Reader Comments On Hairstyle Law

To The Reader’s Forum:

I have to laugh at the shallowness of the criticism I received for my objections to the Cuomo hairstyle law.

I do not contend there should be all white work places nor do I ask why that is socially unacceptable if all black or all Muslim work places are not. I am saying employers should have the liberty to decide for themselves, not you or Governor Cuomo or anyone else.

It should be an individual, not a social or collective decision. The left believes it has such superior wisdom, knowledge, and virtue that it is entitled to make these decisions for us and indeed obligated to enforce them on everyone.

That is what New York Democrats believe. I do not. And all that extra money, power, and advantage the law will bestow on the Democratic Party — coincidence? You decide.
