Let's not miss the point here. The student wanted to cause a disruption in school and did. Racism aside this is a question of discipline and order. When this student deosn't get the negative attention they want from their Klannery they'll start setting fires or pissing in the class room.
I worked wit kids for years in non-profits and know exactly what kind of kid this is. Bad with parents who won't "take him to the woodshed" where he belongs. All this talk about double standards is just a distraction from the fact this hellion needs to be taught how to act civilized before he becomes an adult and ends up in jail.

You all need to understand the kkk before saying that the shirt is offensive.It is a christian organization who supports the pride and advancement of our white race.There are SOME idiots who give the kkk a bad name but most of the members of the kkk these days do not promote violence and are good upstanding CITIZENS. You are more than welcome to research it by going to thier website.(if you're not a total idiot,you'll figure out how to get there)There is nothing wrong with that child showing pride for his race in my opinion.What else do the whites really have???The mexicans can fly thier flag whether it be an air freshener dangling from thier car mirror or on a T-shirt and this is ok.The blacks can wear thier malcom x T-shirt and they get a pat on the back.Why is racism only considered to go one way? Is it because the whites are supposed to "know better"???I don't understand.

#1 Make sure a person is guilty before you affect his reputation, his freedom or his pocketbook.#2 Make sure that during your investigation you always assure yourself that you are the fairest juior a suspect will ever have. And #3 Remember - you do not make facts; you discover and report them.

Is it legal for Judge Tracy Carroll to be married to Lt Billy Flurry who works for the Aiken County Sheriff's Office? LT Flurry has a number of officers who present there case in her courtroom for warrants, arrests, hearings, trials, etc. It's hard to believe that she is able to conduct impartial and independent hearings given that she's sleeping with law enforcement. This just doesn't seem right from an ethical point of view???

Is this the same kid who burned the Puerto Rican flag? Wouldn't be surprised if he were. Racism is evil, go as any holocaust survivor.

BTW: ":Im all for letting people where whatever sort of "KKK" or "n word" shirt they want...regardless of color."

You mean you are all for letting people WEAR! Get it right...and there's no pros in wearing these insignias, same happened to Price Harry in the UK when he wore a svástica to a Halloween party...shameful!
