8-Year-Old Removed From Class For Using Olive Oil Hair Product

The NAACP is filing a complaint against a Washington State elementary school after an 8-year-old girl was kicked out of class because her teacher complained about the smell of her hair.

Charles Mudede, a writer for Seattle’s The Stranger, says his daughter was moved to the hallway at Thurgood Marshall Elementary school before ultimately being forced to switch classrooms because she used Organic Root Stimulator in her hair.

Mudede’s daughter was the only Black student in her accelerated learning class but was moved down to a lower class with other Blacks after her white teacher complained about the way her hair smelled.

The NAACP has stepped in and is announcing plans to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education.

Mudede and his wife have since taken the child out of the school and say they don’t’ want her to return “until the teacher had medical proof that our daughter’s hair or something in her hair was to blame for the [teacher’s] nausea. The last thing you want to happen to your daughter is for a teacher to faint or vomit at the mere sight of her.”

The family has since hired an attorney.
