There is a more to this story, as usual.
North high school is a racially diverse school with a lot of refugee children in their student population.
West Valley High is a school that has been noted for "deep racial disparities" among their student body, with more white students in AP classes, more white students participating in extracurricular and teams, and less white students labeled as special needs and less white students being referred for discipline.
At the game, North High school students heard *some* of the west valley high school students shouting racial slurs and chanting "Deport Them" but not a majority of the west valley students.
Because of the atmosphere created by the current administration; because of the multitude of slurs and insults said by 45, documented by the press, and apparently excused by those who voted for him; because of his first attempt to ban entry to the US from majority Muslim countries which also includes the desperate refugees who fled war, violence and starvation, that was a poorly disguised Muslim ban (as he promised in his campaign speeches) .... the wearing of red white and blue from a school with a track record of unacceptable racial disparities combined with racial slurs and chants from some of those "patriotic" students, their attire was seen as an extension of the bigotry espoused by the current administration and NOT a reflection of American values.
West valley was not asked to apologize, north high school did not make an official complaint. If you're upset that the wearing of red, white, and blue has become synonymous to 45's thinly veiled racist and bigoted policies...blame all the idiots who voted him into office, for it is 45 who disgraces the meaning of the American colors, not the sensitivity of others.
Anytime I see a red hat I assume the wearer to be a deplorable...or a self indulgent individual who is more concerned with their wallet, yet sadly mistake that this administration will benefit said wallet, than with the direction and state of this country and by extension this planet. .... Except for @EleGirl
, I haven't figured out how to classify and rationalize her voting for Trump because she is neither a deplorable, nor self indulgent, nor oblivious to the state of the country and planet. Elegirl is an enigma.
