When will the foolishness and hoopla around black people's hair stop? Over the past year we've had to hear about a little girl being kicked out of school for wearing locs, an Ohio school banning a list of natural hairstyles and let's not forget meteorologist Rhonda Lee who was fired for defending her right to rock her natural hair on TV.

Now comes news out of Baltimore that a black woman has allegedly been fired from her job because of her blonde highlights.

Farryn Johnson told Maryland's CBS News affiliate that she was let go from her job as a waitress at Hooters due to '"improper image" after the 25-year-old refused to remove blonde highlights from her dark brown hair.

"They specifically said, 'Black women don't have blonde in their hair, so you need to take it out,'" Johnson told CBS.
