With the support of his mother, Jax got to do what he wanted and had his hair done so he could look just like his best bud Reddy.
Here’s the photo of Jax with his old hair:
Now, here’s the photo of the two boys side-by-side, this time with the two of them sporting similar hairstyles:
It’s nice to see a new generation of children completely unaware and unaffected by prejudice and all the disgusting things that come with it, which unfortunately are still very prevalent to this day.
