I agree with Foxy regarding if you feel so strongly about it, you should not come for the ppl on this board, but rather try to solve the real issue. I can think the child's hair looks bad, but I would not and could not keep her out of class because of it. I personally don't know if the girl's hair is cute or not, I didn't watch the vid, but I will say that as a child of a single father I KNOW I went to school many a time with my hair JACKED. My teacher once asked me who does my hair in a not so nice tone. Yes sometimes I was teased, but I can't fathom being kicked out of school for it. I was a straight A student and my dad did everything for us, but there was times that he dropped the ball in our appearance department (we were some overweight lil ones, and sometimes out hair was jacked). But in the same token, it was a public school.

If her hair was properly cared for the school would not have been the issue.  Preventative Maintenance.

I hate when people make children cry.. I'm glad he took it to the news instead of whipping some azz because I don't know if I could've contained myself. Sad that this little girl feels that she's "bad" or should be ashamed of something that naturally grows out of her head. I don't think her hair looks bad: With little ones, their hair gets out of place so quickly after the running and playing they do everyday, and you can't contain every nap or bead no matter how much you try without stopping them from being kids. I said something a few years back about unkempt hair and I regret it.

I truly hate this country for conditioning us to believe that naps and natural hair is wrong and dirty and having other blacks inflict the same hurt that we get from outsiders (off topic).. Just sad..

I thought the school had a policy against locks. How do you know her hair wasn't properly cared for: Was it dirty? Did it smell? Did she have lice?

I just read the school policy. It said "faddish" hairstyles.. Locs are not a "faddish" hairstyle, nor is an afro Confused. Yeah, I'm going to have to disagree with you on this one..

Black Adults Need to Stop Spewing Anti-Black Rhetoric at Children

Sheryl Underwood's disparaging comments about kinky hair jogged Danielle C. Belton's memory about the negative things she's heard black adults say to black children about their features. In a piece at Clutch magazine, Belton stresses the importance of grown folk not giving black children inferiority complexes about their brown complexions or hair texture. 

The people who told me I was “bad” were not my parents, they were individuals like an old, hateful black elementary school library aide I had while growing up who regularly told us children (all black) how “bad” we were and how nappy our hair was and how that was awful and how the white children she taught at the other schools were much better, nicer, prettier children than us. They were people like some of the men I dated when I was much younger who would tell me they would break up with me if I ever cut my long, chemically straightened hair. My personality didn’t matter, nor were my face or charms. They dating a headful of hair -- not me. And the hair had to stay.

Some folks on Twitter have asked who taught Sheryl Underwood to “hate herself.” More than likely she doesn’t see it that way like most people who’ve internalized that certain aspects of blackness are simply “bad.” She’s confused at the response she’s received because she was only stating the status quo, saying what others usually say in private to their daughters who go natural. What’s usually only heard by some grandmothers snickering about how your hair isn’t “good” enough to go natural, as if the 1970s and afros never happened. Mothers worrying about your “looks.” Strangers on the street, classmates and co-workers all passing judgment -- does having natural hair make you some kind of radical? A feminist? A socialist? Did you just get dumped? Do YOU hate yourself for not straightening your hair, they imply?

Read Danielle C. Belton's entire piece at  Clutch magazine.

Agreed.  I don't get why afros are considered a faddish style either.  The f*ck wrong with the founder?  Nvm, I saw her pic and it looks as though a lot is wrong.

Of course the problem is the school it's two separate issues really.
I don't know why people are having problems separating the two thoughts .
The school is wrong [ Independent thought]
Daddy doesn't know how to style his daughters hair , like most men.[ Independent thought ]
Sigh ...
