Wearing the colors of the American flag these days could make others think you’re just being a racist. The idea seems absurd, but some students in one high school in Iowa found out just that.
A report from College Fix said that supporters of the Valley High School’s basketball team got the ire of the supporters of the opposing Des Moines North High School basketball team for wearing the red, blue and white.
Many of the players in the Des Moines North High School squad hail from refugee families.
This led to a heated exchange on social media as some individuals were angered by Valley High School’s actions. One Iowa mother said the students made it appear like the white part of the community is the rightful American team, implying that the other, less white part of the community as the lesser American team.
The bizarre incident led students of Valley High to make an apology.
The Gateway Pundit reports:
Why on earth did the students apologize? The reason why these leftists and refugees have become so brazen is because they know they can bully people into submission. If you’re so offended by the colors of the American flag, then GET OUT. The American flag represents all races for Americans. We should never let immigrants come here if they don’t respect the American flag and what it stands for.
Some individuals defended the Valley High students. One Valley High alum asked: Can’t people wear the USA colors anymore without offending other people?
