    No i think people should try to respect other peoples likes.However nobody should be forced to celebrate anything.

    If the wearing of the American flag/colors on shirts or headbands causes tension anywhere in the US, something is wrong.

    A lecture/class on the history of the US flag may be in order.

    If wearing a gay pride shirt is enough to get kids kicked out of class, I have absolutely no problem with the American flag on a t-shirt being enough to do the same.

    The principal should be fired, and the students should sue him into oblivion. He's probably some NEA politically correct jerk anyway

    Weird how you see no difference between a t-shirt promoting a sexual act and a shirt depicting the American flag. I'm failing to see the comparison.

    if the American flag offends someone TFB

    plenty of honest citizens would be offended by what they see as deviancy

    Re: Should school kids be kicked off campus for t-shirts with the American flag on it

    While I strongly oppose the actions taken, a question has arisen from this thread.

    If the students were actually causing or had the potential to cause a disruption due to their clothing choices, what were the school authorities supposed to do to prevent it?

    As I understand it, the action taken might have defused the immediate situation.

    So was it the right answer at the time?

    Why would a t-shirt depicting the flag of our country cause a problem?

    apparently people who are hostile to the country that is giving them a free education might have been upset. Those are the ones whose heads should be cracked if they attacked people wearing american flags. If they are offended they should GTF out of the usa
