  • Are you kidding me, my kids would be be sent to school in an American flag shirt everyday after that, or not going back to that school ever again. Maybe they should have sent home the mexicans that were being so offended if they were afraid of fights. This is just down right rediculous.

  • I can't watch the video, because I have HughesNet (my only option aside from dial-up) and I'll get punished for streaming a video, so....

    Assuming you aren't misleading us, "WOW" is about all I have to say.

  • Thanks, TN! That explained it much better. It's still worthy of a "WOW".

  • Pretty sure they WERE out to make a statement. Whether or not they were out to start a fight is another story. It's ok to wear a flag shirt on any day you want, but to team up to start a fight is another story. It would have been like me to do something like this on my own, but not to cause problems for others. Which, at the same time, would piss me off if any freakin' Mexican got mad at me for making my own statement! The same as not freakin' wearing Christmas clothes to school. On Christmas, if you show up with a Chanukka shirt, or your best Gothic clothes, I'm not gonna get pissy and complain to send someone home.

    Grow up. Both parties.
