Boy, 5, Thinks New Haircut Makes Him Look Just Like His Best Friend, Even Though They're Different Races
A preschooler wanted to get the same haircut as his classmate so they could look the same.
A Kentucky preschooler wanted to get the same haircut as his classmate so they could look identical — not realizing that he is white and his classmate is black.
Five-year-old Jax’s mom, Lydia Rosebush of Louisville, told InsideEdition.com she told her son he needed to get a haircut because it was looking too messy.
“He wanted it buzzed, down to his scalp,” Rosebush explained. “He wanted to look like Reddy.”
His friend Reddy, also 5, is black. Reddy and his brother were adopted from Africa into a white family in their community when they were toddlers.
His mother said race is not a topic often discussed in their household, but she does teach her son the importance of treating everyone with kindness, no matter what skin color.
"Race is an issue everywhere, however it’s not something children consider, and it’s something they shouldn’t have to," Rosebush said. "People are people, and it doesn't matter where they come from or what color they are. You treat everyone the same. It’s not about black and white."
