    Via JWF, this will probably be the outrageous outrage of the day. A 13-year-old boy has flown the flag on the back of his bike to and from his middle school for a couple of months, in part to honor the military service of his grandfather. This week, according to the family, the school told Cody Alicea to remove the flag … just in time for Veterans Day. The reason? Other students complained about the American flag:

    I am so thankful I'm not raising my children in that school zone.

    Anyone and everyone who is offended by our nation's flag should just pack up and leave. Go away!

    I'm trying to think how it's "racist" to fly an American flag.

    it's not about it being racist. it's about them having racial tensions at the school and trying to keep them tamped down. i think they went overboard. but honestly? i think flying a flag from one's bike is silly and you have to ask why the kid is doing it.

    Disgusting.

    Flying the American Flag is Racist Provocation?

    Only if one is actually a Racist oneself.
