Reply to "Kentucky High School’s Racist Hair Policy That Bans ‘Dreadlocks, Cornrolls, and Twists’ Sparks Controversy"

Initially, the majority of head shaving came out of African cultures going back to Kemet, that viewed hair as 'unclean'.  

In some environments, hair was probably a nuisance that merely gave parasites somewhere to live, therefore was shaven or kept short.

Also, with the invasion into Africa of "Islam", many Africans were bound by [or came to be influenced by] Islamic religious and cultural ignorance that views the hair as "sexual".  

Still, other African cultures view a shaved head on a woman as feminine, rather than the Western opposite view of women's hair.  

But, for a school to require girls to have their heads shaved merely because they feel that the girls are "fussing" too much over their hair is ridiculous, as ridiculous as viewing the hair on a person's head as "sexual".  I mean, they shouldn't be punished for being girls.

There are so many people in the world who are just evil, sadistic, psychos, and unfortunately, there are also too many people in the the world that allow these people to 'be in charge', to rule, to make the rules, to decide the culture .  .  . and sadly, women and girls, children usually wind up bearing the brunt of their ignorance and/or their their pathology.
