A school in Kentucky is backpedaling after critics said its dress code unfairly targeted black students. The policy was overturned at a school board meeting, but everyone isn't satisfied.
It all started after state Rep. Attica Scott tweeted a photo of a flier given to her daughter that said distracting or attention-getting hairstyles like “dreadlocks, cornrolls, (and) twists” would be outlawed. We’re assuming they meant cornrows.
