Tatum, TX

On Tuesday August 12th, Michael Trimble's grandmother was called into school to meet with the principal and his teacher because there was a question on male dress code they wished to addressed. Once there she was told that his hair was too long that she could either cut it or keep it braided. She asked why her grandson wasn't allowed to wear his natural state hair they then explained that it could possibly be a DISTRACTION!!!  Then she requested to speak to the Superintendent of Schools, at that point he explained the exact same thing. Then asked him about the trans gender students in the same school district,  he proceeded to tell her that they are guarded by the federal law. Basically meaning that a boy student can wear a dress on the first day of school and continue to wear dresses throughout the school year, because that student has started a transition into a female lifestyle. But her four-year-old grandson who is wearing his natural hair is a distraction. Randi, his grandmother then had his hair braided..guess what?? Now that's a problem too. Fast forward to yesterday..she's now being asked to pin his hair up. When will the racial discrimination and injustice towards our sons, brothers, uncles, husbands, and friends stop. Really a four year old boy. We need to be his voice. Please lend your signature to this petition to tell Tatum, Texas we will not be bullied into cutting his hair.
