I would say that adding this to the school policy would be a massive achievement at stepping forward

I am signing this because I would love to see people able to celebrate and enjoy their natural hair characteristics without prejudice. To see black women with receding hairlines and bald patches as the result of overuse of chemicals to attempt to achieve the straightness of (some) caucasian hair is awful.

Afro hair Braids are not extreme hairstyles! This policy is discriminatory and needs to end.

School policy is dated.. They need to change with the times, and make allowances for other cultural backgrounds..where need be they make changes so not to offend certain faiths, usually because there scared of the back lash..Let's get things changed..

Aside from the fact this is outrageous for all the reasons mentioned by the petitioner, it's also simply very ignorant. Braiding black and mixed race hair is actually a NECESSARY 'protective' style to encourage hair growth and protect the hair follicles, and is a necessity that white hair types don't require. It's not simply about how it looks, it's a 'cultural hairstyle' not because it's cool or looks trendy, but because within that culture that style actually has a function for that hair type. As do hair wraps, head scarves and bandannas, twists, tight knots and braids and corn rows. They ALL function to protect the hair, which is much drier and much more prone to frizz and damage than the hair of most white people - which is why these things are all prevalent amongst the black and mixed race community.
