    Or does your selective outrage only apply to celebrations involving brown skin?
    That would mean more if these Mexicans even knew what Cinco de Mayo was about. The vast majority have no clue.

    Don't kid yourself Rev and those who have bought into your "righteous" indignation. This isn't a situation in which people should be outraged by students not being allowed to wear the American flag as clothing. The students actions here were not "innocent". The school took the actions it did because the students were seeking to create a disturbance, nothing more nothing less.
    So wearing an American flag bandanna in a school that's in America is now somehow disruptive?

    How low have we actually sunk in this country when the American flag is considered disruptive and a disturbance?

    This incident wasn't simply about students wearing "american flag" shirts and bandanas and others being "offended" by it. If it were, I would agree with you as well.

    I am sorry you find the American flag so offensive.

    I think it was the mexicans celebrating a fake mexican holiday who were creating a disturbance.

    Again, I'm sorry you find this country so offensive.

    Regardless, within the borders of America, the American flag takes precedent over any other national colors. If the Mexicans were bothered by it, go back home. There is no interest of the state, the school district, or that principal in suppressing nationalism for a bunch of third world border hoppers' children.

    Further, now the precedent has been set at that school that the American flag can be seen as offensive. I, for one, don't believe our flag should be degraded to the same indignation we give gang colors for any reason. Least of all a bunch of butthurt Mexicans celebrating Happy Corona and Lime Day.

    If wearing the American flag colors (not the flag itself as that is poor flag etiquette) is offensive in this country, then baby, consider me one offensive SOB. I'll gladly take down any hispanic that has a problem with it.

    Something interesting I read:

    Flying a foreign flag by foreign nationals on soil not their own is reserved for invaders, occupiers and concurred lands it is and should be considered an act of aggression and met with overwhelming military force driving the invaders back to their home land. They are acting with the condolences of their leaders. we are at war with Mexico.

    On Thursday, about 200 Mexican-American students walked out of class in protest of the flag clothing incident. Members of the group waved the Mexican flag and said they were marching for respect and unity. They also demanded the school suspend the boys who wore the U.S. flag-adorned clothing.


    They got to be kidding me.... The need to get a clue or go back to mexico. Assholes.

    Then I think 200 mexican American students just earned themselves an expulsion for the year. Seems they don't want to be in the same class as the boys so, by all means, let them wait a year to come back to school when the boys have moved on ahead.

    My bet is that if this were reversed and they sent mexican kids home for wearing the mexican flag on the forth, you'd be pretty much all up in arms over it,.
    Cinco de Mayo doesn't have anything to do with the school's dress code that was used to tell the students to turn their shirts inside out. No insignias is probably that rule.

    I would feel the same about Mexican flag shirts.

    When I was 15 (1970) we staged sit-ins and wore armbands until our HS dropped the dress code.

    Later on I read about dress codes making a huge come back. You cannot have this **** both ways.
