I’m a proud Jersey girl, but this makes me sick to my stomach!
Shaun King shared a video of a Buena High School wrestler named Andrew Johnson, who was forced to cut off his dreadlocks in the middle of a wrestling match in order to continue competing.
Just watching the woman chop off the young man’s hair broke my heart.
Disgusting and heartbreaking. A referee known for his racism, Alan Maloney (google him), made high school wrestler Andrew Johnson cut off his dreads or lose the match.
They were covered and gave him no advantage. So he cut them off. He won the match. But this never should’ve been allowed.
Alan Maloney has a history of racist shenanigans including calling one wrestler the N word.
This vile human being should never be allowed to referee again.
Watch the video clip below.
This news reporter completely ice skated over the racism Andrew endured and called him a “team player.”

A referee wouldn't allow Andrew Johnson of Buena @brhschiefs to wrestle with a cover over his dreadlocks. It was either an impromptu haircut, or a forfeit. Johnson chose the haircut, then won by sudden victory in OT to help spark Buena to a win. pic.twitter.com/f6JidKNKoI
