When Lydia Stith Rosebush posted this photo of her son Jax and his best friend on Facebook, she had no idea it would go viral. But it has--thanks to the innocence of her almost-5-year-old boy.
Jax and his best friend Reddy are inseparable. So when his mom said his hair was getting a little wild and he needed to get a haircut over the weekend, Jax got super-excited. He didn't want just a trim, either. He wanted to shave his hair really short so he could look just like Reddy. And he was convinced once he showed up to school with his new haircut, the teacher wouldn't be able to tell the two boys apart!
He couldn't wait, thinking how hilarious it would be to confuse his teacher with the same haircut, his mom wrote.
"Here's a picture of Jax and Reddy from their Christmas program. I'm sure you all see the resemblance," she continued.
"If this isn't proof that hate and prejudice is something that is taught I don't know what is. The only difference Jax sees in the two of them is their hair," she finished. No wonder this post has been shared thousands of times!
