    Oh, you sound like you're very knowledgable about this school. Tell me, who were the kids involved, and how would you describe their relationships with eachother? What social groups within the school are involved in the situation?

    Oh, and just for the record. If hispanics are offended by seeing the US flag being waved on cinco de mayo....they should go back to mexico. If you are more proud of being a mexican than you are of being an american...maybe you don't belong in America???? just a thought.
    Nobody Gets angry at american flags, when some snot nosed kid puts an american flag up on cinco de mayo as an escalation rather than an innocent flag sitting around... We'll, some of the more culturally aware know what that is.

    Also... when you see a truck full of white americans driving up to a group of mexicans, waving their flags like it's more their country than anyone elses, telling them that this is not their country and they should go home, swearing, picking a fight draped in the stars and stripes.... well some of us know what that is too.

A school official at Denair Middle School told Cody some students had been complaining about the flag and it was no longer allowed on school property. "In this country we're supposed to be free," said Cody. "And I should be able to wave my flag wherever I want to. And they're telling me I can't." Cody's grandfather says the school was concerned about racial tensions or uprisings because of the flag. He feels if there was really a problem it should have been brought up two months ago, not during Veterans week. "No action should be taken. We don't want any repercussion," said Roger. "We just want Cody to be proud of what he's doing."

    Racial tension? What kind of crap is that? If the American flag creates racial tension we have a far more serious problem in this country.

    This just another case of political correctness run amuck.

    If you want to look for the folks who are offended by the American flag, you probably don't have to look any farther than this school's administration.

    Thanks for the link.

    And for the school to placate to racist Hispanics is deplorable. This is the United States. There is nothing racial about displaying the flag of our country.

    Why do you not consider this important?

    What the hell from?? What a sad day in this country when one has to be "protected" because one chooses to display our flag.

    The issue isn't the flag; the issue is the perceived (and sometimes real) notion that we must cater to somebody who "might" be offended at our flag???????

    Please.
