From the Daily Mail:

‘It should have never been done’: Michigan father furious after student cuts his seven-year-old biracial daughter’s hair, only for white library teacher to cut the rest days later to ‘even it out’

By HOLDEN WALTER-WARNER FOR DAILYMAIL.COM

PUBLISHED: 10:24 EDT, 20 April 2021 | UPDATED: 16:35 EDT, 20 April 2021

A seven-year-old Michigan girl has been pulled from her elementary school after a student cut some of her hair without permission, only for a teacher to cut the rest off days later in a separate incident.

Jurnee Hoffmeyer, who is biracial, was riding the bus March 24 when a classmate with scissors, who is white, cut most of her hair on one side of her head, she claimed to her father. …

Hoffmeyer followed up with the school and was told the library teacher wouldn’t receive any discipline more than a note in her work file, at most.

Hoffmeyer claimed the principal tried to get the incident to disappear without issuing more serious discipline.

‘She kept asking me what she could do to make it go away,’ Hoffmeyer said of the school’s principal.

The district superintendent called Hoffmeyer a week later offering to mail out apology cards, a call he angrily hung up on.

Meanwhile, the library teacher has not been publicly identified.

Hoffmeyer ultimately filed a report with local police, although they have not yet followed up on his complaint.

Hoffmeyer is biracial, as are his three daughters, while his wife, Christie, is white.

A school board meeting about the incident was held Monday night, though it’s unclear if there was any resolution to the issue.

‘Just got done with the school board meeting … I must say I couldn’t be more proud and thankful of all the love and support my family received from our community and others from all around the world,’ Christie Hoffmeyer posted on Facebook.

During the school board meeting, one person noted the seriousness of cutting the hair of a Black or biracial child.

‘I feel like you don’t quite understand the impact of hair on the Black community or how serious this matter actually goes,’ one person said during the board meeting, according to UpNorthLive.

Only iSteve readers are aware of just how serious World War Hair really is.

    Xi Jinping is thinking — This is the USA that thinks it can stop us from hijacking Taiwan? From dominating, from calling the shots in the South China sea?
    Putin will be thinking, what can demilitarized and gelded Europeans and the US do if we make moves on the Ukraine? Are their trannyized forces capable of doing anything besides firing a few popguns?

    If these two want to get rid of the US Dollar as the world’s prime reserve currency, just inflict a few military defeats.

    Cutting a little girl’s hair without permission is *cruel* as hair is important to a female’s sense of femininity. Many females value hair the way men value their genitals. Yes, hair grows back but depending on the length, it can take YEARS.

    That boy on the bus was mean as sin. He is someone who likes to inflict humiliation on females. I would not be surprised if he grew up to become a sex criminal.

    The librarian? She really should have known better. As a former teacher, I cannot imagine cutting a child’s hair without parental permission. And I wouldn’t do it WITH parental permission, either, but tell the parent to take the girl to a salon.

    Some of the Muslim doggerel scriptures (Hadith) claim Muhammed dyed his beard red. Thus you have some Muslim men doing this. Same as the two in the photos you posted.

    I have to say, AD, I agree with you here. I just came across a comment in a Newsweek article about this nothingburger (yes, Newsweek, which used to be a sort of decent source of actual news), and there was a comment by a nice white Mommy who supported the father unconditionally, as a parental rights issue.

    Then she wrote, “This isn’t about race.”

    Of course, it’s about race, it’s always about race, and there’s always a Nice White Lady to say it isn’t, and to use chivalry and the regard we all have for mothers to completely dominate everything and bamboozle everyone, and make it impossible for anyone to mount an effective response to these continual outrages

    (With respect to the father and his damned parental rights, it’s not a big deal, teachers have more leeway to deal with kids than bus drivers, and he’s got a right to be ticked off but yes, it’s about race.).

  15. anonymous[139] • Disclaimer says:

    A black haircut is national news. They’ll be looking to get paid. Why would a teacher want to even out a student’s hair anyway? Seems rather strange from this distance. Perhaps the teacher thought she was doing the child a favor? The parents are the ones who should be taking care of it, not some teacher. As this example shows, blacks are expert complainers. Stay far away for your own good.

    These diverse malcontents causing social disruption and destroying social cohesion don’t just get amplified for no reason.

    Librarian not yet doxxed

    Librarian should be terminated for stupidity, for thinking there was anything at all she could do or say to a black person that would be considered “correct.” Whatever you say or do to a black person is always wrong, no matter what. It’s best to keep the conversation to a minimum.

    I wonder if the girl’s white mother is allowed to cut her hair, or if black dad insisted on doing a shitty job of it because whites don’t have the right to touch black hair, even if that white person is the mother.

    Speaking of doxxing, here in Utah we recently had the thrill of a local news reporter going to the house of a West Valley City paraemdic – and showing the house on TV – to question him about his $10 donation to Kyle Rittenhouse’s legal defense fund.

    Shit’s just getting crazier.

    “Operation Bête Noire” (literally), is more like it.

    Fathomless stupidity to get involved with any negro in any way. Poor Officer Chauvin had no choice, but this moron did. Only consolation is if she’s an anti-White White. Especially after the sickening reaction to the verdict today. All those White idiots need maximum exposure to their dusky idols, and let nature take its course.

    Yes, because there are so many darn librarians at each elementary school. You can’t really tell them apart, the white ones, anyway.

    Remind me again, how much privacy does the nobility grant to the serfs under Jim Snow? Actually, don’t bother, I’ll have my answer from the NYT and CBS News, tomorrow.

    Lester Holt devoted 15 minutes of this evening’s NBC Nightly News to celebrating the Chauvin verdict. Perhaps Karen Book hopes that the Upper Class Media won’t have enough column-inches/minutes to fully dox her.

    More apropos yet is this scene from the start of the fight with the Russian school where the Russians sing the beginning of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Katyusha_(song) which that wiki page informs me became popular in the USSR during Operation Barbarossa.

    (Katyusha is also the name of the commander of that team, the short blond girl in the video)

    For those unaware of “Girls und Panzer”, in that world “sensha-do” is a cultural activity, like a sport or playing an instrument or flower arranging, but for women only. From an in-show high school team recruitment video:

    Sensha-do…

    This is tradition, this is culture, studied by girls from around the world to hone their character. They also study this martial art to hone their polite grace and their dignified femininity. Studying Sensha-do means studying what it means to be a woman. Hot and hard like steel. Lovable like the clatter of iron tracks. And of absolutely deadly passion like the main cannon. If you learn Sensha-do, you will be a good wife, a good mother, and successful in business. When your body and spirit are sound and indomitable, the goodwill of countless men is sure to be yours. Come now, let us all study Sensha-do and grow into beautiful, healthy women!

    It’s a cute premise but the levels of CTE probably put the NFL to shame! The show is good as light entertainment overall but there’s nothing deep going on; at least nothing i noticed. Think it’s on both Netflix and Hulu right now.

  25. “Jurnee Hoffmeyer?” Mudsharks of the world, don’t let your black babydaddy name your kids. It could be that the reason they don’t get call backs for interviews is that the employer assumes their parents are retarded. Also, what kind of boogie is named “Hoffmeyer?” Or ‘Lenny Kravitz?’

  26. Wilkey says:

    Hoffmeyer followed up with the school and was told the library teacher wouldn’t receive any discipline more than a note in her work file, at most.

    What’s sad about this is what it says about the growing litigiousness, atomization, and isolation in our society. This is a story that should, at worst, go down in the books as “Well-intentioned librarian makes honest mistake.” Instead it’s more likely to go down as “Racist librarian gets fired.”

    60 years or so ago most parents (and “parents” was almost always plural, as in both mother and father) would have had some small degree of relationship with their children’s teachers, and perhaps even moved in the same social circles – maybe attended the same church or the same civic organizations or whatever, and perhaps even lived in the same neighborhood. They usually came from the same racial background, and often from the same ethnic background. There was an implicit understanding of what was acceptable and what was not. This degree of community feeling would have moderated any conflict between teachers and parents.

    A teacher or librarian who cut their students hair to make up for a bad job by the parent would have, at worst, received a call from an annoyed parent. That was about it.

    By the time I was in elementary school these relationships were changing quickly, but still weren’t completely destroyed, and there was still some social solidarity left. I have fond memories of several of my teachers, my mother could recognize all of them on sight, and a few lived in my neighborhoods and – for the few years we lived in Utah – a few of them even attended our church (sometimes to my chagrin).

    More and more they aren’t from the same ethnic or racial backgrounds, don’t attend the same churches (and typically don’t attend church at all), and don’t live in the same neighborhoods – either the neighborhood is too rich for them to live in (especially since so many are unmarried) or too poor and crime ridden for them to want to live in.

    As usual we have feminism and “diversity” to thank for all of this. Hooray for social atomization.

  30. LadyTheo says:

    Having been a little girl at one time, and having watched a number of these “hair transgression” stories take place, here is my take:

    In the first instance, either the stupidly-named little girl cut her own hair or it was a team project–and figuring her parents would be upset, she turfed her friend under the bus.

    Then, she complained to the librarian that she didn’t like her new “asymmetrical” cut…and the librarian (idiotically) offered to help. In the face of her father’s displeasure, she then turfed the librarian under the bus.

    This is what the Mail alludes to when it notes that the school principal is not fully on board with the story as presented.

    This is the first thing I thought of — I think it’s more likely she cut it herself, although at that age it is possible the other kid actually did it.

    Nope. A in German is pronounced “ah,” not “eh” or “uh.”

    I guess you haven’t learned that all US females are raised to view males as either rapists or sexual predators. Maybe that’s why young females are attracted to and date the very males they’re told are dangerous to their well being.

    Something along the line of the preachers daughter turning into the whore of Babylon when they reach puberty. Just gotta find out what it’s all about.

    Obviously, according to JessicaR, a male child less than 10 years of age is already a sexual predator in her mind. I’m assuming he’s in the 6-9 age range since his age wasn’t given and they were probably all attending the same elementary school.

    Unternehmen Barbarossa was named after the Holy Roman Emperor Friedrich “Barbarossa” (yes, so named by the Italians for his read beard) – be that as it may Barbarossa in the context of the German invasion of the Soviet Union is pronounced in… German. I don’t think even the Italian pronunciation is all that different from the German in this case – a is still pronounced – more or less – as “ah, ” not “eh” or “uh.”

    Regardless of all that, I was not critiquing mispelling it “Barberossa” – I was laughing at the wordplay. I guess some people here didn’t get the joke – “Barber-rossa,” as in “barber” and haircut.

  39. @JessicaR

    Nah, he’s a seven year old kid. One of my friends in high school cut a big bald spot on the back of my head when I was asleep as a practical joke and he’s one of the nicest people I know. He would give you the shirt off his back. When your seven you do all kinds of stuff w/o thinking about the consequences for yourself or anyone else. Seven year olds are small children.

    In all fairness, America was already a “captured state” since 1871.

    Americans today, who are still true blue, got it so wrong. Information warfare started in WW1. We were all just pawns and collateral damage until Reagan and Trump. And, fuck you all – you all are just traitors who don’t understand this. Grow up – read some history – stop jerking off to Tick Tock.

  42. What kind of father allows his elementary school aged daughter’s name to be published in a news article? I guess he wants the world to know just how serious he is about gettin’ paid.

    I’m surprised no one else mentioned that ‘Jurnee’ is the name of the sister of hate hoaxer Jussie Smollett. This child would seem to have a very similar ethnic makeup to the Smollett kids. Though, it’s certainly possible the girl’s father had been adopted by Jewish parents, like, for instance, Althea Bernstein. Oh, shit, another hate hoaxer!!!

  43. @Wade Hampton

    A hair-crime enhancement.

    Plus, the kid’s not “bi-racial”, since race is a social construct. If “Jurnee” (eyeroll) combs her black side with her white side, is that a hair violation? Jus’ try’na keep up here.

    Which reminds me, why is it “Black or biracial”? Why not “Black or Biracial”?

    Precedence. But I think we need a new style of letters between upper and lower case. So biracial could be between Black and white. How can we expect everyone to know the score unless it is rubbed in all of our faces each and every day?

  46. ATBOTL says:

    In some formerly, white working class areas of the midwest, an incredible percentage of the children have black fathers and white mothers. There was a case involving some black on white crime in Ohio a few years ago, in a town that used to be all white. The news article mentioned that over 20% of the students in the local public elementary school were “multi-racial,” in a community with virtually no Hispanics or Asians.

    There was data a few years ago that over 4% of the children born to white women had black fathers. It must be higher now. That data showed that over 11% of the fathers of children born to white women had non-white fathers. So we have to lower the white birthrate from the stats by a factor of .11 to get the true white birth rate.

    As the ratio of blacks to whites continues to increase, there will be more black men chasing fewer white women. Blacks being dispersed into white communities by Section 8 public housing vouchers and gentrification/immigration in cities will accelerate this.

    As America continues to balkanize, expect mulattoes to start forging a distinct identity. Also expect younger whites to start showing more hostility to the mulattoes who are increasingly filling up formerly white spaces.
