Today is Cinco de Mayo, and a display of American flags was organized near a high school in Morgan Hill, California, which was the site of controversy four years ago:
The case began in 2010, when four boys wearing t-shirts bearing American flags on Cinco de Mayo, when the school was decked out in Mexican flags, were told to turn the shirts inside-out, or go home.
Remembering that day, several people were waving American flags today at Live Oak High:
A repeat of the 2010 incident will not happen this year, according to the school superintendent:
Read that sentence again and then cringe at the fact that had to be said in the United States.
Apparently for some, displaying the American flag in the United States on Cinco de Mayo is “racist” or something:
What's wrong with these white people holding up American flags in Morgan hill??? Racist assholes smh—
