Good for the kid. Were I his parents I’d not only have made sure he was able to speak, but that sanctions were taken against the people who tossed him out of school for words on a T-shirt.
His point about the pride flags and other propaganda is very telling. Why are some words ok, and others aren’t? Why is one “class” protected and another is not?
If I had children in that school, I would DEMAND that the school board make a statement explaining the actions that were taken that day and either repudiate those actions (and describe the appropriate punishment for the teachers/”adults” that pressured this kid, or define what, exactly, is acceptable and why. Make ’em stand on their words and actions.
My congratulations to this young man and his parents.
