Sixth-grade boys pin down black classmate, cut her dreadlocks

A 12-year-old girl says three of her male classmates at a Virginia private school pinned her down and cut her dreadlocks, calling her hair “ugly” and “nappy.”

The group of white sixth-grade boys ambushed Amari Allen during recess Monday, as she was about to use the slide on the playground at the Immanuel Christian School in Fairfax, Virginia, local outlets reported.

“They said my hair was nappy and I was ugly,” Allen, who is African American, told News4.
