12-year-old Jaiden from Colorado was removed from class for sporting a Gadsden Flag patch on his backpack. The Vanguard School, a charter school, had its staff remove Jaiden after he refused to remove th patch. They claimed the patch symbolizes slavery and racism.
I mention how they school is incorrect, as the flag stands for the necessity of unity the 13 colonies needed if they were to overthrow British rule. I also mention how the staff is wrong constitutionally, as Tinker v. Des Monies allows students to practice the First Amendment on school grounds so long as it is not disruptive to the school day.
