White Philly Cop Told to Lose Cornrows


Police in Philadelphia say a white officer who came to work with cornrows was ordered by a black superior to get a haircut because the braids violated department standards.
The Philadelphia Daily News reported Monday that Officer Thomas Strain was put on desk duty this month because of the braids, even though the paper reported dozens of black officers wear cornrows.
Police spokesman Lt. Frank Vanore says Strain's boss told the officer to cut his hair to look more "professional."
Vanore says officers' hats must fit "in a military manner" over their hair, and that Strain's hat did not. Strain got a haircut; he declined comment to the paper.
Vanore recalled only one black officer with braids in the past several years. He says that officer also was told to get a haircut.

It was more for people with straight hair which my hair isn't..so I talked to my mom about helping me make my own stuff because she makes organic products..So about May 2014 I started experimenting and came up with something to use for myself but it wasn't until fall 2014 that I decided to sell it... BVM: What exactly is in EBO Beard Butter ? EBO: Well the basis of it is shea butter coconut oil and some essential oils I use and I add a few other good things in it that I cant give away but its all natural..no chemicals or preserva
