Jennifer’s lawsuit also points out the stress she undergoes when she has to travel to black neighborhoods to get Peyton’s hair cut. She added that she is overcome with anxiety when she thinks about her daughter entering an all white school.
The lawsuit reads:
Getting a young daughter’s hair cut is not particularly stressful for most mothers, but to Jennifer it is not a routine matter, because Payton has hair typical of an African American girl. To get a decent cut, Jennifer must travel to a black neighborhood, far from where she lives, where she is obviously different in appearance, and not overtly welcome.
Jennifer’s stress and anxiety intensify when she envisions Payton entering an all-white school. Ironically, Jennifer and Amanda moved to Uniontown from racially diverse Akron, because the schools were better and to be closer to family.
Jennifer Cramblett was seeking $50,000 in damages.
