You think America is racist

A Japanese teenaged girl sued Osaka Schools, saying her public high school repeatedly forced her to dye her naturally-brown hair black or be banned from attending school. Her mother informed the School upon her enrollment that she was born with brownish hair, because the school had a policy banning hair coloring. Like many schools in Japan, Perms and braided extensions are off limits, as are dyed and bleached hair. School officials, believing that she had flouted the rules, checked her roots and repeatedly demanded that she dye it black. Though the student dyed her hair at first, she eventually stopped complying because she had developed persistent rashes and scalp pain before she stopped going to class. The school then removed her desk from the classroom, erased her name from school rosters and barred her from a school trip. She sued the Osaka Prefecture alleging mental distress. On Tuesday, the District Court of Osaka ordered the local government to pay her $3,100 in emotional damages. Many schools in Japan strictly control pupils’ appearances, even going so far as to dictate the color of underwear.
