Amari Allen Bio
Amari Allen is a 12-year-old student of Immanuel Christian School. She says, three white boys, attack and cut her “ugly, nappy” dreadlocks in a playground.
Allen alleges that while telling her she “should not have been born,” one of the boys covered her mouth, another held her head, and the third took scissors and cut her locks.

Amari Allen Classmate Attack
The attack happened Monday at the Immanuel Christian School in Springfield in Northern, Virginia where tuition is $12,000 a year.
It would be a couple of days before her family would notice and she’d tell what happened. “Everybody’s telling me to keep calm,” her mother Cynthia Allen said. Allen said the school wanted the incident kept off social media.
She said the three white boys have relentlessly bullied her, taken her lunch, called her names and hen, the attack on the playground.
They were all around me and then one of them put (his) hand behind my back, one of them covered my mouth, and the third used scissors to “cut out big chunks of her hair.
Allen’s Aunt (Zyonn Allen)
Allen’s aunt Zyonn Allen played a video of a phone call from the school where she’s asked to do the Godly thing and keep it off social media.
Allen wrote that All three white boys were still in school today, none were suspended/expelled or even approached.
On the recording, a woman can be heard saying the school is “doing everything we can to handle it the right way that honours his family.
When asked if there were adults on the playground, the woman says, Yes, there were adults out there, and I’m sure …I mean we don’t tolerate that kind of thing.
I don’t want to say too much, but we’re working on getting to the bottom of it, the school official is heard saying.
Amari Allen GoFoundMe
A GoFundMe campaign was launched to help Allen. This is a fundraiser to raise money for Amari Allen, a 12-year-old girl in Virginia who was the victim of a hate crime this Monday when three white six grade students held her down, called her derogatory names and forcibly cut her dreadlocks on the playground.
I reached out to the family and set up this fundraiser in hopes we can raise money for this sick child so she can get therapy, time off from school, or whatever she and her family need.
We will post updates as the campaign grows. Please help us make Amari’s story go viral as a testament that this type of racist behaviour will NOT be tolerated and she has the support of folks near and far. Try to imagine if that had been you.
Allen’s School Prohibits Any LGTB Behavior
Karen Pence began a part-time job teaching art at Immanuel Christian School in January. The school prohibits sexual immorality, homosexual activity or bi-sexual activity, promoting such practices, and says a healthy marriage (is) between one man and one woman.
