Those who hide the truth or prevent the truth from being known, are the very ones who wish to hide the real truth and rewrite history.

FARMINGTON: Confederate flag cap dispute leads to lawsuit

Posted by mythoughtsandnews on November 24, 2006

A Farmington High School freshman suspended from school in September for wearing a Confederate flag cap and T-shirts to school sued the school district and school officials in federal court in St. Louis Tuesday, alleging the school district policy is unconstitutional and discriminatory.

According to the lawsuit, a coach or teacher took student Bryce Archambo’s baseball cap away on Sept. 27. The cap bore a Confederate flag and the words “C.S.A. Rebel Pride, 1861.” An assistant superintendent spoke with Archambo’s father and told him that his son was prohibited from wearing anything with a Confederate flag “due to the alleged inherent racism that such insignia sends.”

Teachers are supposed to teach about history and not try to rewrite history in to what they want it to be. The teachers are the racists. A symbol is only a symbol of hate when those that fear, or do not understand it, give it the wrong meaning. The teachers are the ones saying that any one who wears a Confederate Flag is a racist.
