    School Makes Boy Take American Flag Off Bike

    DENAIR - 13-year-old Cody Alicea rides with an American flag on the back of his bike. He says he does this to be patriotic and to honor veterans, like his own grandfather, Robert. He's had the flag on his bike for two months but Monday, was asked told to take it down. 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.

    That's a retarded preventative measure. Likely because the bureaucracy was less than bright and they didn't want to take any flak for anything.

    How foolish - can somebody please explain to me how our flag could be construed as "offensive"?

    As far as racial tensions - just another fear card being tossed out to appease God knows who at this point. What a shame that any race would be portrayed as so insensitive to our flag that the display would cause a problem for them. I find that insulting to any implied race.

    This happened to a high school student who displayed our flag on his truck. He was told to remove it by some clown working on the school grounds but subsequently the student was allowed to continue to fly our flag.

    It has been used as a hate sign by people before. How they thought the liberals and ethnicks wouldnt be able to tell if it was being used as one or not is beyond me. Foaming rabid liberals...

    It is only offensive to those who richly deserve to be offended. **** 'em.

    Just where in the United States is the American Flag, properly flown, used as a hate sign?

    Have some bumper stickers made, about a thousand, with the flag on one side, and NASA grade glue on the other. Put one on the school officials rear bumper. If he removes it, put another one on....

    That's just the issue some people can't tell. Nobody wakes up and says "Hey I think Im going to be a hater today and use the flag as a hate sign" They just end up doing something culturally stupid.



    Well... I dunno. I think they secretly know. But hide behind ze purity of ze flag.

    Which "race" is going to be pissed off by an american flag? how the hell is displaying a US flag in the US going to increase "racial tension"? All I can figure is that there must be a bunch of muslim kids at his school. If anyone gets pissed off at seeing the American flag in America, they are more than welcome to GTFO.
