And here's what the supporters of the kids kicked out are saying on other sites about the Mexican-American kids:
California kids blasted for wearing American flag shirts on Cinco de Mayo - TopixI hope Annicia gets the sh*t kicked out of her. Gets cancer. Gets AIDS. Loses her parents, her best friend and her pet all in the same week. Has a fire and loses all of her possessions and when all that's over, experiences the worst possible physical pain for an extended period of time, with no one and nothing to comfort her, before she finally expires and leaves this world the broken, shattered, awful b*tch that she really is.
They shouldn't have been kicked out; but they shouldn't have been provoking. If it was the shirts alone, then they definitely shouldn't have been kicked out, but I've read other reports that say the kids kicked out were also saying things to provoke the Hispanic kids.
But I'm glad to know that none of the people who are against immigrants are hateful or anything.
And believe me, I know that not all people in support of immigration reform are racist (as I'm in favor of reform and security - just not maybe the same way that people who are SO outraged by this non-issue); but until I see the people so concerned about this issue blasting people like the one quotes (and linked) above, I have to take the outrage with a grain of salt.
That said, since we're all about first amendment rights for high school students, what about this case?
Teacher?s job on line over student column - Education- msnbc.com
A teacher was suspended, and the principal took over the student newspaper because there was an op-ed piece that advocated tolerance for gay students.
Where is the outrage over this clear breach of First Amendment rights?
If we're going to be concerned about student First Amendment rights, I expect that we'll make sure that the outrage and support for student free speech is spread out evenly, right?
