Navajo Kindergartner Sent Home from School, Ordered to Cut His Hair
On Monday, a 5-year-old Native American boy was sent home on his first day of school and ordered to cut his hair short because it allegedly violated district policy, the boy’s mother said.
The child, Malachi Wilson, an enrolled citizen of the Navajo Nation, had been looking forward to his first day of kindergarten at F.J. Young Elementary in Seminole, Texas.
I AM SEETHING. FUCK THE CONTINUATION OF ASSIMILATION EFFORTS AND ASSAULT ON THE PHYSICAL, MENTAL, EMOTIONAL, AND SPIRITUAL WELL-BEING OF NATIVE AND INDIGENOUS PEOPLE.
THIS COUNTRY HAS NO SHAME
NO HISTORICAL BEARING
HAS AMERICA FORGOTTEN SO SOON?
THE TRAGEDY OF NATIVE CHILDREN FORCED TO LEAVE THEIR HOMES FOR RACIST BOARDING SCHOOLS?
WHERE THEIR HAIR WAS CUT? WHERE CHILDREN WERE BEATEN FOR SPEAKING THEIR MOTHER TONGUES? WHERE THEY WERE ABUSED AND FORCED TO HIDE THEIR CULTURE AS A WAY TO SURVIVE?
NEVER FORGET. NEVER.
Starting a new weekly feature called Whitey of the Week! And here is our first winner!
Meet this honky hippie: a “Wiccan faerie” that goes under the username vunl with the blog title “Swing Low, Sweet Luna”. This assorted box of crackers with some pepper (the pepper is her “colored” side) is a half white woman mixed with “Portuguese, Egyptian, Moroccan, Arabic, and Australian aboriginal”. This is a part of her frustration when we called her out on her hair, which looks like this:
And she cannot see how angry we are of what she is doing? She believes her matted tangles of car hairballs glued together with dog lint to be dreads, and associates such… locks with her “carefree” lifestyle, as all honky hippies do. This is the most evident to prove that this woman has no idea what she is doing or even what dreadlocks really are, represent or associate with.
Here is a piece of her response to when we called her out on her blatant ignorance and degrading of Black culture and those who are Indian Yogis:
Your views on ‘white’ people vs. ‘your’ people is just being racist, which I’m assuming you’re trying to fight against? And if you are, you are fighting against racism in the most ridiculous way possible. But who knows, maybe you aren’t. Maybe you are openly racist. Either way, it’s not my problem whether you are or not. My problem is that you are publicly saying hurtful and very judgmental things not only about me, but many others. I hope light gets shed onto you. I’m sure you’re nice deep down in that judgemental mind of yours, you just need to figure out what’s actually important in life. Saying I’m appropriating your culture is beyond unimportant. Go eat a carrot or something.
How does one be “Arabic”? Its a language.

shoutout to all the girls + women who have thick, dark, and abundant body hair and have to spend time and energy shaving every single day if they don’t want to be harassed by loved ones + strangers alike
shoutout to all the girls + women who decided its not worth their time, even if they only skip sometimes, and endure criticism, harassment, and stigma as the price for their own freedom of time + comfort
