Hundreds of Hispanic Students Leave School & Hold March Demanding Respect

What country are we in? 200 students left school and held a march today following the reports yesterday that 4 students dare wear American flag shirts on Cinco de Mayo.

MorganHill Times reported:

About 200 Hispanic teens are marching in Morgan Hill yelling “We want respect!” and “Si se puede!” in reaction to a controversy ignited when the Live Oak High School principal effectively sent four students home for wearing T-shirts with American flags on them during Cinco de Mayo.

Mexican-American students felt the students were being disrespectful on the only day they celebrate their heritage while students sporting red, white and blue said it violated their First Amendment rights.

Six police cars and a Morgan Hill motorcycle officer have been cruising alongside the large group as it marches.

The group – mostly high school students – walked out of school this morning after the story of four students who were sent home because they wore American flag T-shirts went viral on TV and online. Many wear red, white and green and two large Mexico flags can be seen at the front of the line.

The students say they want people to know they’re proud of their heritage and they believe wearing red, white and blue on Cinco de Mayo is disrespectful.

Yes try that in Mexico as an immigrant and you will be deported pronto...I see we are headed for a cultural war between Americans and those who live here but don’t ASSimilate into American culture language and customs. All those PC freaks have caused this. Time to throw all illegals out and let them see how well they will be treated in their home counties. It is apparent to most it is now US or them.

Considering it was the White students who were actually shown the disrespect by the vice-principal...shouldn't it be them marching?

Someone needs to inform these kids that this is America and they can either take it or leave it...literally.

The whole thing is totally absurd...I'm of French descent...maybe I should start asking for more respect on Bastille Day??

I think the term “give them” happens daily in many public schools Nana - lots of kids don’t earn them, but are just given them. Most of these kids will drop out before senior year anyway.

There is something wrong with this sentence.

Isn't Mexican Independence Day on Sept. 16? Anyway, I celebrate my heritage every day of the year. What do they mean "the only day the celebrate their heritage?" Losers!

they believe wearing red, white and blue on Cinco de Mayo is disrespectful

"WE will tell you when you can wear your flag colors, gringos! You WILL respect us. And by the way, you evil, racist, Nazi, gringo bigots, we DEMAND to be allowed to live amongst you. We demand NOT to be deported to our home country...where everybody is so much better than you are!"

I know what country we are in, anyone that has an objection to our flag needs to go to another country. The first mistake this school made was to allow a Cinco de Mayo celebration at school. It is not a real holiday in any country- only a small part of Mexico recognizes it. As far as respect- where is the respect for our country from these students? If they do not feel this is their country, and/or are not citizens they need to remove themselves from this country they do not respect or want to be a part of.

Look at our tax $'s being wasted on La Raza wanna bes. Any federal money per day per student for these A$$holes should be deducted from the school's budget. Only in America is fly our flag or showing our American colors a bad thing.

On the way to work this morning I was listening to KSFO. A woman called in and related the story of how the mob of Latino students attacked her car yesterday in downtown Morgan Hill, because she waved an American flag. There were police all over, but they did nothing. She was forced to run a red light to get away from them. Then a policeman stopped her and said that his watch commander had ordered him to arrest this woman. Ultimately he did not do so, but she was pretty shook up.

Why on earth would you give them diplomas ???

Because most of them will get their meaningless diplomas anyway, and by giving them their worthless diplomas now we save about $12k/year per student. Deporting them helps to reduce the welfare rolls (I realize that all of them may not be illegals or anchor babaies)

Six police cars and a Morgan Hill motorcycle officer have been cruising alongside the large group as it marches.

I believe there are laws regarding leaving school without supervision. Bring in the vans and haul them to jail. Tell them they can sit in a cell or sit in a classroom.
