Folks all over twitter are talking about a young lady in Louisiana right now who was just expelled at the beginning of the school year from Christ the King middle school after saying her braids were an 'unnatural' hair style.
Check out the video below & some reactions from outraged folks on social media.
It just happened again.— Shaun King (@shaunking) August 21, 2018
Christ The King Middle School in Gretna, Louisiana expelled this beautiful young Black girl saying that her hair style was "unnatural."
She was humiliated and removed from the school over it.
Let's be clear - this is Christianity as White Supremacy. pic.twitter.com/22IIKD9UCk
I don't condone cutting or policing any kind of hair, but surfer hair & black hair are not the same thing! This is not policing fashion! This is policing identity. They've forced black girls & women to erase their identity by making black hair illegal or against the rules!— verse (@VerseofaRose) August 21, 2018
I wonder what the school administrators think is "natural"? Methinks they'd find a way to object to this too... pic.twitter.com/PEQ46jUvWy— Bernadette Morrow (@bern821) August 21, 2018
This is pissing me off to no end. There is nothing unnatural about braids. She has been shamed for nothing. She looks lovely and perfect. Shame on these idiotic adults. Cut it out.— Patricia Arquette (@PattyArquette) August 21, 2018
The school now admits that this hairstyle does not violate any rule in their handbook, but says that they made a new rule this summer to prohibit it.— Shaun King (@shaunking) August 21, 2018
I kid you not.
They made a rule in the summer of 2018 to prohibit THIS hairstyle. https://t.co/tZv0Wsbkcu
