From the New York Times, some National News:

Georgia Elementary School Is Accused of Racial Insensitivity Over Hairstyle Guidelines Display

The display at Narvie J. Harris Theme School in Decatur, Ga., was removed on Thursday, the same day it was put up.

The display above drew widespread criticism, largely because all that were pictured were black hairstyles.

By Neil Vigdor
Aug. 3, 2019

From New Age box fades to braids, a display on the wall of a suburban Atlanta elementary school tried to illustrate a variety of “inappropriate” haircuts and hairstyles. But there was one thing the children who were photographed had in common: They were all black.

Oh my gosh! Why were they all black?

The display by the Narvie J. Harris Theme School in Decatur, Ga., was taken down on Thursday — the same day it had been put up — after being widely criticized as racially insensitive. The episode happened at a time when cities and states across the United States have adopted legislation making it illegal to discriminate on the basis of a person’s hairstyle.

The faces of the children in the photographs were covered with Post-it notes. It was unclear if they were students at the school, which is 95 percent African-American, according to the state’s Governor’s Office of Student Achievement.

Oh, well, that seems to answer the question why they were all black.

… “Those particular styles, and the fact that schools make arbitrary decisions about good and bad hairstyles is long standing across the country and the reason that New York City and the state of California took the actions that they did making such types of bans illegal,” Dr. Rooks said. “The styles that are banned (dread locks and twists for boys and shaved in designs) are sometimes deemed necessary because some people think those hairstyles mean the children who wear them are members of gangs. There is zero evidence of that being the case.”

Zero!

    The past 24 hours has been depressing for a number of reasons. One of those reasons being El Paso has killed any hope of a political solution to the incredibly dire situation at the southern border. The revolutionaries are going to get what they want. A little levity is appreciated.
  2. “The styles that are banned (dread locks and twists for boys and shaved in designs) are sometimes deemed necessary because…”

    This is not good english.

    But there was one thing the children who were photographed had in common: They were all black.

    How hard would it be to create appropriate positive-thought-mindful computer graphics showing white people wearing black hairstyles? It would really enhance the white light at the end of the tunnel.

    “Those particular styles, and the fact that schools make arbitrary decisions about good and bad hairstyles is long standing across the country and the reason that New York City and the state of California took the actions that they did making such types of bans illegal”

    Because black mini-samurais shall not be told what to do!

    But what if the school goes ahead and imposes hairstyle restrictions anyway”? Because in fact, it’s not “discrimination” based on low-ID, differently abled or LGBTQ2S hair situations. It’s *imposing* a hairstyle, which is like imposing a school uniform. Can one still do that?

They hire you as one of their regular experts, you sign the dotted line and get a check, and now you're not an expert, you're an employee. You're not only limited to speaking when called upon within Fox, you're also limited in that Fox's contract forbids you from speaking to anybody else.
  5. “The display by the Narvie J. Harris Theme School” should read “Narvie J. Harris Traditional Theme School”

    The black parents sent their kids there specifically so they wouldn’t be seated next to a kid with a thunderbolt carved into their head or dreads. But why couldn’t the Times figure out the name of the place? Changing ‘traditional theme’ to just ‘theme’ makes it ungrammatical, and vaguely like those pictures Stalin would have made, with disfavored people airbrushed out.

    “Teach from your feet, not your seat”. -Narvie J. Harris. Harris began teaching in 1939 when they probably had corporal punishment.

    According to greatschools.org, the Narvie J. Harris School is 98% black, 1% Hispanic and 1% mixed race. If none of your students are white, why would you have any pictures of white hairstyles?

    I think it’s also safe to assume that substantially all of the teachers and administrators are also black, including the ones who created the display, and that they didn’t think it was racist when they posted it.
  6. Maybe helping the kids get more than minimum wage jobs should be abandoned as well?

    No it's not just this. The entire push and motive behind minoritarianism is not really about blacks--blacks are just pets and the best "oppression" justification.

    Minoritarianism is--at root--an ideological attack on basic freedom of association. And specifically on the right of a nation's majority to have its standards, its norms, its culture be normative. When i was born setting hair styles for kids both fine and not much of an issue because people more-or-less assented to a common culture. The entire thrust of minoritarianism is to attack that and render it illegitimate. So now we have muslims in America. Schools must goofy--intentionally civilization/order hostile--hairstyles. Bakers must back wedding cakes for fags.

    As i've pointed out before, at least the minoritarians, having destroyed a cohesive majority culture could just ... leave us alone! Let Christian--or even non-Christian!--bakers bake for who they damn well want. Companies employ whomever--even all male or all female--they like. Voucher off the school funding and let parents pick schools with the values and dress codes they like.

    That--freedom of association--is how you can actually accomodate "diversity" in one polity. But that isn't what minoritarians want. Even that would let normal white gentiles ... be their evil oppressive selves. No the minoritarians want to beat down any attempt by anyone to not obey their masters.
  14. “inappropriate” means ‘do as you’re fucking well told’. Doesn’t it?

  15. The little girl at bottom right with pigtails all over her head seems perfectly ok to me. I’ve seen that hairdo on little black girls my whole life. Perhaps some pictures of appropriate hairdos would help. Pigtails are not dreds.

  16. Anon[136] • Disclaimer says:

    Here’s the pamphlet describing the DeKalb school district’s “traditional theme” schools. They seem to be a sort of magnet school with no testing for admission to which kids in overcrowded elementary schools can optionally go (lottery chosen).

    https://www.dekalbschoolsga.org/documents/transportation/theme-school-brochure-2017.pdf

    The brochure is so full of jargon and marketing BS (probably written by black college graduates from the post-clear writing era) that it’s hard to figure out exactly how these schools compare to normal schools, but here are some quotes:

    Special Features of a Traditional Theme School
     Required parental involvement
     Emphasis on core subjects
     High academic standards and expectations
     Exposure to a world language
     Strict conduct code
    Required uniform/strict dress code
     Emphasis on critical thinking and problem solving
     Automated reading program (Elementary Schools)
     Required summer reading and mathematics activities
     Required challenging daily homework
     Tutorial programs
     Activity-based instruction
     “Agenda” planners
     Interdisciplinary instruction 

    Traditional Theme School Guidelines
     Parents and students are expected to have an enrollment commitment for one year
     Once accepted, a student must be in attendance on the first day of school to maintain his/her placement
     Parents must complete parental involvement service hours for students enrolled at a theme school. If siblings are enrolled at a theme elementary school and a theme middle school simultaneously, the parent must complete 50% of the parental involvement service hours at each school to receive credit for parental involvement service hours
    Students must wear the designated uniform for the enrolled theme school
     Continued enrollment is contingent upon compliance with the theme school regulations and requirements that include the completion of parent involvement service hours and student attendance
     Complete all school work assignments to the best of his/her ability
     Attend school regularly and arrive on time. Avoid excessive check-outs.
     Leave the campus promptly at the end of the school day or after participation in an authorized school activity.
     Conduct himself/herself in a manner appropriate for school
     Students currently enrolled and in good standing may continue participation in that Theme School Program
     When a theme school placement is declined or not filled by the assigned registration date, the student must reapply for a theme school during the next open enrollment period

    So it smells a little like a charter school experience, but they admit every kid who wins a lottery. If the above is to be taken seriously, they feel free to send kids back to the normal elementary or middle school if there are problems.

    I think a way forward on hair is for the school district to convene committees of parents, administrators, and teachers, with many black members, and come up with standards that most black members are O.K. with, then circulate them to parents, and get as much buy-in as possible.

    Then do not apologize or back down if Twitter finds out.

    Best thing to do: Not comment at all. Second best: Release the committee information to the press. There will always be a few malcontent parents though, who the press will be happy to quote. On the committee documents perhaps there should be a notice: “Notiice: Our hair policy may be leaked by a busybody troublemaker on Twitter or to the New York Times. You may be contacted by young Jewish white women from New York City asking leading questions in voices characterized by uptalk and vocal fry. If so, immediately contact the DeKalb White Savior Response Team, who are trained to deal with such people.”

  17. Well it’s the same thing as the old saw, “You can’t legislate morality” — in a similar vein, you can’t legislate personal dignity.

    Taking a parallel example (hairstyles is a youngster’s game), let’s talk about people’s names.

    One time I was in a mixed-race social gathering, and the conversational topic came up of lower-class black people giving their children ad-hoc, made-up, one-off names which often sound comical to people outside of their subculture. A very nice, earnest Black lady asked me, a very White-looking dude, what did I think of the practice.

    I said Well you know, people are free to do whatever they like, and there is some value to having a “unique” name, but personally overall I think a kid whose name is LaTray’tious is being short-changed in life, and here’s why.

    I come from a Catholic culture, and my given name is an old name that has a long history in my family, and it’s also common enough that several noteworthy statesmen, writers, military heroes, and other notables share my name. Likewise, it’s customary for a Catholic to have, as a middle name, the name of a Saint, and as it happens, my middle name is shared by three very famous saints.

    What this means is that my name(s) are attached to a great deal of notable history and collective dignity, both public and private, I have had the advantage of having multiple role models all my life, things to live up to, people and events and achievements which I shared some small but thinkable association with, even if it was only in my head. When things got rough for me (which was often), I could ask myself, What would my great namesakes X, Y, Z, M, N, O, and P do?

    A kid named De’Andretude lacks those inner advantages.

    It’s the same with haircuts. Sure, you can get “Muffugga” shaved into the side of your head, or one of those ludicrous seafood-salad/mushroom ‘dos, and it’s your right. Just don’t act surprised when the rest of us secretly think of you as an unserious undignified person. You may not care about signals, but signals care about you.

  19. Deep Googling turns up hair issues at African-African schools.

    What’s your school’s policy on hair?
    School hair policy should be inclusive of everyone. Here’s what different school’s hair policies look like around the country.

    “The girls however claimed school rules prohibited African hairstyles such as afros, bantu knots, dreadlocks, and braids. They alleged they were not allowed to speak their mother tongue and that a teacher called them m**keys when they were singing and chanting in class.”

  30. It should certainly be OK to ban hairstyles if they are in some way indicative of gang insignia or membership, and also if they represent some kind of hygiene or safety problem, regardless of race.

    Hairstyles have always been grounds for contention between students and schools and students and parents.

    Even at school in England in the 1960’s, we were carefully monitored for noncompliance with hair regulations. As I recall sideburns could not be more than one third of the way down the ear, hair must be one inch off the collar, and hair could not be over the forehead. Also I think there must have been some regulation about excessive quiffs and the use of hair styling products such as Brylcreem.

    I think schools should also have the right to proscribe visible tattoos.

    No, it is the business of ADULTS to tell children how to behave. That was obvious from the dawn of time until about 100 years ago. Even 60 years ago it was widely understood.

    Children should follow strict hair grooming rules in schools because it’s a rule imposed by adults. They don’t need a reason why. They don’t need an explanation. They need to do it because the grown ups say so.

This is more than psyops designed by Indian engineers at Google. We are transfixed by 13% (supposedly) of the country; a population not known for its beauty and achievements.

    That’s just Mr. Sailor’s m.o. He NOTICES things that he wants to NOTICE. Although if he did comment he would allude how the white dude is just another atheist gamma soy boy. And the shooting is probably just a false flag, complete with crisis actors. No one really died.

    As far as hair style is concerned, why should the school care? Are normies that concerned about this issue?

    “Although if he did comment he would allude how the white dude is just another atheist gamma soy boy.”

    That sounds more like Vox Day.

    How much damage has been done thanks to the progressive jihad to make any effort to police the habits and behavior of their favorite minority verboten?
     
    No it's not just this. The entire push and motive behind minoritarianism is not really about blacks--blacks are just pets and the best "oppression" justification.

    Minoritarianism is--at root--an ideological attack on basic freedom of association. And specifically on the right of a nation's majority to have its standards, its norms, its culture be normative. When i was born setting hair styles for kids both fine and not much of an issue because people more-or-less assented to a common culture. The entire thrust of minoritarianism is to attack that and render it illegitimate. So now we have muslims in America. Schools must goofy--intentionally civilization/order hostile--hairstyles. Bakers must back wedding cakes for fags.

    As i've pointed out before, at least the minoritarians, having destroyed a cohesive majority culture could just ... leave us alone! Let Christian--or even non-Christian!--bakers bake for who they damn well want. Companies employ whomever--even all male or all female--they like. Voucher off the school funding and let parents pick schools with the values and dress codes they like.

    That--freedom of association--is how you can actually accomodate "diversity" in one polity. But that isn't what minoritarians want. Even that would let normal white gentiles ... be their evil oppressive selves. No the minoritarians want to beat down any attempt by anyone to not obey their masters.

    “The entire push and motive behind minoritarianism is not really about blacks — blacks are just pets and the best ‘oppression’ justification.”

    I used to believe this. But it seems the entire political-media establishment has been roped into obsessing about blacks and the state of their bodies 24/7. This is more than psyops designed by Indian engineers at Google. We are transfixed by 13% (supposedly) of the country; a population not known for its beauty and achievements. Sorry rationalists, we are dealing we some black magic here, a Kabbalist-voodoo mix of sorcery and enchantment.

    True Kabbalists are (a) extremely rare and (b) among the least likely to be pushing globohomo or even politically active at all. Extremely pious, true Kabbalists spend nearly all of their time in prayer, meditation and study of ancient sacred texts. Don't confuse the perverted, pop-celebrity-associated version of Kabbala with the real thing.
  38. “One of those reasons being El Paso has killed any hope of a political solution to the incredibly dire situation at the southern border.”

    Only if people attempt to justify the act. Other than that the issues regarding the border remain. The actions of a lone gunman should not impact the question of US sovereignty but superficially. Having relied on so much anecdotal material to advance social change, it’s a good idea to press the numbers and the overall press while condemning the violence of the anecdotes.

    The consequence of abusing crime stats to malign an entire population very few of who have any relation to crime in general and fewer to the violent crimes we are most concerned about.

  39. The damage created by illegal immigration far outweighs this one incident that is itself less than 1% of US criminal activity. As opposed to the problems resulting from illegal and legal immigrants. For the moment it is just best to condemn the current violence.

    It is tragic.

  40. Laughing about the hairstyle codes. Of course, there ought to be standards of dress and behavior that avoids extremes . . . they can get creative when they get to college.

    Though I suspect that there is another way to handle it minus posters that come across vaguely as “mug shots.”

    Just to be safe, they could have tossed in a few inappropriate white hairdos. My blowdried do from the prom for instance. All they had to do was ask.

    Of course, a photo of a white boy wearing one of these modern black styles: that would have been problematic in the extreme.

    These silly topiaries are merely risible.
    If there’s one haircut that sets everyone’s nerves a-janglin’, it’s the Tactical Bowl Cut.

    It’s a Whiteboy thang.

    Public schools have been fussing about hair ever since there has been public schools. As long as it's not verminous or over a student's eyes, it's really none of their business.

    “As long as it’s not verminous or over a student’s eyes, it’s really none of their business.”

    No, it is the business of ADULTS to tell children how to behave. That was obvious from the dawn of time until about 100 years ago. Even 60 years ago it was widely understood.

    Children should follow strict hair grooming rules in schools because it’s a rule imposed by adults. They don’t need a reason why. They don’t need an explanation. They need to do it because the grown ups say so.

    Absolutely. There would be no need for parents if kids were born knowing how to behave.

    I told my kids repeatedly that they will have to do what authority figures tell them to do, sometimes without good reason, or face the consequences. Right now it's me and Mom, but soon it will be your teacher, your employer, the police, etc.

    Well it's the same thing as the old saw, "You can't legislate morality" -- in a similar vein, you can't legislate personal dignity.

    Taking a parallel example (hairstyles is a youngster's game), let's talk about people's names.

    One time I was in a mixed-race social gathering, and the conversational topic came up of lower-class black people giving their children ad-hoc, made-up, one-off names which often sound comical to people outside of their subculture. A very nice, earnest Black lady asked me, a very White-looking dude, what did I think of the practice.

    I said Well you know, people are free to do whatever they like, and there is some value to having a "unique" name, but personally overall I think a kid whose name is LaTray'tious is being short-changed in life, and here's why.

    I come from a Catholic culture, and my given name is an old name that has a long history in my family, and it's also common enough that several noteworthy statesmen, writers, military heroes, and other notables share my name. Likewise, it's customary for a Catholic to have, as a middle name, the name of a Saint, and as it happens, my middle name is shared by three very famous saints.

    What this means is that my name(s) are attached to a great deal of notable history and collective dignity, both public and private, I have had the advantage of having multiple role models all my life, things to live up to, people and events and achievements which I shared some small but thinkable association with, even if it was only in my head. When things got rough for me (which was often), I could ask myself, What would my great namesakes X, Y, Z, M, N, O, and P do?

    A kid named De'Andretude lacks those inner advantages.

    It's the same with haircuts. Sure, you can get "Muffugga" shaved into the side of your head, or one of those ludicrous seafood-salad/mushroom 'dos, and it's your right. Just don't act surprised when the rest of us secretly think of you as an unserious undignified person. You may not care about signals, but signals care about you. Do you really want Dr. LaSha'untrius High-fade Mushroom-head doing your CAT scan?

    Do you really want Dr. LaSha’untrius High-fade Mushroom-head doing your CAT scan?

    No, that would be a hairy situation.

    I certainly wouldn’t want him doing my CT scan.

    (Or, put another way, when it comes to the likes of “Dr. LaSha’untrius High-fade Mushroom-head”, I wouldn’t even want him to scan my cat.)

    What?! Has Mr. Sailer ever suggested such a thing concerning any widely-reported massacre? Perhaps you are confusing Steve Sailer with some of the other, shall we say reality-challenged writers that are prominently featured at Unz Review?

    Has he ever come out and argued these tragic events are NOT "false flags", that his fellow authors and his audience who suggest otherwise are "reality challenged"? Or would such a pronouncement be deemed "punching to the right" and thus frowned upon by the Alt Right community?
