The Confederacy Under Attack-- Part 52

Google Alerts from September 17, 2015.

I do not include stories I've already headlined if they essentially cover the same thing unless there are changes.  A lot of headlines lately have been dealing with the 20+ students suspended from the Christiansburg High School in Virginia for wearing Confederate clothing.  They do this because they don't want to offend anyone.  I wonder if they know that the word Christian offends some groups.  Next they should be considering changing the name of their town and high school to some less offensive term.

What really hurts with this story is that the school is located in Virginia.  You'd think they would know a little more about their heritage.
