A Facebook post about two adorable five-year-olds getting the same haircut is going viral, and for good reason.

The story, posted by Lydia Stith Rosebush, is about Lydia’s sweet son, Jax, who wanted to get the same haircut as his best friend, Reddy, so that his teacher wouldn’t be able to tell them apart.

The kicker to this story? Jax is white and Reddy is black.

Lydia wrote alongside a picture of the two boys before Jax’s haircut:

This morning Jax and I were discussing his wild hair. 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. He thought it would be so hilarious to confuse his teacher with the same haircut.

Jax got the haircut, and it really does look exactly like Reddy’s. His mom posted a picture of the two boys side by side, and it’s the cutest thing ever.

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