Take a look at this photo of thirteen-year-old Juelz Trice’s head.
You can see his fade haircut colored with a black marker.
Back in April, the boy came home from school and told his parents a teacher colored in his hair design with a Sharpie.
Now they’re suing.
According to the civil rights lawsuit, Juelz was sent to the office because his haircut violated school dress code.
He was told he could either use a marker to color in his scalp or get suspended.
He chose the marker because he was worried a suspension could affect his eligibility for the track team.
The assistant principal, the discipline clerk and a teacher, all white, are named in the lawsuit along with the school district.
The family wants damages and they also want people who work for the district to go through racial sensitivity training about certain haircuts.
