• Shock: White Teen Says School Dress Code Is Racist

    A small private school in Utah reportedly told one of its eighth-grade students to remove her dreadlocks. The student and her mother are now speaking out against the school’s orders, which they’re calling racist and anti-religious.

    Caycee Cunningham returned to Lincoln Academy after studying abroad in Guatemala and decided to grow dreadlocks.

    The young teen is exploring her “Hindu beliefs” and she considers the dreads as a part of her “spiritual journey.” Lincoln Academy’s dress code, however, prohibits the look and school administrators have asked that she cut them off.

    Caycee’s mother, Tonya Judd  says she doesn’t believe her daughter’s hair is a distraction and claims that the demand is racist, discriminatory and anti-religious.

    “Not only have they been racially profiling my daughter because she happens to be a while girl with dreadlocks, but it’s also taking away the rights of my daughter’s religious beliefs and her spiritual journey,” Judd said.

    Neither mother nor daughter are willing to abide by the school’s request, and have even threatened to transfer to another institution.
