    Agreed. Can't believe the school didn't even fire the Principal.

    9 times out of 10 I'd put more trust in school authorities than 17 year-olds when it comes to determining what is and isn't an acceptable message being expressed on clothing. I see this as the 1 out of 10 since I believe the school officials brought this one on themselves IF they encouraged the wearing of Mexican flag colors. If they didn't, I'd give the school officials a break since the safety of the student body is their concern, not mine.

    Hey stupid, these kids were told thay could wear the shirts ANYDAY except this day. If the shirts were acceptable on May 4th and May 6th then why the fuck are they not acceptable on May 5th? The mexicans were allowed to wear shirts depicting the mexican flag but the other kids couldn't wear a shirt depicting the US flag. If you don't see the problem with that picture then you are as stupid as Zona and Ravi. Just what country do they or you think this is?

    Google is your friend (especially when it helps prevent you from making an ass of yourself). :thup:

    the hitler youth can wear them all year long, the school should be able to reign them in to prevent violence that one day.

    No evidence of hitler youth or violence resulting from wearing patriotic clothing in this case. These kids are going to win the suit. Unfortunately, the school will settle out of court, so we will not get a Supreme COurt ruling on this.

    The article made no mention of the ACLU that I saw. And no I didn't google the story to find out if the ACLU got involved. But I suppose sending a letter when they usually send a team of lawyers is par for the course.
