A 7-year-old girl named Tiana Parker was recently sent home from Deborah Brown Community School, the charter school she attends in Tulsa, Oklahoma, because of her hair. Tiana has dreadlocks and dress code states that “hairstyles such as dreadlocks, afros, mohawks, and other faddish styles are unacceptable.”
Natural hair is not a fad.
This is ridiculousness. Please sign my petition! This racist dress code is just another reminder of the long history of making black political. There is nothing unacceptable with natural hair. I wear my afro out 90% of the time. Guess what? My classmates still learn.
The sad part is that Langston U, its sponsor, is an HBCU. It’s terrible how black people internalize racist beliefs about our own bodies and end up making rules like this.
A hairstyle that is to be maintained in its state permanently unless cut or miraculously detangled is a “fad.” GWEH FROM MY FACE!! *Signs*
Schools need to stop focusing so much on students’ appearances and put more focus on how they’re learning
I got your backs, guys.
2. (I couldn’t track down the actual recipe for the second picture, so I’m just going to assume it’s Chocolate Coffee.)
3. Again, I couldn’t track this one down, but I think it’s an ice cream cake. Here’s ten different recipes for ice cream cakes in exchange for not finding that particular one.
6. This cake is supposedly from a restaurant or high-end bakery, but I wasn’t able to find the source or recipe for it. Sorry!
7. I know what these are! York Peppermint Patty Brownies!
8. yeah i’m pretty sure this is just a disassembled oreo smore thing it’s sort of self-explanatory
9. *shifty eyes* I couldn’t find this one either but here make this instead
10. My only guess for these is homemade ding dongs.
