A U Turn on the hair ‘fight’ appears to be in sight
Private school administrators appear to be backing down of forcing an African-American 12 year old to cut and shape her hair–or face expulsion.
I find it hard to believe that in 2013 a church school considers brushed natural afro type hair to be a distraction.
Brave intelligent Vanessa said, “”It says that I’m unique. First of all, it’s puffy and I like it that way. I know people will tease me about it because it’s not straight. I don’t fit in.”

Got to take my hat off to Vanessa and her African-American mother (who wears a standard European hair type wig), and her white father, for making a stand. No doubt their actions has created a well needed debate not just in the USA but around the world, as and where similar negative views and a lack of understanding of natural afro hair, are held by both white and black people alike.
