Is This White Girl Being ‘Racially Profiled’ For Her Dreadlocks? – MTV

To respond to the headline, no.  She’s not being racially profiled; she’s being conformity-profiled.

But yes, this is cultural appropriation and yes this is just another clueless teenage white dork and yes her mother verges on racism.  Isn’t the most important question:  why the hell does the school care about this girl’s hair?   If schools focused the attention on education that they focus on girls’ spaghetti-strap dresses and boys’ Mohawk haircuts, they could teach important things like math and reading and judgment and a sense of what is important in the world and what is window-dressing.  And when to ignore the clueless dorks and just get on with your mission.
