In some places, uniforms are considered racist...go figure. You can't win for losing.

The more important point is what symbol can we use that represents the South but doesn't also represent the negativity/hatred/racism?
- -Any and every symbol can be hijacked for hatred.

The so called Confederate flag in question was the highly respected Robert E Lee battle flag, not the official Confederate flag.

And keep in mind those using Lees flag are usually flying the American flag next to it.

The Nazi swastica is a corruption of a peaceful Asian Indian symbol.

How many times has the American Constitution been hijacked?

Religion?

Government?

Most especially science!

School was wrong for enforcing its own rules?

How does that work?

Also, the other hundreds of kids in that high school dont seem to have a problem getting dressed properly. Dont need to change everything for the few who want to cause trouble.

Things will represent what ppl want them to represent

If you think the Confederate flag is racist that's your feelings

That might not be what the flag means to them

Flags are symbols that evoke strong emotions in people. I think the concern I would have in a school is the personal public safety of the student wearing this and the potential for situations to escalate because of it.

Wonder if the kid would do this if he was in Chicago, LA, or NY.

Freedom of Speech is an important right, but it can have bad consequences.

The school is trying to mitigate risk.
