i don’t see a blk kid...nor do I see blk hair that would be difficult for white people to care for...

A school district in central Michigan is in hot water after two White staff members secretly butchered the hair of a biracial first grader. Jimmy Hoffmeyer was shocked to see his seven-year-old daughter walk through the door on March 26. His daughter’s curly hair was chopped within inches of her scalp; the work of women who clearly didn’t have the first idea of how to care for the hair of a Black child.

It was just two days after the Hoffmeyer family had to deal with an unfortunate haircutting incident on the school bus. On March 24, Jurnee Hoffmeyer was on the bus heading home from Ganiard Elementary School in Mount Pleasant, Mich. when a classmate cut her hair. Jurnee’s long curly hair was cut several inches on one side to around shoulder length. When she got home that day, her family was stunned to see what had happened. But Jurnee’s father took her straight to the salon and let her choose a new look.

School staff cuts child’s hair without father’s permission​

“I know how today’s society is,” Hoffmeyer said. “I wasn’t going to let my little girl go to school with half of her hair cut off.” Jurnee was upset, but she felt good about being able to choose a new style. Hoffmeyer reached out to the school administration and transportation offices to figure out what happened. He was upset but simply asked that the child not be allowed to sit next to his daughter again.

Hoffmeyer emailed Jurnee’s teacher, Kristen Jacobs, to let her know he was filing a police report. Minutes later, he said, the principal’s secretary called him. He recalled the secretary saying she was in “utter disbelief.” But the principal would not be available to talk to him until after spring break – a week later.

I wonder why the mom isn’t talking this issue?
Civil suits also need to be filed. That poor baby.
From the teacher to the superintendent is wrong af.
That teacher would be given a first class haircut by my daughter.

After the kids cut her hair the first time they should have taken her out of there because clearly that school ain’t for her even tho she barely looks black

So schools are in the business of giving haircuts these days? Black, White, bi-racial, purple, or cyan, it doesn’t matter...why are folks cutting children’s hair and why was the father so lax after the initial incident?

Poor baby. They are SO wrong for this. Look at how sad she is.

If I were her parents, I'd be raging. Why do people let their children get repeatedly victimized like this?

Racists frequently see these children as black, even if we don't (she might have been the only person in the entire school with a modicum of black ancestry). And racists are gonna racist and claim "they didn't know". People learn how to do what they want to - they were lazy and hateful and this is their excuse.

Also, the parents let this happen. They were probably living some color blind lie until it couldn't be ignored. Poor kid.

Wait so y’all read this story about happened about to this CHILD, and all you focus on is whether to call her black or the fact that she is biracial???? Y’all need help. This kid is clearly traumatized.
To be fair, most people responded to the issue at hand, and to be honest the title is kind of confusing.

What I still don’t understand is who exactly cut her hair the second time and why? Isn’t it weird how they glossed over that in the article? Why would a staff member feel the need to cut her hair after the first incident?

Where is any of this stated? They identify her as biracial.

The father is not even black. He's definitely trying to get black people, particularly women riled up.

There was an incident BEFORE on the school bus. That was the time to act. Scissors are dangerous and they could have harmed the child physically.

While the father didn't, the article defined her as "black". Did you read this article? LOL.

The dad is biracial and the child is 0.25 black so the child is a quadroon like Halle berry daughter or drake son or tiger wood kids, Meagan Markle son Archie or tamera housely children. He is using the word black to garner attention to this incident.

sorry but black people do not get to pick and choose their race when it is convenient. I feel no sympathy for him and his own. This is not a black issue rather this is a non black issue and he is piggybacking her 0.25% black to bring awareness to this incident which to me is disgusting. I bet at no other times does he and his wife considered those kids black and rightfully so because those kids are white children.

this is what happens when you apply the 1 drop rule to everyone: mainly black people get use and abuse.

OP got me too confused by posting just half of the story.. Click on the link to read the rest. The teachers cut her hair two days after the initial incident.

Since white women have more institutional power, I'm curious why this is a black issue, when it could be taken up by whites mostly.

I'm sure they can handle their own better.
