California has become the first state to ban discrimination against black people for wearing natural hair styles to work and school. This includes styles such as afros, braids, twists and locks. On Wednesday, Governor x signed the bill into law. Democratic Senator x of Los Angeles, a black woman, proposed the law. x wears her hair in locks. The law makes California the first state to clearly say such hairstyles are linked to race, and therefore protected against discrimination. We're changing the course of history, hopefully across this country, x said. The law shows that what has been defined as professional hairstyles and clothing has historically been European-center, she said. x owns a hair salon in Sacramento. She also sells makeup at a department store. x says she usually wears her hair braided or in an afro. But one day, she went to work with straightened hair.

The issue was also publicized last December after a video from a wrestling competition in New Jersey surfaced. Before the competition, a white referee told a black high-school wrestler that he must cut off his locks to compete. California's Governor said the video was a clear example of the discrimination black people in America face. Though California is the first state with such a law, New York City earlier this year issued legal guidance about discrimination based on hairstyle. The beauty products company, Dove, has partners with organizations pushing for more hairstyle protections. And x said she hopes other states follow California. x's bill adds language to the state's discrimination laws to say that race also includes traits historically associated with race. They include hair textures and protective hairstyles. It further defines protective hairstyles as braids, twists and locks...
