the kid that took down the flag is obviously a **** stirrer, but both in this case and the one with the american flag the actions are unwarranted
"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)
It's a huge celebration of Mexican independence, celebrated widely in border states. Students put on pageants, sing traditional songs in Spanish, schools are festooned with Mexican flags.
Most kids- latino, black, or white- just consider it another fun holiday.
Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
If I was a parent to these students? I would make those on the schoolboards life a living hell and I do mean that. They would get an ear full and never get rid of me til they made it right cause this is all kinds of wrong.
I do not give a crap if these kids were doing this to piss other students off via peaceful protest by wearing their USA Flag T-Shirts. Suck if the hell up and deal. This is still the U.S.A. and that is that!

That said, there are clearly some real ****-stirrers behind all of this stupid, moronic, hate-driven, game of oneupmanship faux nationalistic idiocy. Classic bigotry used as a tool to distract the masses from seeing who it is that is REALLY scewing them over and how they are doing it.
