Tensions are rising at a California high school where five students were sent home for wearing American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo.
A California high school principal has apologized for telling five students they couldn't wear U.S. flag shirts on Cinco de Mayo, the local superintendent said Friday.

The racist needs to resign.
200 Mexican kids walked out of class and demanded respect, waving Mexico flags.
Will they get punished??
Of course not.
Fire the darn principal. Kids should sue the districts pants off...but they’ll never win...they’re white americans.
This schmuck needs to go. Apologizing doesn’t cut it.
It isn't a Mexican holiday, it isn't even a holiday in Mexico. It is a Holiday created by a beer company around a semi-obscure battle that, wait for it.. the United States helped arm Mexico for, resulting in the victory. It did play a part in our Civil War by keeping France from gaining a foothold back on the continent and supporting the Confederacy.
Perhaps the overzealous high school principal can find a new job at a high school in Mexico.
No one has the b@lls to fire someone with this name....
They should sue anyway.
The school district and the individuals (anti-American school officials) involved.
Let them feel a little fear when they get served with a lawsuit.
We have to keep pushing back.
STOP CELEBRATING A MEXICAN HOLIDAY....PERIOD!! This is a NEW phenonomen....never heard of Cinco de mayo til the last decade or so. STOP THE MADNESS!!
He’s got a lot bigger problems than an apology. There is going to be violence in his school and he and whoever else has promoted this hatred of America is going to have blood on their hands.
It’s NOT a Mexican Holiday.
Fire the racist.
Too right. The disrespectful little bastiches probably don't even capitalize "Americans".
“This schmuck needs to go. Apologizing doesnt cut it.”
You got it.
It appears that for teachers, the fear of Mexicans is stronger than their love of freedom.
That’s the battle Arizona is waging.
Apologize my b**8, er my Obama.
Fire that SOB and send him to Mexico...where he can coddle all the kids he wants to.
That is the problem, the media will support him, the government agencies involved will support him. The 200 students who beat or kill those 5 students when it blows up again won’t be in trouble. They’ll more likely blame the victims for instigating the violence.
The Principal divided his students by race on purpose and this is what he wanted, he was “organizing” them. Ex-Students (probably with faculty blessing) were the ones leading that march today, not the current students.
They are radicalizing these kids for the far left.
Oh, man, that reminds me of the riot that broke out last year when some kids wore American flags on St Patrick’s Day. /s
I would have to say its the teachers who encourage and lead this crap.
I grew up in a border town in TX. Plenty of mexicans. In fact, more mexicans than whites.
Anyway, I never heard of Cinco de mayo. No one celebrated it. And believe you me, our non-white neighbors used any excuse in the book to have a party and drink.
Schools never taught us about mexico’s history either. I do seem to remember Alamo history being taught.
What the heck has happened to our Country and to our schools?
I read that two of the kids are MexicanAmerican.
LIBERALISM is what happened to our schools....LIBERALISM.....it’s a MENTAL DISORDER.
Just like the idiot principal in Ann Arbor who took black kids on a field trip while leaving white kids behind.
BTW the locals are screaminng bloody murder about it making national news, they apparently don’t care much for the sunlight.
He apologizes but would do the exact same thing tomorrow! We need to get rid of forced, public schools under the threat of force if one does not send their children there. They are the exact place that controlling liberals like to work and....well....control!
LOL good one! You need to send that into FOX or Redeye and maybe get some on air play with that.
“There is going to be violence in his school and he and whoever else has promoted this hatred of America is going to have blood on their hands.”
His apology has nothing to do with his underlying mindset, his bitterness over the fact that Mexico once claimed large parts of CA and a culture that embraces defeating the “melting pot” concept.
And then we get to the background music provided by the leftist drumbeat.
When the citizens of Mexico start paying the taxes that pay the salaries of these liberal MORONS....then, maybe they can display the flag of Mexico. Unless or until then.....
display the flag of the United States of America...ONLY. You know....the flag that represents the taxpayers that pay your very undeserved leftist salaries (at least....for the present).
I am wondering how displaying the Confederate Flag would go over, since all these liberals are so gung-ho about displaying flags of different “cultures”.
Another racist principal who should be fired.
In Houston a boy was suspended for being upset that the school flew the MEXICAN flag and tried to take it down. It flew above the US flag on the pole, the US flag was upside down.
Who cares what this moron said. At this point they are trying to avoid a lawsuit. Send his rear home. ...back to Mexico. I have never seen a group such as this that comes over here and basically get everything for free and then demand respect. Freaking amazing
Last I heard, the students got dinged with unexcused absences. How about that? I think the students who wore the foreign flags need some kind of sanctions....
I'll accept Cinco de Mayo as a legitimate holiday around the same time I celebrate Kwanzaa.
How sad this is.
My mother’s side of the family is of Mexican descent. My grandfather came from Mexico.....LEGALLY!
(I rarely admit that)
My mother and father refused to teach their kids spanish. Even though my mother spoke it fluently. She told us we live in America and are American. We speak English.
We celebrated the heck out of the Fourth of July, loved baseball, apple pie, and anything else American.
What is wrong with these people? Why move here if you can’t embrace and love this Country?
Mental disorder is right.
They should be.
Cinco is a holiday regarding a defeat OF French
not BY Americans
America offers a much better home and more freedom than Mexico
They should be happy and grateful to see American flags anytime of year.
Mexicans are oppressed by Mexicans, not us.
The principal and assistant principal, should be fired on the spot.
MEXICO: Good enough to wave a flag about. Not good enough to live in.
Fire his insensitive, racist A$$!
That should be on a bumper sticker.
The Asst. Principal isn’t white, so the Civil Rights Act protects him, unlike the white, American flag shirted students.
Liberalism has been the root of all the evils that have worked toward destroying America for over half a century (or perhaps for a whole century). My question is....do they really outnumber us? If not, why the HELL are they seemingly winning?????
Wake the hell up, people. We’re in a fight for our very lives now. This is what decades of complacency and apathy has gotten us. Getting along to get along ala RINOs has screwed the pooch for us all. We are now in a full-out war with the “enemy within”. If we lose this one, America as a free nation is doomed for generations to come, if not forever.
It’s time to turn this around (actually, it’s past time). It’s time to take a stand NOW....before it’s too damned late.
You are 100% right. What a disgrace to this country he is.
Let him resign and go home to Mexico. He’s obviously not an American...
That was the point of my comment....
He is a fool and a tool. Return to your “home” country, you misguided loser.
