It is literally impossible to imagine any non-racist rationale school administrators could use to dictate Black hairstyles.

The issue does not even begin to feel complicated for me.

Likewise, I cannot imagine any non-sexist or non- homophobic rationale school administrators could use to try to control the length or style of boys' hair.

School administrators need to stay out of the field of social control and concentrate on education.
