Another Heritage Attack: The Flag on Tee Shirts

From the Sept. 8th KSPR ABC 33 "Branson students sent home over Confederate memorial shirts" by Mary Moloway and Brandon Foster.

Preston Baughman was always wearing his Confederate flag, but died in a crash after graduating high school. His family made tee shirts with crosses and the flag to honor his memory.   His brother Austin Baughman wore one to school and got kicked out as the school forbids anything that can be perceived as offensive or distracting.

The student has to change it or be sent home or even suspended.

Friday, several girls were also made to change tee shirts for wearing it.

This is not a flag of hate and should be allowed to be worn at school.
