“It’s not about race! It’s about neatness.”

When you tell a black child that the state of their natural hair is not neat what else are you saying about blackness? Are you saying that to be black and neat does not go hand in hand? Are you saying that unless you chemically straighten your hair to match what caucasians achieve naturally, then you can never be neat? Are you saying that blackness is against the school’s code of conduct? Are you saying that a code of conduct can be above the Constitution?

Have you lost your mind?
