KTVU San Francisco: Morgan Hill Students Stir Cinco De Mayo Controversy

| | Comments (1)

Several kids in California got sent home because they were wearing shirts with the American flag on them on May 5th, 2010, Cinco de Mayo.

Seriously? It’s come to this? We have to be respectful of a holiday which is barely celebrated in Mexico?!

Here’s the money quote:

“He said ‘If you wear [the flag T-shirt] on any other day, it’s fine; but just because it’s today you can’t wear it,’” [Daniel] Galli said. “His exact words.”

Galli said he was told it was inappropriate to wear the shirt because “it’s supposed to be a Mexican Day and we were supposed to honor them.”

Here’s a link to the school’s official dress code.

Gang colors? Don’t wear them. Glove on one hand? Don’t do that. Showing cleavage? Don’t. American flag? Don’t wear them on May 5th or March 17th.

Oh, wait, that’s not in the school’s dress code. I just made it up, as did the idiot administrator(s) at Live Oak High…
