13-year-old Cody Alicea rides with an American flag on the back of his bike. He says he does this to be patriotic and to honor veterans, like his own grandfather, Robert. He's had the flag on his bike for two months but Monday, was told to take it down.
This story is dated today, although it took place on Monday.
I got home to post about it, and look what I find:
Those cockroaches sure will scurry in the daylight, won't they? This is really the part that gets me:
Edward Parraz, superintendent of the Denair Unified School District, said that a campus supervisor asked Cody to remove the flag earlier this week out of concern for his safety.
Those concerns arose from a dust-up among students last school year after some racial tensions arose when Latino students brought Mexican flags to school around Cinco de Mayo.
Anyone who has a problem with a US flag at an American school in the US--they are the problem, not the person with the US flag.
