    Students Wearing American Flag Shirts Sent Home

    Students Wearing American Flag Shirts Sent Home


    Students Wearing American Flag Shirts Sent Home | NBC Bay Area


    On any other day at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Daniel Galli and his four friends would not even be noticed for wearing t-shirts with the American flag. But Cinco de Mayo is not any typical day especially on a campus with a large Mexican American student population.

    Galli says he and his friends were sitting at a table during brunch break when the Vice Principal asked two of the boys to remove American flag bandannas that they wearing on their heads and for the others to turn their American flag t-shirts inside-out. When they refused, the boys were ordered to go to the principal's office.





    But to many Mexican American students at Live Oak, this was a big deal. They say they were offended by the five boys and others for wearing American colors on a Mexican holiday.

    "I think they should apologize cause it is a Mexican Heritage Day," Annicia Nunez, a Live Oak High student, said. "We don't deserve to be get disrespected like that. We wouldn't do that on Fourth of July."

    As for an apology, the boys and their families say, "fat chance."




    This is sick, this principle should be fired, and the chicanos who are all but hurt about Americans wearing the American flag should STFU and get a life or repatriate to that dump of a country they came from.

    An excellent example of why Arizona's 2nd legislation is such a good idea - this situation wouldn't have happened there.

    I think it's egregious that we now live in a country where we're encouraged by our own government-employees to be shamed by our stars and stripes.

    I would NEVER have a problem with anyone displaying the colors or flag of their country on any of our holidays. It wouldn't occur to me to be offended.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    If the American flag offends them so much, perhaps they should move back to mexico.



    BTW... "cinco de mayo" is a crock holiday, its only mildy celebrated in the small state of puebla Mexico and at chili's, taco bell, and chevy's fresh mex, so we gringos buy fake mexican food and bottom shelf watered down margarhitas.

    Yes, funny, isn't' it - that they're offended by an American-pushed thought on 'their holiday'

    I agree that this is ridiculous, but has there been a history of ethnic conflict on the school campus? The boys admittedly were wearing the shirt to get a rise out of Latino students and potentially start a conflict.

    However, the principal needs to take a class on dress code do's and don'ts.

    What's really hilarious, when you think about it, would be for some "French-American" students to protest the celebration of Cinco de Mayo because it hurts their feeling the Mexicans bragging about killing their ancestors. That would be fun to watch some school administrator figure out the PC correct line on that one.


    And BTW, speaking of, Cinco De Mayo really... is an insult to Mexico. They're PROUD they kicked France's ass once? Really, that's worthy of a holiday?? We won WWII and didn't bother to make it a Holiday.


    And to stay completely on topic, I hope those kids parents sue the school for violating their kids 1st amendment rights.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Mexican Independence Day is actually on September 16. That's typically a bigger holiday in Mexico and amongst Mexicans in the U.S. Cinco de Mayo is kind of like St. Patrick's day...an big deal in the U.S., not so much of a big deal elsewhere.

    Liberals prove time and time and time again that they are anti-American.

    Perhaps that is the reason, but don't you find it the least bit pathetic that these Latino's (in America) were pissed off about other American's displaying the American flag?

    Just because someone is celebrating Cinco de Mayo in America, does not mean that everyone else cannot celebrate being an American by displaying the American flag.
