CALIFORNIA - The vice principal at Live Oak High in Morgan Hill-Californa---told five teens that if they didn't turn their American flag t-shirt inside out...they would be sent home.
He said it was because it was "Cinco de Mayo" and he didn't want to offend any Mexican-American students.
However two of the young boys were half-Mexican.
Some people say the situation at Live Oak High School could happen anywhere.
East Texans we talked to say people are too scared to offend and it all goes back to political correctness.
