A Michigan school district is under fire for sending out the following informational packet about their dress code:
Dear Michigan parents,

Um… What?! I dunno about you, but I’m putting adorable Old Navy American flag t-shirts on my kids whether you like it or not! FOREVER! (You know, once I have them…)
I’ve heard a few stories like this, where people think that it’s “racist” to be proud of the American Flag in areas where there are a lot of foreign students. GUESS WHAT PEOPLE, THIS IS AMERICA. WE WAVE OLD GLORY. THE END.
I grew up in Mexico. We waved the Mexican flag there, because it’s Mexico. No one had a problem with it.
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, even if you’re not originally FROM America, you should be glad you are now! Love and respect this country, or choose to leave! It’s your call! My mother didn’t move to this country until her 40’s, and she proudly flies our flag in her home because she PROUD to be a citizen of this beautiful country. Again, if you don’t feel the same way, no one is keeping you here.
The school is now saying this:

I want to believe this, but honestly…I think they may be covering their asses after word of this got out and people got angry. This isn’t the first, and it won’t be the last case of schools banning our flag.
