This weekend was the 12th Annual Ray Price Capital City Bikefest in Downtown Raleigh. The tradition started back in 2003 when Clear Channel Entertainment and Curtis Media Group approached Ray Price to come up with a way to increase attendance at the TWC Pavilion at Walnut Creek (at that time it was called the Alltel Pavilion). Ray Price was able to sell out the venue and a Raleigh tradition was born.

Tattoo discrimination in the workplace is more common then one might think. With the number of people who have tattoos increase so are the chances of being discriminated against. It is said that a tattooed person does not pass judgment on a person with no tattoos but it can be said the other way around – for the most part. Who agrees with me? Dave Champion does; in fact he is bringing the same passion on tattoo discrimination in the workplace as he does to fight for our liberty.
Tattooed Need Not Apply
Almost every generation or ethnic group is faced with some type of discrimination. Just think back to the 60’s and the hippie movement, when signs were posted at businesses stating “No Long Hair People Need Apply”. As Dave Champion stated in his blog article titled, “The Ugly Truth About Tattoo Discrimination In The Workplace” we first need to understand what discrimination is:
Discriminate: (verb, used without object) – to make a distinction in favor of or against a person or thing on the basis of the group, class, or category to which the person or thing belongs rather than according to actual merit.1
