with? Obviously she was the best candidate for the job so they picked her despite her hair in the hopes she would conform.

    I don’t blame her for not taking the job, what would be the next gripe, she isn’t wearing makeup, not wearing high heels, her nails are not polished. That’s why I have always stayed in the casual work industry. I stick to the media industry where you can wear jeans Monday to Friday if you so desire, and dressing casually is the norm, any hairdo will work, had my blue highlights in my hair for a while, no problem, looking at moving to purple now. Braids, fros, visible tattoos no problem, be comfortable is all that is required, you can do all that and still make a very decent living. Know who you are and put yourself in the industry that suits you, there are many well paying jobs that will accept someone wearing braids.

      Afros were not a huge problem until millenials made them one. I have never seen so many complaints about ‘natural’ hair as they call it today in my life. Some Black women continue to say ‘my hair grows that way.’ Since when did someone’s hair grow into a nest? Some of them need to take a look back at how afros really looked in the work place and every day life. They were trimmed and well groomed. Not all over the head as if they woke up and went to work that way.
      I worked with a lady with hair like that in a predominantly Black office and she was the talk after meetings. I felt so sorry for her but luckily one of the ladies did take her aside and tell her she had to do something with her hair. Her sister was a cosmetologist and she even offered to help. It was totally unprofessional for her work environment. She came in the next meeting looking well groomed. No, you don’t have to perm your hair but please comb or pick it out before leaving home. People with attitudes have issues with authority in the first place.

    Its unfortunate how most of you missed the point of this young lady’s write up. If she lives in the U.S.A , she can raise it up as a race card and have lawyers look for her for representation. The fact that Sam specifically mentioned braids, thats kinda targeting a particular race. You dont see an average caucasian lady braid her hair for work., Blacks are the ones that typically braid their hair, so yes, it comes down to race. and when I say blacks, that is taking into consideration the 1% rule.
    And those of you saying she doesnt have a basis for doing this, speak for yourself. You dont have to live in US to read or hear about various people who have raised similar issues about their workplace. There was the issue of the lady that was told she has to wear only bone straight flat ironed permed hair like the caucasians, and another lady who got the same information from a fellow black lady who was an upper manager and what did they all do? Yup, they cried out. So before you hush her up for your ignorance, try to put yourself in her shoes.

    Job is good, but its not a do or die affair. To each his own. Not everyone sees a job as you see it. She can afford to walk away from the job because of what she stands for and I applaud her for that. If you don’t stand for something (In this case, her freedom to wear a clean packed braids), then you will fall for anything. Not standing up or speaking up is what has kept black people behind.

    As for Nigerian institute or businesses, they get away with a whole lot of things because their Nigerian staff/employees don’t know their rights or can’t stand up for those rights. or have the right back up.

    @ Nik, you hit the nail on the head.

    A lot of people commenting here don’t understand the discrimination minorities face. Frankly, I am quite shocked that some people don’t even understand the post before commenting. It’s not until an employer spells out to you that they can’t employ you because of your skin colour before you know you are have been discriminated against.
    This is not like having piercings all over your face or visible tattoos, at least we would know the rule applied to all races.

    Reading his response it doesn’t sound like a professional letter. “Can’t offer you work” sounds like something a teenager would say. That did not come from a professional HR team that’s for sure. She’s blessed to go elsewhere.
