Here's a story that will get you nice and angry on this lovely day: A 7-year-old black girl from Tulsa, Okla. was sent home from school because of her dreadlocks, a hairstyle that violated the school's dress code policy, FOX News reports.
The elementary school has deemed hairstyles such as dreadlocks, afros, and mohawks as "faddish," and are not allowed to be worn to school.

This makes perfect sense, because it's not like afros and dreads haven't been around since the beginning of human existence. Even more baffling and enraging is that the girl, Tiana Parker, who is an A student, attended the school last year with no problem.
Her father, who is a barber, said, “It hurt my feelings to the core," and has since pulled his daughter from the school. Add this to the pile of recent stories that get our blood boiling.
