Ohio School Bans Afro Puffs and Braids

my question to the school administration is this: how many of you would like to volunteer to go to the homes of these little black girls and fix their hair in a style that is “suitable” for you? if they were to ban beads, plastic hair clips, bubbles, etc., i might understand some sort of justification behind that. but afro puffs? these are literally the equivalent of ponytails for individuals with kinky or curly hair. how do you look at children and tell them that their hair texture, the way that God makes their hair grow from their scalp, is against your small-minded regulation? this is insensitive and ignorant. words cannot even describe how livid i am after reading this.
