Aug 24 - 2 Black Kids Kicked From School Because of Haircut [Pic]


Two Colleton County teenagers have been sent out of school because of their haircuts.

They may not look like the average haircuts for teenage boys, but for Melvin and Jerrel Bowens, they say it's their way of expressing themselves.

Now, these haircuts have cut them out of school.

"This is the craziest thing I have ever heard, that kids get put out of school and can't go to school because they have stars cut in their hair or they have their hair cut a certain way," father Marvin Bowens says.

Melvin came to school Monday with what he thought was an all-star haircut, but school officials thought he was part of a gang.

When their father tried to take them back to school, the school district wouldn't budge.

"The five or six point stars are recognized as gang point symbols," Colleton County School Superintendent Charles Gale says.

Colleton County has a police that says "the district prohibits the use of hand signals, graffiti, or the presence of any apparel, jewelry, accessory, or manner of grooming which... indicates or implies membership or affiliation that presents a clear and present danger contrary to the school environment and educational objectives."

"One thing you have to realize, in the black community, it's a cultural thing," Bowens says. "If they see the rap groups with the stars and stuff in their hair... what are they going to do?"

"It's a sad day in South Carolina when the kids gotta have a certain hair cut to get their education."
