Two California High School Students Recount Being Told to Turn their American Flag Shirts "Inside Out"; They Refused - Video 5/7/10
Here is video of two California High School students who were ordered to remove their American Flag shirts on "Cinco de Mayo," or "turn the shirts inside out" so that it was difficult to see.
The two boys in the video said they refused because they believed "it would be disrespectful." They are right - it would have been. No school official in America should be telling students to disrespect the flag of the United States!
One of the boys said "I never thought I would be on national television for wearing an American Flag shirt."
Good grief! What have we come to in America? Have people forgotten this is the United States? Just because there are people who want to observe "Cinco de Mayo" does not mean that on that day this country ceases to be the United States! If they want to celebrate "Cinco de Mayo" as a National Holiday, they need to do it in Mexico!
These boys are courageous, as well as the other three students who did the same. They are to be commended for their devotion to our nation.
