Texas Superintendent Says 4-Year-Old Boy Either Cuts His Hair Or Wear A Dress

A Texas grandmother has accused officials at her grandson's school of discrimination after being told she either cuts his hair or place him in a dress.

Randi Woodley spoke with ABC News 13 and said when she went to pick up her 4-year-old grandson Michael on August, she was told the school principal wanted to talk to her and explained Michael's hair was too long.

"The superintendent then gave me three options. He told me that I could either cut it, braid it and pin it up, or put my grandson in a dress and send him to school, and when prompted, my grandson must say he's a girl," Woodley explained.

Woodley said Michael is being discriminated against and claims the real problem is the school dress code that states hair shouldn't "extend past the top of a t-shirt collar."

"We shouldn't even be talking about this at any age because hair has nothing to do with learning," Woodley said.

This isn't the first time a complaint of this nature has been made. Another parent Kambryn Cox told ABC News her son Kellan wasn't allowed to place his long hair in a ponytail.

"With my son's dreadlocks, sometimes they do fall in front of his face, so I felt it would be easier to put his hair up, but then that's a problem," Cox said.

Both parents say they plan on fighting what they think is a gender and race issue.

Stalley Announces U.S. Tour, Releases 'All So New' Single With Jansport J

Ohio rap staple Stalley has returned with news of a new nationwide tour, and new music to go along with it.

On Monday (Sept. 16), Stalley announced The Head Trip Tour, a U.S. trek with 12 dates so far and more shows to be announced. The tour begins in Chicago on Nov. 7, before touring throughout more of his midwestern stomping grounds and rocking Los Angeles before several shows on the East Coast.

Stalley also released "All So New," a single produced by Los Angeles musician Jansport J. The song is his first new release since Human, an EP he dropped earlier this year.

After entering the game with his breakthrough mixtape Lincoln Way Nights, Stalley built his own fan base and eventually signed with Rick Ross' Maybach Music Group. He has since left and gone indie, releasing his own music with guest appearances from the likes of Scarface, Nipsey Hussle, 2Chainz, Ty Dolla $ign and many more.

In a press release, Stalley said that his upcoming material is more personal than ever now that he's working without the restrictions of a label.

"With this music it’s more spiritual - it’s my story," Stalley said. "I've been getting closer to my fans lately, so I really wanted to let them in and have them be a part of my growth and transition into independence. By being independent and having total control of my career, I now have the freedom to create freely and bare my whole self to my true supporters."

Listen to "All So New" above or on your favorite streaming services, and see his tour schedule below.
