VIRAL: Boy Surprises Mom by Asking for Same Haircut as Friend to Trick Teacher

Posted by James, 05 Mar

Kids. They never cease to amaze us. And they never cease to be adorable; especially these two above.

Jax, who turns 5 made a surprising request this week when his mom needed him to get a haircut. He only wanted a haircut that was same as his friend's, Reddy. His main reason for this request was so that the two can confuse their teacher.

Much as one of the boys is black and the other white, they truly believe that the teacher won't be able to tell them apart. To them the difference isn't their skin color; just the haircut. The mother, Lydia Stith Rosebush, shared this on Facebook:

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

"He said he couldn't wait to go to school on Monday with his hair like Reddy's so that his teacher wouldn't be able to tell them apart. He thought it would be so hilarious to confuse his teacher with the same haircut."

And Jax got his wish:

The boys have gone viral since Rosebush uploaded her post. People are really amazed at this kind of friendship and acceptance at such a tender age. How I wish most of us shared such innocence and color blindness. We could all learn a thing or two about true acceptance and love that transcends color an labels from these fine young lads. Its super amazing!

Here is Rosebush's full post:

"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. He said he couldn't wait to go to school on Monday with his hair like Reddy's so that his teacher wouldn't be able to tell them apart. He thought it would be so hilarious to confuse his teacher with the same haircut.

Here's a picture of Jax and Reddy from their Christmas program. I'm sure you all see the resemblance.

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."

    The world would be a much better place if adults could learn a thing or two from children
