Same outfit. Same height. Same basic ability to make coffee, flip burgers, do data entry, scrub floors, provide customer service etc. But when they apply to the same jobs as myself they are far less likely to be selected for jobs not just because of skin color but also because of their tattoos. Deemed unprofessional, irresponsible or at times even threatening- this body art has hindered their ability to make money. For them- the tattoos represent a life lived, they honor where they have come from and where they hope to go. They are self expression and personal. But unless they are covered, they are not allowed. Some people claim for "branding reasons". But many others claim it's to keep employees uniform. Why are we so scared of people who express themselves like this? Why do we use SKIN as a RESUME? #LetUsWork #tatted #tattedtales #lovewins #beautyisntskindeep #lgbtq #saga #EducateDontHate #only1meyhdasme4life W/ @tinokamal an amazing rap artist with a passion for passion.
