This is about the dumbest thing we have reported on in quite some time.
Last week, you showed the story about the northern California boy who was riding his bike to school. He became a point of controversy because when he rode his bike to school it stuck an American flag on the back of it.
The school administration told him to quit doing that. When he politely asked why? He was told some of the Hispanic kids didn't like it and they feared and an uprising. Remember, this was the same school last year that allowed Mexican kids to bring Mexican flags for Cinco de Mayo.
He told the boy with the American flag- please don't bring that to school anymore.
Well, the story was picked up all over the country. And after the school administration could not really give a reason why the little kid couldn't stick the American flag on the back of his bike anymore, the school backed down.
Let me get this straight...although it is California, this is the still the United States of America. The bicycle , flag- carrying kid was doing this to honor American vets. And he was told not to bring that flag to school anymore because the school didn't want any problems from other students and parents of a different culture that might be offended.
Common sense wins out this time.
But, what about next time?
