Do you think it’s fair for these students to be allowed to wear these shirts but not those with an American flag? Or do you think this should not be allowable by the code of conduct? Either way, this will make your blood boil.
A California high school has agreed to allow Hispanic students to wear their “Dump Trump” t-shirts on campus despite a dress code that seems to prohibit them.
Sean Boulton, the principal of Newport Harbor High School in Newport Beach, a town south of Los Angeles, agreed to let a group of Hispanic students wear shirts denigrating GOP front runner Donald Trump.
The school’s dress code for the 2015/16 school year puts a ban on clothing with “inappropriate graphics” and clothing with a message that “denigrates others on account of gender, sexual orientation, race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, handicap or disadvantage.”
Despite those rules, school authorities are now allowing students to wear shirts attacking Trump and his voters.
One of the girls who requested the bending of the rules said her shirt made her “feel equal,” and that wearing the shirt was an expression of her free speech.
When the decision was handed down, American Freedom Law Center Co-Founder and Senior Counsel Robert Muise said, “It is truly a sad day when government officials are permitted to ban the American flag on a public high school campus for any reason. Here, school officials feared that our clients would offend ‘Mexican’ students if they wore their flag shirts to school on Cinco de Mayo, so they ordered the students to either remove their shirts or leave school in direct violation of their First Amendment rights.”
