A woman’s social media post about her 5-year-old son’s relationship with his black friend has gone viral.

On Feb. 24 Lydia Rosebush, from Louisville, Kentucky, posted an anecdote to Facebook about her son, Jax, and his desire to have his head shaved so that he would look like his friend from school, Reddy.

“This morning Jax and I were discussing his wild hair,” Lydia wrote. “I told him that he needed a haircut this weekend. He said that he wanted his head shaved really short so he could look like his friend Reddy.”

“He 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,” she continued. “He thought it would be so hilarious to confuse his teacher with the same haircut.”
