6th-grader Xavier Davis was threatened with suspension all because of his haircut

  • If you saw a picture of sixth-grader Xavier Davis’ hair, you probably wouldn’t understand what all the fuss is about.
  • At first glance, it looks like many other young boy’s haircuts, but with two razor cuts in the side. It’s a popular style worn by celebrities, including soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo.
  • But when Xavier arrived at Cedar Bayou Junior High School in Baytown, Texas, on April 20, he was told: Fix your hair or face suspension.
  • “I was walking into class, and then she saw my hair and said, ‘You can’t have two lines in your hair. Go to the office,’” Xavier told Houston-area TV station KPRC.
  • It wasn’t that Xavier had razor cuts in his hair. It was that he had two. Those two tiny lines are what led to threats of suspension. Read more (4/27/17 10 AM)

A mother penned an important letter to her daughter’s principal after a dress code violation

One mother is not here for critiques of her 13-year-old’s outfits. After Catherine Pearlman’s daughter Casey was sent home with a letter stating she’d been dressed “inappropriately” for school two days in a row, Pearlmen penned a letter to the school’s principal with a simple challenge: Take Casey shopping and try to find her clothes that not only adhere to the dress code, but that she likes.

“Thank you for sending a note home for the second day in a row to say my daughter was dressed inappropriately for school,” Pearlman wrote in the letter, published in Today. “I’d like to offer an additional thank you for forcing her to change into large mesh shorts that have been worn by only God knows who and potentially never washed.

"To reward you for treating my daughter with such concern, I am cordially inviting you to take my daughter shopping,” Pearlman continued.

“I forgot to thank you for making it clear to my daughter that her body is somehow a distraction, either to herself or to the boys,” Pearlman wrote. “I thought she might have missed the message earlier in the year when the gym teacher told her she couldn’t wear yoga pants because the boys aren’t able to control themselves.

"I appreciate how hard you are working to drive the point home.” Read more (5/19/17)

I was hoping that Neville would assist me with the first stage of the operation, and I am sure he will perform it admirably.”  - Remus Lupin

as far as i am concerned, this operation-speak was a slip and is canon proof that the marauders used military-speak (operation, stages, point position, code names) when they were mayhem-making.

‘getting his shit together’

his own label has been purposely holding him back and fucking him over for the past year. his mother was terminally ill for the majority of 2016 and just passed away 6 months ago.  every single card he’s been dealt since the break started in late 2015 has been horrible and his own team has been sabotaging him and purposefully trying to devalue his image, his brand, and his fans’ loyalty to him.

he’s been reacting and surviving as best he can. what a slap in the face to use language like ‘getting his shit together’ to put the burden for everything he’s been forced to deal with on him rather than on the people responsible for holding him back.
