1.6 Million fine for braiding hair!

Whites will push black people down in everything. why fine someone $16, 000 for braiding without license?
Ever since she was a little girl, Fatou Diouf has been braiding hair.
Tennessee has forced Fatou to pay a staggering $16,000 in fines, simply because she employed workers who did not have a government license to braid hair.

Tennessee Board of Cosmetology and Barber Examiners, has fined nearly $100,000 in fines levied against dozens of braiders and more than 30 different natural hair shops and salons since 2009.

For Fatou, those heavy fines have been “very stressful.” Under a payment plan for her most recent violations, she has had to pay over $830 a month to the state, a burdensome expense she’s struggled to cover, on top of providing for her two children, dealing with her divorce, and sending remittances to support her family back in Senegal.

To obtaining that license, braiders must complete at least 300 hours of coursework, which often means sacrificing the equivalent of working almost two months full-time. Across the entire state, only 3 schools offer those courses, charging anywhere from $1,500 to $5,000 for tuition.

Meanwhile the same state reduce the fine for carrying unlicensed gun from $500 to $250


the law is a burro

That’s how states and counties generate money , every trade has a license, hata kuna college ya Santa Claus ?
That’s the law, and she knew it but decided otherwise, it’s punitive yes, but will send a message out.

The problem wasn’t braiding hair. The problems is running an operation with unlicensed workers. That is always a problem. And she knew it was illegal. Braiding hair costs at least $200 per person. She could have paid the monthly $830 pretty easily.
