SJW-Types Freak at Minority HS Principal’s Message to Parents About Setting Good Example for Kids

A high school principal in Houston was slammed as sexist and racist after she created a dress code for her students’ parents.
Carlotta Outley Brown, the principal of James Madison High School, told parents in a letter that they wouldn’t be allowed to enter the school if they wore revealing or inappropriate attire.
Brown, who is herself black and female, wanted parents to set a good example for the student body, which is 99% minority and 75% economically disadvantaged, according to Texas Monthly.
“Items banned from the entire campus include hot pants and Daisy Dukes, cleavage-revealing dresses, saggy pants or ripped-up, overly revealing jeans, and leggings,” Texas Monthly reported.
In other words, clothing should not be overtly casual or revealing. This seems like a reasonable request, especially after hearing Brown’s explanation.

“You are your child’s first teacher,” Brown told parents in a letter, Texas Monthly reported.
“However, please know we have to have standards, most of all we must have high standards. We are preparing your child for a prosperous future. We want them to know what is appropriate and what is not appropriate for any setting they may be in.
“This is a professional educational environment where we are teaching our children what is right and what is correct or not correct. We value you but we must ask you to value and follow the rules of the school environment,” Brown wrote.
But social justice warriors are claiming that Brown’s dress code is sexist, despite the fact that Brown herself is a woman and the dress code also applies to men.
“More than one mother has detected what they perceive as sexism,” Texas Monthly reported.
M. Yvonne Taylor, former AP English teacher in the Houston Independent School District, claimed that the dress code “is primarily directed at mothers.”

“And no, I don’t want to see parents dressed like that at school, but to bar them is inappropriate and condescending,” Taylor said, according to Texas Monthly.
Taylor seems to have it backward — it’s “inappropriate” for a parent to enter the school with a cleavage-revealing top and revealing shorts.

Taylor also not-so-subtly implied that Brown’s dress code is racist.
“Black and brown parents are often stereotyped as not caring enough about their children’s education,” Taylor said. “To turn parents away because of how they are dressed seems highly counterintuitive.”

Houston radio host Bobby Phats echoed Taylor’s disagreement with the letter.
“It tells women that they need to hide their bodies . . . their curves. It also serves to comfort those who believe there is some correlation between how parents may sometimes dress and the ability of their kids to become successful. It’s ridiculous,” he said, according to Texas Monthly.
“And it’s textbook respectability politics. It’s a black principal telling black parents and kids, ‘If you want to be successful, you need to dress in a way that makes other races feel comfortable with you at all times.’”
Of course, this outcry is completely ridiculous. Brown’s intention obviously wasn’t racist or sexist — Brown herself is a successful black woman.

The principal was right for trying to set a good example for children. Some may try to argue that attire doesn’t matter, but it does matter in the real world.
