Students and Flag T-shirts: Four Americans Singled Out

Four students have been singled out for wearing American flag t-shirts on Cinco de Mayo, as a result have become the focus of media attention. Live Oak High School officials asked these four students to take their t-shirts off and turn them inside-out so that other students could not see the American flag.

The reason for this was to avoid any confrontations during Cinco de Mayo. This has already caused a storm with more than 200 Hispanic students walking out of the school to demonstrate their support for Mexico. This is certainly big news and has now gone viral.

Live Oak sophomore said “It’s disrespectful to do it on Cinco de Mayo.” He went on to say “They can be a patriot on some other day. Not that specific day.” There have been calls for the four students to be suspended or expelled, but is this taking things too far?

According to MorganHillTimes, the four students who wore the red white and blue flag t-shirts said that by not allowing them to wear them was a violation of the First Amendment.

Do you think that it was right to ask the students to turn their t-shirts inside out?
