    I don't know. You would have to ask them. I don't find it offensive at all. I disagree with bans or appeasing groups just because they feel offense to something. I feel the school should be held responsible for failing to alleviate racial/ethnic tensions here and instead choosing to violate personal freedoms of students purely as a failed attempt to cover for their own failures. The students who were punished/suspended should win the case (although I don't know if I agree with giving them money if they are asking for it, beyond paying for lawyers' fees/any potential expenses directly related to this).

    The ones south of the border love the American flag. They will risk their lives and everything they own to come here.

    This was a clear case of a school giving it up to a gang. The admins should be fired.

    The ones south of the border love the chance to make American money, they don't care about the flag. They will risk their lives and everything they own to come here.

    Only if you assume Latinos are anti-American.

    The French were defeated by Benito Juarez and his forces at the Battle of Puebla on the 5 of May, which is what the day commemorates.

    Obviously, some students saw it as some sort of intrusion of Mexican culture into the "real America" or some such nonsense. Mexico and the USA should celebrate that date together.
    I never heard of that one before. Where did you read that ?

    The United States at the time had the largest military in the world fighting the first modern war.

    You mean to say that they salute the almighty dollar, and not the flag? How American of them!

    No they don't. They love the greenback and the free gov't benefits.
