Thank you! I was wondering what I'm supposed to say when I'm doing, for example, face painting and a child wants to be a jungle animal.... Am I supposed to not allow any jungle animal faces or worse only for certain kids? How do you explain to a 6 year old sorry I know your buddy Henry has his face painted like a leapord but you don't get to because you're a black kid?One of my daughter's best friends has half of her hair shaved , in a cheetah pattern, just like that. The other side is long.
She has also hah it shaved in zebra pattern, and had words or symbols shaved. She loves it and gets lots of compliments. She is African American and no one has said it is inappropriate to shave it that way.
I am not sure we can point to the women and accuse them of anything nefarious here...the boys may have chosen it themselves at the barber shop. It is a common hair adornment.
I'm not trying to perseverate, just asking since it's still bring talked about (jungle hair cuts).
