as much as a dick move it was, the kid has the right to freely express himself.

Those touchy, feely, new age assholes. If the shirt is up to the dress code, then don't fucking send the kid home.

End of story.

But didnt we BUY this land from mexico?
Yes yes with the whole mexican-american war and all but IN THE END
we paid for it so I wouldnt say we stole it.
This land wouldnt be what it is today if it wasnt for America.

It'd look exactly like Tijuana. One big ass Tijuana.
you ever been down there, it's hella dirty.

this is really stupid, and whats more stupid is that I think the kids were just messing around for some attention and they sure did get some

anyway thanks to them my English teacher found this article on the internet and happened to print it out for the entire class and asked us to write an essay about what we think =.=

thats messed up, but i remember hearing a few years ago that some kid was suspend from school for having his countries flag on his backpack. the messed up part of this is that he did nothing wrong he was just showing love to the country of his birth, he's from columbia (i think) and it was during hispanic heritage moth at that school. also i think it was in cali but i not sure.

i dont think the kids were sent home just for wearing the shirts, but because it was provoking the mexicans and could possibly cause a riot, so the school kinda did do their job to try to avoid an outbreak of a fight and since the percentage of the mexicans (40%)is almost half the school it could be a big fight. another thing was that these students planned to wear the shirts so this all happened on purpose and they were possibly desperate kids who wanted to be remebered in history as white boys who were stupid enough to wear shirts with the american flag on it. an their main reason for wearing the shirts was for patriotism, well if they really are patriots then why not wear the flag every single day then ill believe that they are true patriots and not kids making excuses for attention. talk about racism and disrespect. -.-

A "purchase" made with a gun pointed at you isn't really much of a deal is it?

So I take it you mean to imply that you do not think Mexicans are good stewards of their land? Say it ain't so!!

At least in the US we have entrusted the wasting and despoiling of our natural resources to corporations; which is soooo much more efficient than depending on the poverty of millions of peons to destroy their environment.

My natural sarcasm aside; I still say that mankinds biggest threat is from his fellow man. To put it in the common vernacular "There is always someone willing and eager to piss on the parade.".

When I was in high school we'd have a spirit week and on that friday we'd all wear our class colors... Senior's in red, Juniors in green, sophomores in yellow, Freshmen in blue....

Well one time a freshman decided to wear a red shirt... needless to say this caused an uproar within the senior's bullies of the school and they beat the crap out of him...

Same scenario in this case:
People of Mexican descent may be offended that an American is acting out in such a manner on their holiday.

Even though it may look like a small problem, it can easily explode into a bigger problem... Hence the principals decided to remove the problem from the school completely before things got out of hand.

Being a shit disturber is fun until someone gets really upset and decides to go loco on your ass.

Seriously? Who care about the Mexican holiday? I goes to school in New York CIty, and everytime there are holidays, we would get a lot of days off. Just because the school has majorities of Hispanics and celebrating Mexican holiday, it doesn't mean that other student have to participate in it.
