Children’s hearts lack prejudice—something that bears repeating in a world where many adults revert to hatred and racist caricatures.
Adults might think they always know best, but this story shows that we have a lot to learn by watching the youngest generation.
When Lydia Stith Rosebush published this amazing story on Love What Matters’s Facebook page, it immediately went viral. And after reading the story, I can understand why.
Lydia’s five-year son, Jax, is convinced of one thing in life: he and best friend, Reddy, look like identical twins.
There’s really only one thing that separates the two besties according to Jax: his hair stands up, while Reddy’s is cropped.
So Jax decided to cut his hair over the weekend and play a little prank of he and Reddy’s teacher on Monday.
Because how on earth would their teacher be able to tell the difference between them if they had the same hairstyle?
“Jax 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,” his mother, Lydia, wrote on Facebook.

“If this isn’t proof that hate and prejudice is something that is taught I don’t know what is,” Lydia wrote. “The only difference Jax sees in the two of them is their hair.”
