Girl Bullied Because of Natural Hair, School Threatens to Expel Her

School Threatens to Expel Black Girl Being Bullied Over Natural Hair

A Florida school believes it has found the perfect solution to the problem of a Black student being bullied over her natural hair: Kick her out.

Vanessa VanDyke, 12, says administrators at Faith Christian Academy, a private school in Orlando, have deemed her hair a "distraction" after she complained about being teased by other students. "There have been bullies in the school," Vanessa's mother Sabrina told Local 6 News. "There have been people teasing her about her hair, and it seems to me that they're blaming her." According to Sabrina, her daughter had been going to school with the same hair for months, but was only labeled a "distraction" after the issue of bullying was brought before school officials.

Those officials have now given Vanessa two options: Cut and style her hair, or face expulsion.
