I was listening to WURD, and Kimberly Rollins of Oxsun Natural Hair Salon was on. They were talking about braiding laws and licensing.
I can understand that a lot of licensed cosmetologists are for regulation, considering that they have spent a lot of time and money to earn and retain their license. On the other hand, I think braiders are making a lot of money - relatively speaking - and the government wants their cut.
Taalib-Din Uqdah says it's about "Race, money, politics, power, and control."
