    reverend, my point was that I'll proudly wear patriotic colors regardless of what holiday it is, US based or not, and I will not remove them just because someone might be "offended" by it.

    First I ever heard of Cinco De Mayo was in Alaska because I worked at a Mexican restaurant on the side.

    I seriously came to Southern California thinking Cinco was gonna be a blast down here. I got offered to be driven to taco bell and laughed at for mentioning it.

    Oh...and a pinata left in my chair the next day.

    So, in their own words, what statement were they trying to make by coordinating their dress on that day? That's what I'm asking.

    What more do you require? That's all I need.




    Is it possible? Answer that. It is possible that these boys resent some of the Mexican-American students at their school for some reason? Then speculating on their motives in not dishonest at all.

    Two of em, are half-mexican.

    But speculate away...





    I agree with the school districts position. Sending them home was overzealous and a bad call on the part of the principal.

    Ahh a moment of clarity. Kudos to you.



    Now, we're getting somewhere. And, in fairness, like me you are just speculating as to their motives. If their answer is they just 'chose to represent the USA', they I would ask: Why on that day? What is it about Cinco de Mayo and/or how the Mexican-American student celebrate their heritage that compelled you to represent the USA?


    I listened to what they said, (there are interviews on youtube) what thier parents said, and drew a conclusion based on evidence...

    How does me wearing an American flag impede on your ability to corona's "mexican heritage day"?

    I'd like to hear in their own words why they chose to coordinate their dress on that specific day. What specific message were they wanting to communicate to the Mexican-American students?

    One of the mothers did state that her son was "half-latino", but she did not elaborate. Do you have links with more info?

    As did I.

    Both the students and their parents seem to think simply claiming patriotism gets them a pass.

    How does me wearing an American flag impede on your ability to corona's "mexican heritage day"?
    If the boys would have the balls to admit they were trying to press some buttons or if they would admit they were spurned by some hispanic girls or their father's business is hurting because a competitor is hiring illegals... something, anything...

    If they would just come clean and tell us what's really on their minds, I'd have more respect for them.

    But the babe in the woods routine "what, what... I'm proud to be an American, is that a crime?"... I'm not sure they really understand what it means to be an American. It's more than a t-shirt and a bandanna, that's for damn sure.

    why did the district undercut its site administrators?

    The district does not concur with the Live Oak High School administration's interpretation of either board or district policy related to these actions.
