Her statement was so shocking. I know that white people dislike our hair in natural and protective styles. However, her brazenness was a bit much. They have definitely been conditined to think that braids are unprofessional. I always thought braids were great for work because they are versitle and tidy. You are right that they should unlearn these stereotypes. Thanks so much for sharing your experiences.
