Vanessa VanDyke, 12, says she was told by Faith Christian Academy in Orlando, Florida, that she has to cut her hair or find a new school, Local 6 reports."

Vanessa has been rocking her Afro all year, but it only became an issue after her family complained that she was being teased over her natural hair.

This begs the question: What type of un-Christian and un-American values is this so-called Christian school instilling in their students?

That school officials prefer fake processed hair to beautiful natural hair? That it`s easier to side with the bullies instead of the victim?

It`s a sad indictment of our culture that when a black girl lets her hair grow naturally, and doesn`t add harmful chemicals to straighten it out, she`s considered a distraction.

Little Vanessa has no plans to straighten or cut her natural hairstyle, and her mother has her back. Let`s hope that the Pharisees at Faith Christian Academy will have an epiphany and let Vanessa rock her beautiful hair.
