Students Called Racist for Wearing Red, White and Blue – Apologize For Offending Refugees

Des Moines, Iowa – Students from one Iowan high school apologized to another Iowan high school when people (refugees) found their red, white and blue attire offensive.

Yes, you read that correctly. It is now racist to wear the colors of the American flag.

Daily Caller reports:

Supporters of the Des Moines North High School basketball team, many of whose players are from refugee families, were offended when fans of Valley High School’s basketball team wore red, white and blue last week, The College Fix reports.

“This is an example of BLATANT racism,” said Ty Leggett, a Valley High School alum, on the Valley High School – WDMCS Facebook page. “ALL participating should have been pulled and banned from ALL VHS extracurricular events for the remainder of the year! As a parent, I’d be mortified that my son or daughter thought this way, acted in this fashion and refrained from taking a stand against this 21st century inexcusable behavior!”

Erin Ness Carter, a mother living in the Iowan district, remarked that “for the supporters of one team from a primarily white part of town to paint themselves as the ‘team of the USA’ it strongly implies that the other team, the less white team, is less American.”

Some individuals defended the Valley High students.

“Now we can’t wear USA stuff without making someone upset?” asked Melissa Fraas-Bader, another Valley High alum. “Oh please….”

    So we are not allowed to be American anymore?? KMA…. And they apologized for it? Bunch of wimps. If American are not allowed to wear their own colors, then all other nationalities living in the US should not be allowed theirs. What is good for one, is good for all.

    It is the flag of this Country! If it offends you…..too fucking bad….just Leave! Why is it that you see more Mexican flags at a immigration march and it never seems to offend liberal Snowflakes? USA, love it or GTFOH.
