Girl Sent Home because of ‘Natural’ Hair
A school in Tulsa, Oklahoma sent home a 7 year old girl in tears because of for her so called ‘faddish’ hair, which according to their policy includes dreadlocks, afros and Mohawks.
The girl`s father, Terrance Parker, told a local news station, that he was forced to pull his daughter out of the Deborah Brown Community School, after administrators hassled the family about his daughter Tiana`s appearance… meaning her hair.
Parker, who’s a barber, said school officials at Deborah Brown told him that Tiana’s hair didn’t look presentable.
Tiana`s new school has no problem with her `natural` locks.
The kicker: the school principal is a black woman with a curly wig 🙂
