Imagine what would happen if he had a picture of Jesus on his bumper.
This kid just needs to go get a GED and move on with his life.
Screw that dumb high school.
Wonder which “Confederate Flag” they were referring to?
Like it or not, there was a southern army and that’s history not bigotry.
Situational ethics. If my group like it, it is ok, if we don’t like it, ‘off with their heads!’
Southernphobe haters here in 3....2.....1....
But this young man does not understand: his absolute masters have spoken, there are no First Amendment rights. They have said so.
This country’s greatest is slipping away right before our eyes.
The socialists are trying to say it means only one thing: racism. Their favorite boogyman.
One more reason to Home-School!
Meanwhile school officials in mexicalifornia suspend student with an American flag shirt on cinco demayo day, we dont want to upset our nieghbors.
Slap a Mexican flag sticker over it and everything will be copacetic...
If I were a supporter of the Confederate flag I think I would object to some Yankee kid flying the flag with the word ‘redneck’ painted on it. Kind of reinforces some negative stereotypes if you ask me.
Would he be suspended if he was flying a rainbow flag?
I doubt it, probably made class president.
Now if it was a homosexual rainbow flag, then the national media would be going nuts.
The one that has 'redneck' written on it. There's a picture of it with the story.
New Jersey STAYS insane.
He would have been okay if he was flying the flag of Al Qaeda or the Muslim Brotherhood.
Too bad there isn’t something in the US Constitution guaranteeing free speech...
Yesterday was Seven's first birthday and she went to all the pet stores to pick out her presents.
Nobody said one bad word about her bandana.
