Can you believe that a high school is making African-American kids remove their African Headwraps because it is against school policy? Last time I checked, African Headwraps don’t harm anyone. They shouldn’t offend anyone. And they only give black kids a sense of pride.
But I guess giving a black kid sense of pride is just a little too much. I swear, this country is going to hell in a hand basket one day. To no avail, you can’t silence black people for too long. The way that these kids responded is amazing.
Are you impressed with their response? You have to admit that seeing these kids unify is beautiful. I hope that kids around the nation see this sorry and decided to unify against injustices that are done to them on a daily basis.
