Thurgood Mashall College Denies MBA Student Entry Because Of His Dreadlocks

When I saw the picture and heard about the story I honestly thought that this was just another white University denying an educated black man, for whatever reason that they could find. But once I did my own research I found it extremely interesting that this was a historically African American college that is well-respected and known for its prestige educational system.

Tamon George is an MBA student and the President of the Graduate Student Government Association at the University of the District of Columbia. The young man is said to be well dressed, swell spoken and very educated. He’d hoped to be able to one day attend the Thurgood Marshall College Fund Leadership Institution.

This conference was said to have at least 500 of the most educationally elite students from 47 HBCU’s around the country. It was scheduled to take place in November of 2014.

The goal of this conference was to provide the students with the leadership and job training that they needed for internships with many Fortune 500 companies.

George was informed by the conference organizers that he would be denied access into the conference due to the fact that he had dreadlocks.

According to Urban Intellectuals:

George stated:

“After my acceptance, I was then informed that I had been disqualified based on my physical appearance. I was informed that The Thurgood Marshall College Fund has instituted a ban of “Dreadlocks” for male participants of the conference. Thus, my invitation to attend the conference would be contingent upon the removal of my hair.”

Cutting his dreadlocks wasn’t even an option for George, being that he wore his hair the same as his father and he felt that the hairstyle held some significance with his cultural identification and hereditary spirit.

What do you guys think about this? Why would the conference personnel feel that his hair is more important than his intellect and his character?

I think it’s sad that he was given such a ridiculous ultimatum and I can’t help but wonder if other students with the same hairstyle were denied the same access.

Thank you for reading!

Sincerely,

Naturally Triece

    Standards are important. Rebellious black people refuse to submit to authority. Every legitimate entity has an image or a profile it would like to project. If you are not willing to submit to the guidelines of the group or institution you are seeking to enter; you should probably consider applying elsewhere.

    Understand the meaning – dreadlocks, means dreadful. Something distasteful. The hairstyle was created by a group of men who incessantly smoked “ganga”(marijuana) and worshiped Halle Selaise(the Emperor of Ethiopia) as god. The never washed their hair. When they use to go into the ocean for a swim, the dirt from the filthy hair, would leave a dark spot in the water.

      Who started the term “dread?” Who were the first race/group of people who deemed our texture of hair “dreadful” or “nappy?” Please do your research!

      Jessica where the hell did u get ur incorrect information from?
      Rastas are clean, eat healthy and r very God fearing people. U
      may think that not having dreads will make whites like u better. They don’t…when they can u r called a “uppy nigga”. Just for ur information Jesus had DREADS…KNOW UR HISTORY AND STOP TRYING TO ASSIMILATE

    Jessica as much as ur kind tries to assimilate you will never be fully accepted or the least bit respected more like tolerated as long as you can be controlled. All your kind represents are white washed traitors with no sense of cultural identity, respect nor dignity for yourself. These corporations and institutions control you with their degrees, titles and some sense of provenience. When they are finished and no longer have an us for you they’ll toss u in the gutter.

    Hard to believe I just read that. That reminds me of the old time story of I think it is Lil’ Black Sambo who was so said to be so greasy and after running and running he melted and turned into a puddle of oil/grease. From my understanding, the term dreadlocks was coined by non black people who, were afraid of the ferocity of the wearers’ hair, i.e., they dreaded the look of the locks..I personally have never, ever heard that lock wearers’ hair made dirty spots in the water. Sounds like a (white) urban myth to me.

      Those of us who were alive when various styles and fads emerged, REMEMBER history.
      It’s not something we read in a book, or have been propagandized into embracing. Those black men who lived in the hills of Jamaica, named their hairstyles “dreadlocks.” They wanted to be shocking, they wanted to make people uncomfortable; they wanted to make people notice them. They also wanted to stay perpetually high around the clock.

    The comments on here are just. Wow. Such ignorance.

    I’m pleased with the young man for standing his ground and very disappointed that a African-American institution can take such a step.
