TIME FOR AN ALICE WALKER BEATDOWN

I don't see a problem with it as long as they enforce the same standards against dumbass white person hair styles, so no mullets, mohawks, corn rows (well, that one's omni-racial nowadays), shaggy hair on boys, bowl cuts, spiked hair, etc.

There's nothing wrong with a school enforcing a dress code that makes the kids look presentable and professional.

Yes, women who wear afros and dreadlocks look completely unprofessional.

Yup, Afros are SO faddish. I mean, who would think that a hairstyle that is natural, untreated, and chemically unaltered would be so popular with folks of African descent? I mean, obviously a hot comb, a flat iron, chemically straightened or relaxed hair, that is obviously much more professional, and thus they should likewise only allow paler folks to attend when they have had their hair permed or straightened as well, right?

Dreadlocks, likewise, are so terribly faddish, that the Maasai have been doing it since the 15th Century, and Justin the Just, the first Bishop of Jerusalem wore them. I mean, they're just so kooky, right? Africans, Hindu, even Tibetan Buddhists, and oddly enough Rastafarians have them in expressions of religious devotion.

Yup. Just kooky and faddish...

Bullshiat. Schools should not be in the business of dictating fashion or style. They aren't the students' employers, and their job is to educate students-- Not stifle their individuality.

In the 1970s and 1980s I attended several schools, including some religious ones. The religious institutions had strict dress codes, and they were full of nasty, mean, unhappy, frequently-cheating-or-failing students. The public schools I attended didn't give a damn how students looked as long as they weren't exposing themselves, and the students were happier, more productive, and I'm pretty certain they learned more and retained it.

Youth is the ONLY time in our lives when we can truly express ourselves without consequence. We should not be imposing the corporate board room rules of adults on kids. There's NO DAMNED REASON a child needs to look "professional." They are not professionals. They are not employees.

If you're paying my kid to attend school, then you can dictate what he wears as if he were an employee. If I'm paying taxes for my kid to attend school, then the school board and public servants can STFU and figure out better ways to educate rather than trying to impose their will on students.

School is not church, a corporate office building, or a factory, and the social aspects of growing up and discovering who you are are VITAL to a child's development. Stifling individuality is downright evil.

I can see where you're coming from, but schools also have the duty of establishing a respect for cultural norms and decent behavior since so many parents seem unwilling or incapable of doing that at home.  The way you do your hair or dress does not define your individuality, it just establishes credibility with whichever clique you choose to associate yourself with.  Be your own person by all means, but do it in a way that doesn't involve thumbing your nose at society.

I'd be willing to bet that if you compared public school success and performance compared to private schools and only compared students at the same socioeconomic level, the results would be nearly indistinguishable.  Private schools and charter schools that score better do so because they have ways of keeping out the riff raff.  Publics schools have to accept everyone, which brings the averages down.

Why is something like this a social norm?

Besides those who have to wear headgear, having shortened professional looking hair lacks any meaningful purpose.

Why is something like this a social norm?

What does headgear have to do with anything?  I don't know why some of the rules are the rules, they just are, and you have to live by them.  I personally wouldn't care if the teller at the bank was wearing a t-shirt and shorts instead of a shirt and tie, but that's the societal expectation, so it is what it is.  I'd prefer not to have to wear a suit to job interviews, but if I want a shot at the job, I realize that it's an expectation.

Kids might as well start learning whats going to be expected of them after they get out of school while they're in school, which includes wearing appropriate clothes, being appropriately groomed, not playing with their phones while someone is speaking to them or conducting a lecture, speaking in proper English instead of slang, and generally conducting themselves with a sense of decorum.

Education is important, and should be taken seriously.

Kudos to the parents for just electing to take their child out. There really is no reason to ban a particularly ethnic hairstyle and even if they say it applies to students of all races, when your school is 99% black (fta) it's really just a smoke screen.

Many cultures across the sands of time have had dreads, so the school can say "no dreads" and not have it pertaining just to black people.  Dreads are are about as germane to African Americans as fried chicken is.

It is ok to protest rules, but it does not mean you are going to always get the answer you seek.

It is like the people who see the signs that say No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service, and insist on walking into the place anyway and get pissed when they get asked to leave.

That's the real determining factor: if this was specifically targeted at "black" hairstyles, or if all "fashionable" hairstyles were included in the ban.  Regardless of the merits of turning an entire school's student body into featureless samey cogs, having a restriction on hairstyles at a school which already has uniform requirements is not out of the realm of reason.

hubiestubert: Yup, Afros are SO faddish. I mean, who would think that a hairstyle that is natural, untreated, and chemically unaltered would be so popular with folks of African descent? I mean, obviously a hot comb, a flat iron, chemically straightened or relaxed hair, that is obviously much more professional, and thus they should likewise only allow paler folks to attend when they have had their hair permed or straightened as well, right?


Also this.  Afro is a hairstyle choice like blue eyes are an eye color "choice".  Sure, you can fake having either using cosmetic enhancements, but most people who have them just have it by nature.  You can keep an Afro trimmed short so it looks neat, but if you have that type of hair you're pretty much boned unless you shave your head.  It's also not just a black thing, as (just to start) quite a few people of Jewish descent can tell you.

yukichigai: TuteTibiImperes: I don't see a problem with it as long as they enforce the same standards against dumbass white person hair styles, so no mullets, mohawks, corn rows (well, that one's omni-racial nowadays), shaggy hair on boys, bowl cuts, spiked hair, etc.

That's the real determining factor: if this was specifically targeted at "black" hairstyles, or if all "fashionable" hairstyles were included in the ban.  Regardless of the merits of turning an entire school's student body into featureless samey cogs, having a restriction on hairstyles at a school which already has uniform requirements is not out of the realm of reason.

hubiestubert: Yup, Afros are SO faddish. I mean, who would think that a hairstyle that is natural, untreated, and chemically unaltered would be so popular with folks of African descent? I mean, obviously a hot comb, a flat iron, chemically straightened or relaxed hair, that is obviously much more professional, and thus they should likewise only allow paler folks to attend when they have had their hair permed or straightened as well, right?

Also this.  Afro is a hairstyle choice like blue eyes are an eye color "choice".  Sure, you can fake having either using cosmetic enhancements, but most people who have them just have it by nature.  You can keep an Afro trimmed short so it looks neat, but if you have that type of hair you're pretty much boned unless you shave your head.  It's also not just a black thing, as (just to start) quite a few people of Jewish descent can tell you.


Anglo-Saxons too. Bob Dylan for example

charmbomb: theflatline: charmbomb: Everyone that is like "IT SAYS NATURAL HAIR IN THE RULEZ. ZOMG LIBERUL RULE BREAKERZ!"

PSA: Dreds are natural for ethnic hair... not "faddish". Ethnic hair has been dreding all on it's lonesome probably longer than white people have been around. Yeah, they could straighten it, but it's not "natural". This is just silly. Flaming red curly hair on someone that isn't naturally a ginger isn't natural. Dreds on a white people hair isn't natural. But seriously, come the fark on. This is what her hair DOES NATURALLY.

people from many ethnic groups have worn dreadlocks, including many ancient Hamitic people of North Africa and East Africa (notably the Oromo of Ethiopia, and the Maasai of northern Kenya); Semitic people of West Asia; Indo-European people of Europe and South Asia (notably the ancient Spartan warriors of Greece, and the Sadhus of India and Nepal); Turkic people of Anatolia and Central Asia; the Sufi Rafaees; and the Sufi malangs and fakirs of Pakistan.

Don't farking bold at me mister, you can take that tone in the other room and no dinner for you.


ps: I think we are making the same point.


I personally blame black people who in many vacation tourist spots, approach white girls and offer to wrap up their silky white hair into knots.  They are selling out their culture.  You can't go three feet in Cartagena without it happening to you.

This bear is not a black bear, but he is rocking a big old fro.  He must be racist and trying to undermine the black mans culture.  That bear got himself a big old blow-out.
