This 5-Year Old Boy's Haircut Has Everyone Talking

We all know about the innocence of children. From questions about how things work, to why things happen, they aren't shy about things that adults would deem to be inappropriate.

Well, 5-year-old Jax wanted to shave his head so that he could look more like his friend from school, Reddy.

"This morning Jax and I were discussing his wild hair. I told him that he needed a haircut this weekend. He said that he wanted his head shaved really short so he could look like his friend Reddy," said Lydia Stith Rosebush in a Facebook post last week.

Jax was so excited to go to school on Monday to trick his teacher into trying to tell them apart.

"He thought it would be so hilarious to confuse his teacher with the same haircut." his mom wrote.

She then displayed a picture of the two boys from Christmas, and the resemblance - or lack there of, was obvious.

Jax is white, where Reddy is black.

"If this isn't proof that hate and prejudice is something that is taught I don't know what is. The only difference Jax sees in the two of them is their hair." Lydia concluded.

It's amazing to see how kids don't see the things we find so obvious. Good for you Jax!  Hopefully more people start seeing things from your perspective.
