This Kentucky high school banned dreadlocks, cornrows and twists.

Butler Traditional High School in Louisville, Kentucky shocked some parents when they distributed a dress code that banned students from sporting “dreadlocks, cornrows and twists.” The code also banned extreme hair colors and highlighting on girls and any hair coloring for boys.

Kentucky State Representative-elect Attica Scott slammed the dress code and tweeted out a picture of it. (Above)

“We feel that a student’s academic success is directly correlated to appropriate attire and appearance,” the dress code reads.

The ACLU of Kentucky fired back at the school’s justification with 2 brilliant tweets.

Dear White Friends,

Stop saying dreads and box braids are “fashion” on white people and “ghetto” on black people. And then when we claim you are appropriating our culture you say “well you eat hot dogs and have straight hair” because first of all, hot dogs originated in Germany and second of all I straighten my hair and wear weaves because if i wear my hair natural, i could deny jobs, enrollment in college, etc.
