    Styelids is all about suppressing anything that shows a white person is proud of his heritage. Let's take away "black pride" from the schools and see what he does. He'll jump up and down and cry racism. Unfortunately, racism only works one way. A teacher tells the local gang banger to pull his britches up or that he can't wear his "Malcolm X: By any means necessary" T - Shirts(which is what they wore when I was in school), and that's racist and suppressing his expression of pride. A white kid wants to wear a Dixie Outfitter shirt to school, people applaud the school for not allowing racism in the school. You don't see anything wrong with that? All I want is equal rights to be equal rights and not preferential treatment.

    My niece attends a private school that has always allowed the students to wear Dixie Outfitter shirts. Well, this year they have one black student in the school. Dixie Outfitter shirts are no longer allowed. That is bullshit. All that does is put more attention on the one black kid who, as far as I know, has said nothing about the shirts. I told my niece it's not his fault, that people just tiptoe around anything that could be misconstrued as racist. She know's the shirts aren't racist, her's are frickin fast pitch softball shirts (she's 13 and pitching for high school varsity this year). So, I went and bought her two of these to wear this year.

    School Protest Shirts
    Dixie Outfitters supports all students who wish to show their pride in their Southern Heritage by wearing shirts to school that feature the Confederate Battle Flag.

    We believe that banning of the Confederate Battle Flag by public schools is a violation of students right to freedom of speech as guaranteed by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. Further, these unconstitutional bans discriminate against persons of Southern heritage and are an insult to those who have Confederate ancestors. Such discrimination is a violation of the Civil Rights act of 1964.

    These bans perpetuate ignorance and misunderstanding about the true history of the Confederacy and the Confederate Battle Flag. It is the mandate of public schools to educate its students in true history. The Confederate Battle flag is a historical flag of the Southern soldier who fought for the principles espoused by the founding fathers of the United States. Historical facts, not politically correct positions, should be taught by our schools.

    It is not the mandate of our public schools to deny its students of the fundamental freedoms enjoyed by American citizens. It is not the mandate of our schools to deny Southern students symbols of their heritage while allowing other ethnicities their symbols of heritage. Public school students who are denied their freedom to express themselves should protest this injustice.

    Dixie Outfitters new series of shirts called " Public School Protest Shirts" are designed to help students who feel abused and discriminated against because of their Southern heritage. These shirts do not contain the Confederate Battle Flag, but they do effectively communicate your feelings regarding the trampling of your rights.

    We encourage you to make your feelings known to your school through these shirts. We offer them at a special price of $5.00 each.

    Where are the mock trials? Where is the student legislation, the god damed self reliance of student council who were supposed to be teaching these kids hard earned life lessons at their age and grade. There shouldn't be oppression 'unconformity laws'! There should be litigation at the student level.
    The last thing that we need is to teach students to ligitate their lives. Where are the self-correcting forces of school thuggery? Where are the vicious gangs of minority youth? When I was in high school, standards of conduct were enforced by school bullies. Anything that made you stand out would get your ass kicked, especially anything that was calculated to offend. What a nation of whiners we have become when we cannot solve a problem this simple with a beat down.

    Expressing your ethnic pride is okay so long as your ethnicity isn't white. If a Latino kid wore a Mexican flag belt buckle, the school would be bending over backwards to accomodate him. All of this argues for a return to school uniforms with no individual accomodations. The purpose of a school is to educate in fundamental skills, not to promote cultural Balkanization.

    It's not like the schools in the north are any better. Between teachers' unions that have their hands in everything but the education of students, administrators that are too cowed to promote common sense and school curricula that are designed to perpetuate PC ignorance in the name of diversity, environmentalism and promotion of self-esteem, we have completely abandoned the function of public schools, which was to provide a unified curriculum that would teach critical skills in the context of a uniquely American culture. The poverty of reading, writing and math skills is matched by a complete ignorance of civics, economics and history.

    Or some gangbanger wearing an Africa shirt. By the way, the south's drop out rate is inflatedbecause of the percentage of the population that happen to be black.

    No, I just like people to be able to express their thoughts in basic English, and it pains me when people demonstrate that my expectations are too high. One example is when they use "your" when they should use "you're".

    Yeah because literacy is so high in the inner city!

    Most people just post what they're thinking as quickly as they can. I post the same as I talk, admittedly not proper English. When you actually hear the word you're or your, you don't hear the apostraphe, so it tends to get left out. If you can't figue out what he means, then you need a refresher in reading comprehension.

    I post the same way that I talk, as well. Some people are pretty lax either way.
