The conspiracy continues!
I came across this story over the weekend and I was once again SHOCKED [at America] at the continued STUPIDITY and underlying schemes and agenda of the so called “higher ups” who feel the need to humiliate, and garnish the history of “black people”. We already see the “transformations” of who we need to become to be a “celebrity” and now our children are being targeted for the way they look. Why?
It is reported that a school in Cleveland, Ohio [Horizon Science Academy] has issued a ban on “African American” students hairstyle. The ban specifies that “Afro Puffs” [a well known hairstyle worn by many “black young girls” across the globe] is not prohibited nor is “Small Twisted Braids” permitted.
According to blackgirllonghair.com here’s the ruling on the dress code for the upcoming 2012-2014 school year [slated to begin September of 2013]
“Afro-puffs and small twisted braids, with our without rubberbands, are NOT permitted.”
“It’s unclear what the administration means by small twisted braids, but if they are referring to box braids they are banning a protective style that black girls have worn for generations. Afro-puffs are essentially the black version of the ponytail (when pulled back our hair puffs out instead of laying down), and yet the rules do not have a ban on ponytails for students of other ethnicities.”
It’s unspecified whether this ban applies to both male and female students, or male students alone.
Sidebar: To suggest such a thing is “RACIST”. As if a person’s hairstyle has anything to do with their learning capabilities in a classroom setting. Moreover, to suggest that “African American” students wear their hair in a more straight and layed down look – suggests that “young black girls” must conform their look to that of other “acceptable cultures” and by doing so would also suggest that “chemical perms” [which are known to be “deadly to natural “kinky afro hair”] be used to achieve such look. What are these”school administrators” really up to?
The Root reached out to a representative of Horizon Science Academy and was told the following:
“We have about 15 different schools in the state of Ohio” and had “no idea” which campus was responsible for the alleged letter. The rep could not provide the information or an academy spokesperson to provide a comment.”
Here’s the actual letter of proof that was sent to parents
