US School Tells American boy to take down his flag UPDATE

The story I covered several days ago gained massive national attention today.

The School finally changed their decisions that was made on veterans week when they told Cody to take down his flag from his bike when he is on campus due to some students complaining about it. The School officials reason was that they didn't want any racial tension between the students.

When he rode from his home to school on Monday, he was followed by a parade of people on motorcycles. The group said the Pledge of Allegiance upon arriving at school.

"It means a lot to me," a tearful Alicea said after arriving at school.

  3. Wow, that was awesome. Glad they overturned it! The school board should have known though that this was going to create some tension.

  4. Good to see common sense prevail. I don't understand how flying your national flag is racist. Anybody taking it that way clearly has some personal issues.

  14. I'm glad they made justice, they even could demand school because violation of expression. Poor kid, perhaps he won't forget that bad moment.

  20. ^ I think the article said that there had been some tension during Cinco de Mayo, so they were trying to alleviate it.

    Yeah, Tazo isn't for everyone. Good Earth makes some tasty goodness though which is a decent alternative. Thanks for the comment!

  23. I still have issues that they told him that he couldn't fly the US flag on US soil at a school run by the US government where they have a US flag flying out front.....

    Sometimes common sense isn't good enough for some people....
