: East Texas school district tells boy to cut his hair or wear a dress. This is 2019 isn't it?
He looks like he could be American Indian or a mix of American Indian and African American. His hair texture is not unknown among Muskogee peoples such as the Alabama-Coushatta tribe, Houma, Choctaw, Chickasaw and Muskogee Creek. Texas started out its independence from Mexico trying to help the Cherokee with a reservation there, but has become a place of little hope. Ironic for a state named after a word for "Peace" in a Native American language. It is well known among American Indians that the further west one goes, the more tension there is against Native Americans and American Indians. I wonder if some of that is at play here. I hope the grandmother wins her case in court.
