A California school has done a U-turn after it forced a student to remove an American flag attached to his bike, saying the Stars and Stripes could spur racial tensions on campus.

I’m not sue-happy by any means, but sometimes idiots like these school officials just NEED a good suing.
Just learned the precise details of this reversal.
The kid can only fly the US flag on his bike if it is flown below the Mexican and hammer and sickle flags. /s
the “party of the easily offended” use litigation to get their objectives done, so why not? I hope the kid graduates and brings a BIGGER flag onstage to piss off the mexicans.
*F* the complainers - and how many of them are illegal? Let them fly their Mexican flags - preferably in Mexico.
The American Flag on a bike owend by an American student attending an American school might cause racial tensions?
These people are IDIOTS.
This is America. If you have a problem with that PISS OFF....
ACLU will be on the case, right?
That was fast! The websites been crashed all day and the phone lines jammed.The school should have to agree to explain to all the parents why it IS ok to have OUR flag and not a foreign flag. If some of the students and parents don’t like it too bad. Just further proof if you put enough pressure on these commies they WILL back down
There’s been about 5-7 threads on this all day. And if even HALF of the pissed off FReepers were able to get through on the phone and by e-mail to the idiot principal....
I’m guessing he had heard plenty!
Cram PC down their throats and they will start backing down.
The right decision - at last - and only after the original idiotic decision banning the U.S. flag being displayed on a child’s bicycle was put in the national spotlight and the school officials, now embarrassed, were forced to cut the out-of-control PC crap.
Typical rats - thsy like to skulk around in the shadows and do their dirty work out of the sunlight.
These rats couldn’t take the exposure once their idiocy hit FOX News and the internet.
Why do these kinda things NEVER happen to me?
I would love the opportunity to take these idiots to court and sue them silly.
More like they need a little of this, make them think twice next time.
:-) Ahhh, life is good!
Geez, ya think? What was so tough about handling the situation like this new method the first time. Just another lazy so-called public servant looking for the easy way out first.
Heard the audio today, principle sounds like he doesn’t want any trouble with the Mexicans. Is this America?
Can't help but ponder that last part...
