The main reason we travel, outside of wanting to relax and party, is to learn about other cultures and the people who make a continuous effort to cultivate them.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a lawsuit on behalf of Ms. Chasity Jones, who in 2010 was denied employment at an Alabama insurance claims company because of the dreadlocks. The company said that they didn’t want their employees wearing the style after reportedly calling it “messy” and would only offer Jones the job if she cut her hair.
