If they allow
anyone and everyone
to openly celebrate
their heritage
their religion
their ideology
etc.
and have a day for
everyone who wants
one, then yes.


There would not be enough days in the year.


On a side note, what is up with your post formatting?

Protecting the minority from the majority, for all intents and purposes, is what our Constitution does, yet so many on this site completely miss that as they run their thoughtless pro-Amerika ideology.

Just say that some many brains are in skulls but so few are used for thought.

A lot of people skip long paragraphs.
My formatting makes it easier to read,
as you probably know the average reading level in the US is around 8th grade.

I try to make my points in highlights for the reader
who is challenged by long paragraphs.

I try to make my posts as easy to read as possible
and not above the ability of the average American reader.

Just trying to be sensitive to the fact that most people
can't or won't read real paragraphs but
will read short pithy statements,
we have been well trained by the media.

True but then without me,
there is no real fun.

Just everyone patting each other on the back.
How much fun is that to participate in?

I really spice up a thread
and get the old adrenaline flowing!

No one ever agrees with me and that's
half the fun of participating in the threads!

When kids are in America, and going to school, then they are already deemed Americans. Whether actual citizens or related to one who is either a citizen or a legal alien resident, or with landed immigrant status, and these kids still don't feel American, then this is the fault of their parents, their peers or their school leaders or other civic leaders. Plus some of the blame is on themselves for not being responsible enough to recognize their current "American" status they already have.

There is no valid reason why they otherwise should not feel "American" Their school is already failing them by not celebrating this day with it's current label.
Not celebrating that is not going to fix the problem, only make it more pronounced because of this. The school leadership has just failed them again.

adrenaline is more useful for getting in a fight than it is for being rational.

with that said, the less adrenaline feeding this hysteria, the better.

I agree, go kids!!!!!!!!!!!!

The last time I check we are still living in America and people still have the freedom to show their pride in their nation, the hell with those that come to the US and wants to feel offended by the way Americas freedoms work.

Shame on anybody that think Americans should no be proud of been part of this nation.

Heck wouldn't it be a perfect way to show and teach the foreign students about the USA?.
I bet they loved it also good on those students.

So for the Kids in America here is Kids in America

It is, but at the same time, everyone in the high school should be American, so there is no minority in this case to protect.

Isn't that what we are told by the PC Police over and over again?

BooHoo!! Someone's feelings might get hurt!

SMH

Really? This is what it's come to?

Cancel Independence day then! Cancel Memorial Day! Cancel President's day too!

Just fold up, and rename the USA to the Divided States of that Country North of Mexico - the DSCNM

I just want to know why people feel bothered or upset about groups having a pride day this, or history month that?

Who cares? I mean it's just some kind of self-admiration for them and people like themselves. Why does it matter in the big scheme of things or bother people?

It doesn't bother me, but then, I was taught that we all take out turns having our special days when we are celebrated or celebrate things about us.

The concept in our house began with birthdays. On my birthday, the day was focused on me, my day, ME pride day if you will. However, on my sister's birthday, it was her day, focused on her, her pride day. Those days always felt a little exclusionary to me, but that was part of the experience of growing up and learning to take turns.

It is just one day, and odds are those other kids would have special days of their own at some point during the year to celebrate their pride.

What is more interesting to me is groups taking stories out of context for culture war purposes.

This school put "America Pride Day" up for a vote to the student body and the students themselves...by a ratio or 2 to 1 voted against not having "America Pride Day"..

The school activities director just speculated that they might have voted that way because some people felt excluded.

The students themselves decided to nix it.

"America Pride Day" came in 3rd amongst students..."College Day" wearing apparel of a College you would like to go to came in first.

But for Culture war purposes...ya gotta spin a story like it is the Socialist Anti-American education system vs Patriotic Youth!!

When the Patriotic Youth...decided to not have "America Pride Day"

The BS gets exhausting....

Oh, well, then they should have had American Pride Day. As someone already helpfully pointed out, the COTUS does exist to protect minorities and clearly the proud Americans were the minority. Shouldn't their tender feelings be protected and they not be excluded? Where the inclusiveness? Aren't proud Americans special and worthy of celebrating too?

Stupidity on both sides of the issue.

First off, who cares if they have an "America day" at the school? This is America.

Also, who cares about "America day" to begin with? It perpetuates an ultra-nationalist mentality that I find to be quite dangerous.


What makes America day "ultra nationalist"? Do you feel the same about cinco de mayo? I'm guessing you have some rationalization for why that's completely different.
