Five California High School Students Ordered to Remove "American Flag T-Shirts" on "Cinco de Mayo" - Video 5/6/10
Here is a video report on five California high school students who were sent home for wearing "American Flag t-shirts" to school on "Cinco De Mayo" day. They were told they could wear the shirts on "any other day," but not on Cinco de Mayo, since it "might offend Mexican-Americans."
What? Why would the American Flag offend Mexican-AMERICANS?!
One student said they were told to take the shirts off, or they would be suspended. They chose to just leave school.
The school district is saying they don't agree with the local school's decision.
