There needs to be a civil rights action filed against the school, based on racial discrimination and supression of freedom of speech. Kind of an interesting twist to see white children suing for racial discrimination, but why not? If white children are to be assigned second class citizen status, then let it be by way of a formal court decision affirming the actions of the school district.

Of course nothing will be done. There is no "civil rights" organization to fund litigation on behalf of American citizens whose civil rights have been violate.

Racial Tension Mount At South Bay High School
MORGAN HILL, Calif. -- Tensions mounted at a Bay Area high school Thursday, a day after five students whipped up emotions by wearing t-shirts depicting red, white and blue American flags on Cinco de Mayo.
A group of 50-60 Latino students walked out of classes at Morgan Hill's Live Oak High early Thursday, marching to city hall and rallying to show their support for a school official.
That unidentified assistant principal had ordered the flag-wearing students on Wednesday to either go home or turn the shirts inside out.
“We knew it was Cinco de Mayo. But we just came to show our flag,” said student Dominic Maciel, one of the flag wearing students. “We didn't mean anything by it. We didn't want to start anything. Nothing like that.”
Four of the five students who wore American flags or patriotic colors on campus later attended a meeting with the superintendent of the Morgan Hill Unified School District Wednesday night.
They were facing unexcused absences because they chose to go home early rather than take off what they were wearing.
“They said we had to wear our t-shirts inside out and then we could go back to class and we said no,” said student Anthony Caravalho. “It would be disrespectful to the flag by hiding it.”
Daniel Galli, another student who was reprimanded for wearing a US flag, described what he was told by school administration.
“He said 'If you wear it on any other day, it’s fine; but just because it's today you can't wear it,'” Galli said. “His exact words.”
Galli said he was told it was inappropriate to wear the shirt because “it's supposed to be a Mexican Day and we were supposed to honor them.”
The boys said it was unfair because some students were wearing Mexican colors Wednesday.
“We're not mad that they wore their stuff,” said student Galli. “But we're mad that we were asked to change our stuff, but they could still wear their stuff.”
Caravalho also felt the action was unfair.
“I would have taken my stuff off if they had taken their stuff off too,” he said.
Some Mexican-American students KTVU spoke with said they thought wearing red, white and blue on Cinco de Mayo was disrespectful.
“It's just kinda disrespectful that they would do that on this day,” said student Victoria Wright. “I mean, we don't go around on 4th of July wearing red white and green and saying ‘Viva Mexico,’ because that's disrespectful.”
One student showed us a Mexican flag belt buckle he wore Wednesday. He disagreed with the way the American flag-wearing kids were treated.
“I think it was kind of going overboard with the suspension, but it's also kind of disrespectful because it's our day,” said student Sal Orona.
Dominic Maciel said his father is of Mexican descent.
“I have no problem with them wearing their Mexican stuff, their Mexican flags,” said Maciel. “I just thought I'd show my pride. American pride.”
The school district Wednesday issued a statement which read: “The district does not concur with the Live Oak High School administration's interpretation of either board or district policy related to these actions."

You are the one Glory. Since you did not get to leave a message for the old ----, try it again. I know, I must stop using bad language.

Message for Sal Orona. Celebrate YOUR holiday in YOUR country. Get out of mine, and take YOUR flag with you.
