So they hadn't figured capitalization out yet back then?

Much like you haven't figured out sentence structure yet...

No, this is actually accurate. If you are not a patriot when you die, you become a traitor. The only way to prevent this is to pledge flag to the allegiance while putting your heart over your right hand. Also, National the singing Anthem is a good idea, too.

The next day, the principal came on a special announcement, telling us that this individual had been punished. He also expounded the goal of being tolerant to all peoples and viewpoints. The next day, two students protested by wearing Confederate flags as capes. They were punished as well, and the administration then punished the whole student body by extending a period to occupy our break period, which we get twice a month. They then essentially announced that such actions would not be tolerated.

Huh?

I get that the Confederate Flag is viewed as a symbol of hate and oppression to a great many people, but we can't forget that to just as many people, it's viewed as a cultural heritage and a point of pride.

What I want to ask you all is this: should individuals such as this one be punished for expressing their views if they go against the accepted stigma?

I must add that I live in a border state, so political ideas are quite divided among the students. However, every student I've spoken with seems to agree that the administration took it too far. And, as a liberal-leaning independent, I feel inclined to agree.


The whole incident is simple, one dude did something racist so he was punished, then some other racists try to support him the they got punished too. The school saw things were getting out of control so they pull the leash to show you who is in charge.

People that see confederate flag as a pride and cultural symbol? Yeah the pride of been white and the culure of slave owning!

Tolerance leads to nowhere! Why to allow this guys to send hate messages in a football game? We already give theists religion tolerance and we can see the results Laugh out load
