She is spoilt. Her parents are a travesty and the school is 100% correct. Kid needs to get real. 

 

You go to school to LEARN. It is not a fashion statement.

If there's a rule about length, okay, and I suppose everyone should follow the rule. If it's about being straight, that's kinda racist.

white people don't have curly hair? Her hair is enormous, it is very distracting, especially if other kids are teasing about it. The school rules say no distracting hair therefore she broke the rules. Her mother is a ###### mother, she is prepared to harm the girl's education moving her school so she doesn't have to cut it.

Case closed. Do what they ask or go to a public school

At least comb your hair...and using a hair pick is not combing your hair. That would go a long way to making it less puffed out. Imagine, if anyone of any race, just let their hair do whatever with little care to it.

If you're not black, then you can't comprehend how annoying it is for us.


I have also been in places where I was the minority and heard comments about white people and even treated different. Racism is every where and most experience it at some point and time. Yes, even white people.

I'd honestly recommend everyone watch the Chris Rock documentary called "Good Hair" to gain some perspective on the "relationship" black women have with their hair. That stuff blew my mind and it just shows how sometimes you put exactly 0% of thought into some issues that don't concern you personally.

 

But to backpedal a bit from the race argument, I do think this would be wrong even if the girl was white, if her hair was naturally curly, you need to accept as that being her natural form. You wouldn't ask a bald guy to wear a wig because his baldness offends you and looks out of the norm, right? Her hair is just fine and nothing too out of the ordinary, so I think it's unfair to ask her to adjust to some standard that doesn't really exist.

Most women are like that. I don't think it's strictly a black women thing.

Yes, most women are irrational when it comes to hair (the ones with straight hair always want it curly, and the ones with curly hair always want it straight -- basing this on about a dozen times I've had to wait for hours for girls to get their hair done), but what was especially eye-opening with Good Hair is the amount of trouble black women go through to get "good hair." Watch the documentary, it's available on YouTube if you search for it, it's a really interesting watch.

Should the School have these rules? No, it's lame.

Does the School have these rules? Yes, so obey them or get out.

 

She isn't a special case here and she won't be in the real world.

 

Exactly. It's much tougher in the real world than any school will be.

Hair rules, silly.

But does this Christian Academy teach evolution?

 

Deru kugi wa utareru

        The nail that sticks out gets hammered down.


Hehe. Actually, that's a mistake. Also made by many Japanese people.
It is, in fact, "Deru kui wa utareru"
        The stake that sticks out gets hammered down.

 

I guess that with "kui" and "kugi" sounding similar, and both being things which are hammered down, it was inevitable that kugi would start doing the rounds as nails are more familiar to most people than stakes....

Reality is gonna be a bitch when this girl eventually graduates from school and tries to get a job when they tell her to cut her hair because it's distracting in the work place.

 

Whoopi Goldberg didn't. Life isn't always black and white, most of the time it's grey and it's not just 50 shades of it.
