Court: School was within its rights to ban U.S. flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo
(CNN) -- A California school that stopped students from wearing American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo didn't violate their constitutional rights, an appeals court ruled Thursday.

The school's approach, according to the appeals court, kept students safe in a climate of racial tension.

"The controversy and tension remained," a panel of judges from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said in their opinion, "but the school's actions presciently avoided an altercation."

School officials were worried about violence and disruption of school activities "and their response was tailored to the circumstance," the opinion said.

The case dates back to May 5, 2010, when the principal of Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, California, asked a group of students wearing American flag T-shirts to turn their shirts inside out or take them off.

Re: Court: School was within its rights to ban U.S. flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo
another source...

A federal court ruled Thursday that a northern California high school did not violate the constitutional rights of its students when school officials made them turn their American flag T-shirts inside out on Cinco de Mayo or be sent home due to fears of racial violence.

The three-judge panel unanimously decided the officials’ need to protect the safety of their students outweighed the students’ freedom of expression rights.

Administrators at Live Oak High School, in the San Jose suburb of Morgan Hill, feared the American-flag shirts would enflame Latino students celebrating the Mexican holiday, and ordered the students to either turn the shirts inside out or go home for the day.

The answer to this obviously is to wear a flag shirt printed on both the inside and the outside, flag pants, flag underwear, flag shoes, flag backpack, and a flag hat.

Why is Cinco de Mayo celebrated more in the U.S. than in México?

It seems to be more a question of marketing than anything else. With the large population of Mexican descent living in the U.S. it makes sense to celebrate Mexican culture, just as Saint Patrick's Day is a day to celebrate Irish culture, and also, for many, an excuse to party hard.

Re: Court: School was within its rights to ban U.S. flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo
That's right. Flags are gang colors. You had better believe it.

We have to let others fly their colors on Cinco de Mayo, for the sake of tolerance, but just to be sure we're going to ban the local gang from showing their colors because we actually believe our attempts to force tolerance may lead to violence.

But it's still a really really good idea and think it will work despite the obvious tension that this favoritism engenders.

Shut up and put that flag away. You can't be who you are today. Instead, we will celebrate MULTICULTURALISM.

You really should hate yourself more, whitey. In the name of tolerance.
