Rastafari Cook Ordered to Cut Dreadlocks, U.S. Sues for Discrimination

JULY 15, 2016

The Obama administration is spending taxpayer dollars to sue a private business for not allowing a male employee to have long, matted and knotted hair required to practice an “Afrocentric” religion in which followers also smoke marijuana (“the spiritual use of cannabis”). Known as Rastafari, it was born in the slums of Jamaica and followers must have dreadlocks, long clumps of ungroomed hair, symbolizing the mane of the Lion of Judah.  Read more...

Rasta Cook Chef Says He Was Fired Over Dreadlocks

With the new suit in Orlando, the EEOC is asking the court to enjoin Hospitality Staff from discriminating against its employees on the basis of religion. The agency also seeks to "make Mr. Joseph whole" by asking the court to order the staffing company to pay him past and future wages, back-pay, out-of-pocket expenses and punitive damages. The suit also requests that Joseph be reinstated in his former position, or a similar one, with a religious accommodation.

How is this something OBAMA is doing?  Yes, it's a Federal Agency but Obama didn't create the agency nor did he create the rules for it.

Seems to me a hair net could have solved this.  And I don't see at all what Obama has to do with it.  JMHO
