Please share! There needs to be change! Abeka Christian Academy @abekahomeschool @connectpcc is not allowing my son to walk across the stage for his high school graduation because of his locs. This is our culture.... this is who we are! This is the sad world we live in. JACOB @bluwjayarts is a straight A student, very talented young man. And for him to have to cut his locs for a standard graduation is horrible

Abeka Academy is not a diverse establishment. God created many nations. Racism shines very brightly at Abeka! My son has worked very diligently this year and to get the news that his senior picture shows that he has "Locs,"
disqualifies him from marching unless he cuts them. This is very inhumane! This is his culture, this how God made him. Braids, afros, Loc are the ways Africa Americans wear their hair. Hair has been the history of how Anglo Saxons "Coloized Slaves," by shaving, or cutting their Locs before taking them to the "Plantation." Or making the women tie up their hair to hide their Afro. This is sickning to see Abeka accept this "Colonizing behavior and mentality. A hairstyle does not represent the destination of a persons soul. Even Samson in the bible had Locs. This is the history that won't be told of how African American people were rejected. There has always been rejection due to not only the color of our skin but our hair as well. I truly regret having to face something like this in 2022 but it shows that Racism is still alive! Everyone won't fit the straight hair blue eye experiment. History seems to repeat it self and the generation cycle continues of how other races should only fit the Anglo Saxon rubric. If the other race can't see where this is a form of Racism then they are part of the problem! I'm so glad God see the heart of man unlike man he will only see the outward appearance! @kaepernick7 @shaunking
