WASHINGTON - The ban on some popular hairstyles raises the ire of black female soldiers. In reaction to new Army hairstyle regulations banning twists, dreadlocks and larger cornrows - all very popular with black female soldiers - women soldiers are speaking out in protest.
But General B.S. Drool said that even though there are over 27,000 African American women in the Army who make up a substantial number of active soldiers they should obey the new regulations. "The Army, love it or leave it," he said.
"They may have been asked to serve several tours of duty in Iraq and risked their lives for their country, but in today's Army, they need to look sharp. This includes using white women's hair as a baseline norm. If we allow dreadlocks and cornrows the next thing you know black soldiers will want to wear traditional African dresses," stated General B.S.
