White Boy, 5, Asks Mom For Haircut To Look Like His Friend, Wins Everybody's Hearts

A woman from Kentucky, in the U.S., shared the most endearing on her Facebook page, regarding her 5-year-old son, Jax and his best friend, Reddy.

Jax and Reddy are inseparable, going to the same school and playing together all the time.

It turns out they both wanted to have the same haircut, even though they have very different kind of hair; in fact, they are from different races.

Jax needed to get a haircut, and the first thing he asked his mom, Lydia Rosebush, was that he wanted it to be just like the short style his best buddy had.

“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,” Lydia recounted.

She felt Jax’s innocence -by not being able to realize that the color of their skinwould always make them look different-, could remind everyone that racism is something we are definitely not born with.

Lydia was moved by the fact that “the only difference Jax sees in the two of them is their hair.”

Her touching Facebook story has gone viral. It has been liked and shared by thousands of users.

Jax’s mother comments he never mentions his friend Reddy’s skin color, even when he describes his pal.“I thought with all the hate in the world today, we could use this lesson from an almost 5-year-old,”she thoughtfully added.
