I like how the OP start by trying to make the situation look like innocent kids wearing the US flag, to him/her admiring they hate refugees and these kids wore the flag to intimidate. Which one is it?
By the way, those kids are scum for trying to intimidate behind the American flag. Say what you want to say straight up, and don't hide behind the flag. Pussies.

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.
If you hate America so much that you can't stand to see our flag's colors, GET THE **** OUT!
Actually they are displaying the flag colors inappropriately.
The flag should not be used as part of a costume or athletic uniform, except that a flag patch may be used on the uniform of military personnel, fireman, policeman and members of patriotic organizations
So while they may have been denounced as racist by some, I would denounce them for the way they are displaying the flag that represents my country.

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.
wait, what? I'm afraid I will need you to explain it anyway. Red, white, and blue are racist colors?
Red, White and Blue can be symbol of sincere love for this country. But on the darker side, wearing red white and blue, depending on the context can mean extreme nativism and an aversion to those who are not of your stock i.e brown people. But you guys already know this so why am I explaining it?

I'm in 2 minds about this - I can understand that the refugees may be upset, especially if they come from a war torn country where America has been involved...as the coach said.....their normal colours were black & orange

Man thus is crazy. Now we can't even be patriotic without having to apologize for offending some a$$ hole that thinks we shouldn't be able to fly our own country's flag. The flag of the country that just allowed you in because you were unable to stay in your country because of what ever reason, and is giving you a chance at a better life but you are going to come in and start making waves and stirring up bs. If you don't like it then there are a mess of other countries out there go to one of them.
It is so shameful that our children are being forced to apologize for showing love for the colors that there grandparents, parents and all fought and died to defend.
Get out! This is AMERICA. You come here then you except that. Stop trying to force your country's ideology down our throats. And definitely by all means you have a problem with me and my family flying our flag. Bring it on. I'll paint my entire truck to look like a flag. And I'll use anyone who starts on me for doing so or threatens my family for doing so as a mother $%&-@+# hood ordament. This is getting stupid. These freaking people have to fall in line and follow Americas laws, get out, or die. And most of us are so tired of this constant bs, that we really don't give a flying $%&+ which.
Leave our flag alone before you become burried under it.
