Can you imagine a high school in the U.S.A. prohibiting its students from a Patriot's Day dress theme at a football game of red, white and blue?
Could this possibly be true?
FoxNews reports that Eastlake High School in Sammamish, Washington nixed the planned display. From the article, "A student told the (radio) show that he was informed that the 'red, white and blue was going to be seen as racially insensitive and may affect people in a way that we will not understand and for that reason that we were to change our theme.'"
I've heard of dumb things coming out of the State of Washington, but this takes the cake. So, some people (students, "babies" as a Richland 2 trustee-elect calls them here) might be offended. Well, too bad!!!

FoxNews had the name of the associate principal who called off the display in the name of the school and who apparently blindsided the Principal. How kind of FoxNews not to name that staffer.
