An African Caribbean teenager has won a ruling that St Gregory's Catholic Science College was applying a cornrows ban in a way which amounted to "unjustified" indirect racial discrimination.

At first when I heard of this case I thought that why should he wear cornrows to school, then I listened to the reasons and I thought yes it is justified, as Muslims can wear the veil and Sheiks can wear the turban so if this teenager has a religious reason then he also should be permitted to wear his hair the way he wants.

But it better be neat.
