Is this racial discrimination?
White officer ordered to get rid of cornrows hairstyle, while black officers wear the without restriction. (Albeit, any white person with cornrows looks silly, it IS a permissible hairstyle...)

Perhaps. No officer white, black or polka dotted should wear them. IMHO. Doesn't look professional and may detract from the officers level of authority. Some may see him as just another regular Joe instead of someone who authority should be respected.

This is from the article:
"While dozens of black officers across the city wear cornrows, Officer Thomas Strain is white. So when the five-year veteran showed up for work Sept. 3 with the traditionally black hairstyle, it didn't take long for his colleagues - or his bosses - to notice."
