Confederate flag represents exact opposite from being patriotic towards United States of America.

In a world where the hijab (viewed by many as a symbol of culture, heritage, violence, intolerance, and oppression of specific groups of people) is protected and anyone can wear one at any time... The confederate flag (viewed by many as a symbol of culture, heritage, violence, intolerance, and oppression of specific groups of people) is worthy of locking down a school... We realy need to get our priorities straightened out.

Did you read the article? It was the fight that the flag caused that made the lockdown. Not the flag itself.

The school was locked down because nigs can't control themselves and get violent if you look at them wrong or accidently step on there sneakers. The problem is not the flag or a school fight the problem is nigs.

He still raises a good point about how we view a hijab versus how we view the confederate flag. Hell at least no one is forced to raise a confederate flag

The article also said that all three students were suspended. All three. So it's not bad enough that he's harassed by these two thugs, but now he gets suspended from school because apparently he caused the harassment.

I think in this case it's relevant. They mentioned that the three who confronted him were black. I'd say the races were relevant.

Officials at Rockmart High School say the flag caused a disruption when the 10th-grader, who is white, was confronted Wednesday morning by two black students prior to school starting, a local Fox News affiliate reported.

“They wanted to confront him about what he had on his backpack. What did they say? ‘Hey man, why you doing that,’” Principal Wesley Cupp told the station.

Mr. Cupp said there was shoving and an exchange of words, but it was broken up by staff within minutes. He said no weapons were found. Still, the school was put through a lockdown drill with students kept in class after rumors surfaced of other students bringing Confederate battle flags to school, Fox reported.

Ok that's reasonable.

He said all three students involved were suspended for the disruption. When they return to school they will be offered counseling and other services to help ease tensions, Fox reported.

But they suspend the kid who did nothing wrong but wore a fucking flag.

“When you become a distraction where students can’t learn because of a distraction then that needs to be removed,” Mr. Cupp said.

Fuck you.

A minor fight broke out, and they lock down the school. What part of that is reasonable?

It is reasonable to the point that they made sure nothing was going to happen(weapons and shit.)

That depends on what "lockdown" means. Most schools have two lockdowns. One is teachers lock doors, issue no passes, and continue as normal. Another is teachers lock doors, shut off lights, draw shades, huddle kids in corner, and tell them to shut the fuck up. If there's a fight going on, saying "No one can go in the halls" until they settle the fight down and track down anyone who was skipping class who may have been a witness to ask them if they saw anything seems like a reasonable course of action.

By the criteria in the final paragraph, they need to suspend the principal Cupp.

True, but these aren't battle flags of traitors. I think the kid should be allowed to wear it, and the harrassers suspended, but I also think it's a flag of traitors and has no place in our public institutions.

This just in: The class involuntarily glanced at someone walking past the classroom door. Needless to say, he was removed from the school.

Nice, make it a race issue 'cause the kid was white, how about pointing out the black kids ganged up on him, for doing nothing but wearing a part of history. Fucking racist media murder machine...

Lincoln was a racist tyrant who didn't give a single fuck for black people. The civil war was about control. Read a book sometime.

Why has everyone become so pussified? I mean why can people just IGNORE something if it offends them. People nowadays think they have the right not to be offended. Whether it be the cry baby SJWs who post on social media or the hood rats that start fights over minor things.

A culture like this would not survive if shit got real
