Cries of racial bias follow release of U.S. Army’s new grooming policy
The U.S. Army is coming under fired for changes to its grooming policy.
Some say it discriminates against black women with natural hairstyles.
Army Regulation 670-1 has not been published or made official yet, but the new rules were detailed in a PowerPoint presentation that was leaked on March 20. Among the grooming regulations are updated restrictions on how women soldiers can wear their hair.
Women inside and outside of the service have expressed outrage at the policy. A White House petition with more than 3,000 signatures has called for the policy to be changed.

Are they targeting black women?
