The sole purpose of school dress codes, and especially hairstyle restrictions, is to create one more way for teachers and administrators to arbitrarily punish children.

Okay.  So are they really telling Becky she can't have a ponytail or French braid or no pigtails?
Also. Reason 900 that Texas sucks 🍆
Also, even cornrows are banned. WTF?

I think the elaborate braided hairstyles black women wear are quite beautiful.  I wish I could braid my own hair that way. When I was in boot camp, a black girl french-braided my hair so I wouldn't have to mess with it in the morning. It was so tight it stayed up for four days. I was a bit jealous of the girls who could wear the same set of braids for the duration. Putting hair up super fast early in the morning was a pain in the butt.

Hey at least its not Japan where they have really farked up dress codes.
Underwear has to be white.
A Girl is suing, because her Natural hair color violates the dress code and they keep forcing her to dye her hair.
Yes girls in Japan are being punished for having been born with the wrong hair color....

That was the case for a teen attending Kaifukan Prefectural High School in the town of Habikino, Osaka Prefecture. The girl enrolled in 2015, and was repeatedly told that she had to dye her brown hair black. The girl insisted that brown was her natural hair color, but the school says that three different teachers examined the roots of the girl's hair and found them to be black, which they took as proof that she had been coloring her hair.

Is it racist if it's true?

Like, if I point out that Black people are more likely to talk loudly during movies, I'm definitely looking for trouble, but it's not racist. It's just an observation informed by more than four decades of movie attendance.

I probably just stepped in it, but who knows, this could be fun.

Nothing new. While living in Texas...Beaumont..I attended the newly at that time formed West Brook high school. I was sent home on various occasions for
1 My hair was over my collar
2. I had a 5 o clock shadow at 10am. I had a really dark and full beard by 13. Even right after shaving I still had the "shadow". I had to walk in to the principals office at 930 and dry shave in front of him just to prove it once and for all. AFTER I had been sent home 3 times to shave on different occasions. Then ordered into in school suspension 4 more times
3. I put a stud earring in my ear and promptly received a 5 day vacation

All of this was mid 1980s.

When I was in the Navy in the '70s, one of the enlisted guys on the submarine got into trouble for wearing an "afro".  The engineering officer that was leaning on him also had an Afro, but that was a-okay as the engineer identified as black. The enlisted guy identified as white, but both of them could have passed either way.

While the lawsuit is still ongoing, opponents of school policies requiring students to dye their natural hair in order to look more like it isn't dyed to unaccustomed eyes can celebrate one victory. On July 30, Hiroki Komazaki, head of children and family advocacy NPO Florence, presented a petition to the Tokyo Metropolitan Board of Education. The petition, which had collected 19,065 signatures since May, asked that schools be prohibited from instructing naturally non-black-haired students to dye their hair, and the board gave its word that the request will be met, with High School Educational Guidance Section head Seiichi Sato saying"We will not direct students with natural non-black hair to dye their hair black.
While Sato's stance is a welcome step in the direction of greater tolerance, it's worth keeping in mind that it's public schools that the Tokyo Metropolitan Board of Education has administrative control over, and so the board's promise to prohibit educators from forcing students to dye their hair black may or may not carry much weight at private schools in Tokyo.

You were saying?

So you move your kid to a school with dress code requirements, make no attempt to meet those requirements, complain about how those requirements are unfair.
Sounds about right.

One thing that a lot of melanin challenged people don't seem to understand is how much of a pain in the arse it is to work with African American hair. Starts out like anybody else's hair when wet only to turn into a wiry mess as it dries. Many of those typically classified as "Black" hairstyles were designed specifically to deal with pain in the arse hair to make it look good and keep it manageable.

Banning those styles is a clueless racist dick move.

To concur with your statement, i spent well over a decade trying to get my kids not to talk loudly during movies. I gave up. As my youngest's intelligence, wit, and delivery has grown over the years, I now welcome her movie comments. She really does make comedies funnier and bad horror movies hilarious.

And as a white person: white people all be frightened easily ain't wrong.
