Students kicked off California campus for wearing American flag t-shirts!


Cinco de Mayo

On any other day at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Daniel Galli and his four friends would not even be noticed for wearing T-shirts with the American flag. But Cinco de Mayo is not any typical day especially on a campus with a large Mexican American student population.

Galli says he and his friends were sitting at a table during brunch break when the vice principal asked two of the boys to remove American flag bandannas that they wearing on their heads and for the others to turn their American flag T-shirts inside out. When they refused, the boys were ordered to go to the principal’s office.

“They said we could wear it on any other day,” Daniel Galli said, “but today is sensitive to Mexican-Americans because it’s supposed to be their holiday so we were not allowed to wear it today.”

Where is the “mainstream” media with their coverage of this story? If Mexican kids were sent home from school for wearing a Mexican flag t-shirt I’m sure you’d be hearing about it everywhere! Now American kids are being dismissed from school for wearing American flag t-shirts, in America, and the silence is deafening.
