OK… So like I said, only in America can the English language not be recognized as it’s official language by it’s OWN LEGISLATORS.
We have Administrators in our publicly funded school systems AFRAID to allow American kids to display the American flag proudly.
We don’t want anyone getting offended. It makes our Hispanic friends feel bad. But it’s OK for our HOMEGROWN AMERICAN KIDS to feel bad when they see the Mexican flag proudly displayed on an American school campus! Not even equal time for our kids!
What happened here?
Cody Alicea rides with an American flag on the back of his bike. He says he does this to be patriotic and to honor veterans like his own grandfather, Robert. He’s had the flag on his bike for two months but Monday, was told to remove it.
A school official at Denair Middle School told Cody some students had been complaining about the flag and it was no longer allowed on school property.
Cody’s grandfather says the school was concerned about racial tensions or uprisings because of the flag. He feels if there was really a problem it should have been brought up two months ago, not during Veterans week.
AND would it have been OK if it was a Mexican flag, or “I love OBAMA”, or “I HATE OBAMA”?
We stopped keeping score for our kids when they played sports in the 80’s.
We gave trophies to all kids that participated. We had no winners or losers. We didn’t want them to feel bad.
Kids who could not keep up, we made the questions easier to answer.
A child can’t read. Give them a book from a lower grade level.
And now… you can’t bring an American flag on campus?
Sounds like the dumbing down of our future… all this, just to be sure that kids aren’t offended.
YES, it is. We are teaching our children that NOTHING matters but THEM.
Not good! We need to teach them to try harder, to push themselves to be better, lets take a line from the Army …
We need to teach them to be “All that you can be”…
Fortunately, the uproar over the American flag incident has been deafening. We need to stand up for what is right and show our children how to do the same.
