I’d be curious to know if any of the hispanic students told the administration they were upset by kids wearing US flags. My bet is not. The administration just wanted to bend over backwards to ensure no one was insulted. Typical school administrator hyperventilation.


To many Mexican-American students at Live Oak, this was a big deal. They say they were offended by the five boys and others for wearing American colors on a Mexican holiday.

“I think they should apologize cause it is a Mexican Heritage Day,” Annicia Nunez, a Live Oak High student, said. “We don’t deserve to be get disrespected like that. We wouldn’t do that on Fourth of July.”

As for an apology, the boys and their families say, ‘fat chance.’
