    Kilt-wearing boy wins apology

    Kilt-wearing boy wins apology


    A Missouri high school student who was barred from a school dance because he was wearing a Scottish kilt has received an apology from school officials after the action sparked outrage among Scottish heritage supporters.

    In a letter dated January 9, Jackson School District Superintendent Ron Anderson apologized to Jackson High School senior Nathan Warmack and said the district would train staffers how to properly apply the school dress code.

    The letter came after more than two months of debate and discussion about the actions of school officials when they asked Warmack, who is of Scottish descent, to change into trousers before entering the dance on November 5.

    News of the event sparked an Internet petition, which was ultimately signed by more than 10,000 supporters and championed by the Clan Gunn Society of North America, which promotes Scottish heritage and traditions.

    "Individual members felt like there had been an injustice to the young man," said society president Rich Gunn.

    Hmm. Kids in my county aren't allowed to wear anything with Confederate symbols depicted, might offend the coloreds. This in a place that was pretty strongly Confederate territory in the War Between the States, many of whom like myself are descended from and related to Confederate veterans :frown: Southern heritage is verboten all across the South, go figure :speechles

    So what happens if you show up at school/workplace in full confederate uniform?
    Hauled away in chains, by 200 swat officers, and giver 35.000 years of prison for hatespeech?

    Try it, and use something like this:
    "well, its very sad you cannot be more open minded and loving towards my culture.. it must be terrible to be consumed by bigotry like that, but you will just have to show a bit more tolerance, since i have the right to freely express myself!"

    Naah, just suspended if you're a school kid. My niece was suspended for wearing a t-shirt with the Confederate battleflag on it. Supposedly causes "racial incitement". eyes: The negroes flatter themselves far too much in thinking that symbol of freedom and valor has aught to do with them one way or the other. :
