Will they ban the Mexican flag for safety too?
May 5 - Mexican Flag Burning Day.
Pile ‘em high!
This ruling can encompass a lot of things - Muslim head scarfs, homosexuals cross dressing, for example. Anything can be banned because of a perceived threat of violence.
They have opened quite a can of worms...
If I were a liberal Democrat in 2014, I’d be laughing and crapping on everyone too.
No one’s stopping them. :)
Impeach the appelate court justices responsible for the miscarriage of justice and their failure to uphold the Constitution they were oath bound to protect and defend.
So if some minority people might get violent over our constitutional rights then the constitutional rights mean nothing.
It seems to me that Mexicans and sodomites are more equal than U.S. patriots in today’s America.
Not safe to display American flag in American high school

Figures. It might piss off a lib-er-al or an illegal alien. On the other hand, the flag shouldn’t be worn as a shirt. Just doesn’t seem right.
Okay then. Will the school order students wearing any shirt with the Mexican flag or any Mexican saying/words to turn them inside out on Flag Day, Memorial Day, July 4th? If not why not?
Multiculturalism has finally hit paydirt. This is not a shock. You wonder why so Mexicans who come to this country still can’t and won’t speak English even after being here for a generation? Why should they? Our politicians don’t demand their assimilation into mainstream American life. They just want their votes. To these people America is just Mexico with a bunch of goodies included.
They should ban white skin for the same reason.
The proper ruling would have been...either everyone wears what they want or celebrates how they want or no one will be allowed.
Looks like the STUDENTs at that school have their work cut out for them THIS year!!!
This is a doubly-sad moment. Sad because of the ruling, and sad because, honestly, the administrators probably did head off a violent confrontation.
I read in several other stories that there is a gang problem in the school/neighborhood, and that the previous Cinco De Mayo, a group of kids held up the U.S. flag and shouted “USA! USA!.” Apparently the parents of these kids had to keep them out of school for a time, because of the threats of reprisals were so bad.
Now, it seems to me that the right thing to do would be to punish the people doing the actual threatening. I also would suggest that maybe a U.S. school is not the most appropriate place to observe a Mexican holiday. Of course, I know neither of those notions are going to happen.
So, yeah, it’s a doubly sad day. I never thought I’d see the day when I couldn’t display the U.S. flag in school, and I rue the day when doing so could get my face stomped in.
Safety from what?
This is no longer America!
