American School Bans American Flag

Recommended Posts


From the story:

In the wake of last week's immigration-reform protests, one school district is taking drastic measures, banning all symbols of patriotism, both U.S. and Mexican.

It seems that the schools have become lightning rods for the simmering tensions between immigrants and Americans. The Americans have chosen which way they want to go with immigration. Likewise with multiculturalism.

I suspect that identity is only part of the reason some Americans are upset. It would also be upsetting to a family that had two work two or three jobs only to get to the point where a single wage earner was fifty years ago.

The American administration has done a good job of increasing productivity, creating a better business environment, and cheaper goods for consumers. When will they start to worry about the lack of real wage growth ?

Maybe once foreign labour has eaten away at scientific, and information technology jobs, or the medical profession the middle class will show some concern.
