*The nerve! Daycare providers at Little Heroes Group Home in Connecticut decided THEY wanted the hair of a little bi-racial girl to grow back “straight” so they shaved her head…
…without her parents consent.
When Denise Robinson, the 7-year-old girls’ mother, told the school that she was unhappy about their action the excuse became “hygienic.”
“Tru was assaulted yesterday at school and anyone who knows me know that I never claim racism — But why was my daughter’s head shaved?”
“There are three other girls in her class, two white girls, one black, none of these girls got scaled. Why Tru??” Richardson wrote on Facebook.
“My child is mixed race and her hair WAS FULL and curly… She DID NOT AND I REPEAT [NOT] HAVE HEAD LICE OR BUGS!! SO WHY DID THIS HAPPEN?” she added.
The facility, a behavioral school that Tru attends part time, put out some weak ass statement obviously designed to cover their butts.
As if using the word DIVERSITY will make everything OK, the school put out a statement that read…
“The program employs a diverse staff that is attentive to the needs of all children. Decisions regarding grooming are based on a variety of factors, including hygiene,” it stated.
“A review of the circumstances is underway to determine what occurred and, if necessary, appropriate action will be taken.”
Robinson has since taken legal action against the facility.
