    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

    If anything, it just shows that public schools are fascist, conformist, intolerant hellholes. I am beginning to pity any students who are being thrust into those revolving-door jokes instead of a proper private institute.
    It was Cinco de Mayo the other day. That could have something to do with the flag.
    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.

    OTOH expecting US to refrain from displaying the US flag on Cinco de Mayo, or putting up Mex flags in public schools... I mean dayum, does nobody see how nuts this is?

    Why do WE always have to be the ones to worry about offending people? Why do WE always have to be sensitive? Nobody else seems to give a flying frack if they offend US in some way.
    Well put G. I especially love the home angle, the whole thing about immigration is that until someone is naturalized they are essentially a guest here, expecting us to bend over backwards is rude at best, obnoxious under any circumstances, and just plain wrong at worst. It's like going to a fancy dinner party and leaving the host an "upper decker" for the next morning.
    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!

    It is NOT. It commemorates a victory over the French during the days of Napoleon III. Mexican independence is in September. This is NOT a huge celebration in Mexico.

    Exactly.

    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.

    It's a huge celebration in Texas, and other border states, I said.
    And yes, it is celebrated quite widely in Mexico, too.
    My dad has a place in Saltillo and lives down there nearly half the time.
    He told me they celebrate it.

    I thought it was a Hallmark Holiday. Other posts are saying that in Mexico it's just another day.

    The trully sad part, is that if this were a Mexican kid taking down an American flag, nothing would even be said about it.
