    I went through the same thing at CE King in Houston , there is racial biases because it’s aimed at black males who wear braids , corn rolls , dreads etc , these are hair styles that aren’t commonly sported by whites or even Hispanics … the length of your hair has nothing to do with your education or performance as a student .. these systems of dress code as the rep from barbus hill explained have been in play for 90 years , if you don’t know , barbus hill is in a very rural part of the outskirts of Houston where the majority are white … it’s not like they have been a majority black school for 90 years … a dress code is implemented for uniform and security, what is uniform but to get everyone to look alike ? What is the threat of long dread locks ? None , so why is this a issue ? Because it’s racially biased

    no school should have the right to dictate to any kid what to do with the parts that extend from their bodies. as long as these kids keep their clean… the school needs to mind it’s own business.

    Don't cut anything! To be in band all you have to do is pin it up. That's all.

    I thought they were going to say they had to cut their hair because of the lice.Bob Marley had 26 species of lice when he died,and he was technically white.

    Fuck these racist cunts. If I'm allowed to have straight hair they should be allowed to have their natural and as long and they fucking want. Like Hell it's not about race. These kids are hurting nothing and no one.

    It’s dangerous, they could conceal a nuclear war head in those dreads on their head…it’ll be a war head on a head or a head with a war head ..or a war with two heads! It’s just to many heads with wardreads….ok I’m totally lost, what was this video about again?😌

    I went to High School in the 70s. Probably half the guys at my school had braided hair or afros. I'm almost 60 and have a good paying job and my company flies me everywhere representing them. No one ever said a word. My company doesn't care. But yet, America isn't going backwards…
    Riiiiight 🙄

    What's next , hair dragging on the floor , green blue yellow pink hair , it's always about statements,

    Just because no one has called it out over the years does not mean it isn't biased! It definitely is discrimination and most definitely biased!

    They are teens attending high school…it aint the military or the police force, what does the length of hair have to do with education?

  26. Avatar

    lol I went through the same thing @ WORK!!! I have both my ears pierced as well, I said, ok I'd cut them and remove my earrings as soon as ALL THE WOMEN IN THE COMPANY DID THE SAME!!! and it was never mentioned again… it's racial discrimination, try it, it's an easy fix lol

    Ridiculous. Anyone should be able to wear their hair they want to. That is not distracting hair.

    Forcing somebody to cut their hair is like telling a girl she cant have her period. Smh

    Justify why this policy is in effect. Otherwise let these two young men get on with their lives.

    Those white students can have long hair I’m sure, it can’t be about the length, they need to go to court and g eat this straightened out.
