Valley students had chosen to wear red, white and blue... ..."Any normal person, any educated person can look at that and think what the hell are these kids thinking," said Wheat.

"Kids are kids, I get it, but I do have questions. I want to know why."

Students were denounced as racist and forced to hand-deliver a letter of apology to another school because some of the students chose to wear red, white and blue to a basketball game... Which offended some of the students of the other school. Why? Because some of those students were refugees.
To make matters worse, the assistant coach of the "offending" school apparently has no idea why anyone would have worn those colors or what they could possibly be thinking in doing so.
Our country is under attack... Not from foreign militaries, but from hostile ideology brought here by refugees.

If you hate America so much that you can't stand to see our flag's colors, GET THE **** OUT!

How good that you don´t have real problems over there.
If some whine about US colors and the others whine about that whining, Trump and the surrounding billionairs and militarists, that for sure are only there to protect the left behind and because of that concerned and enraged not rich rightwingers, wasn´t even enough for the former USA.
Seems as everything has to get a bit harder, maybe speed up before crashing into the maybe own build wall!

So let me get this straight .....some refugee students complained about others wearing the American flag colors ...the colors of a flag that the refugees are suppose to be embracing as as their new home and country ? Then they need to go back to their previous country and embrace that . ..and take the teachers who made the students write an apology with them ! ..Get out and don't come back !

They won the game too.

The illegal migrants and refugees should go back home if they don't like the colors of the American flag.

Which illegal migrants and refugees complained, exactly?
The sources provided by the OP are somewhat ambiguous on that point.

The ones on the left side of the court, of course.




Supporters of the Des Moines North High School basketball team, many of whose players are from refugee families, were offended when fans of Valley High School’s basketball team wore red, white and blue last week, The College Fix reports. “This is an example of BLATANT racism,” said Ty Leggett, a Valley High School alum, on the Valley High School – WDMCS Facebook page.

“ALL participating should have been pulled and banned from ALL VHS extracurricular events for the remainder of the year! As a parent, I’d be mortified that my son or daughter thought this way, acted in this fashion and refrained from taking a stand against this 21st century inexcusable behavior!”

I don't see the part where illegal migrants or refugees instigated anything. Your quote would seem to indicate that it was supporters of the team, not players or families, who made comment.

More proof that what once mind expanding seats of learning are now nothing more than a breeding ground for petty tyrants.

Yeah, they were the loudest.

"stupid flag Racists!"

Yea, I would not last in school today.
I knew things would be crap when I got older if you could get expelled for being held down and beat up by others because you were in a fight... happened to me and the kids were 3 years older than me.. never knew or talked to them before hand, they were just bored. Looking back I wish I would have asked if I punch you (the principal) would he be expelled for being in a fight because that's what you just taught me.
Sorry.. back to the OP


This shouldn't go any farther than a talk with the principle, if that. Just tell them at that point you are representing our school etc.. but thats only if they HAD to do something.

Whats the difference between the first in the 2nd row and the fifth on the 5th row



From an esthetic point of view I like the first on the 3rd row.
