Native Americans would like to wear their traditional garb. It's not a hypothetical question. Would you call them "unpatriotic" if they came to school in such attire?

the school should have let them keep their shirts on and get their a$$es kicked. But then someone would have faulted the school for not making them change their shirts.

I would assume they are proud of their heritage. They should be free to wear whatever they like just as the Mexicans are and the students wearing the American flag symbolic garb. As long as it doesn't violate any universal school dress code applied equally to all students.

Have them call and check with the specific school regarding the dress code. Have fun!

You're evading the question. I'm not asking you whether you think they are proud of their heritage. We already know that they are. I'm asking you whether you think they should be considered American patriots for wearing their traditional garb.

You said this in an earlier post: "The attire the students were clad in was standard patriotic wear seen at schools across the country on any given day."

You were referring to the students at Morgan Hill who were wearing shirts with the American flag as wearing "standard patriotic wear". So, are you implying that a native American student who goes to school in traditional regalia is not wearing "standard patriotic wear"?

Well, no its not standard U.S. Patriotic garb; i.e. U.S. flag colors. But, they are free to wear and be proud of their Native American Heritage. Happy???

Hmmm.....who says what "standard US patriotic garb" is? Can you show us where it says that "standard patriotic garb" is equivalent to US flag colors and nothing else?

What if the Native Americans decided to celebrate the Lakota and Cheyenne victory over George Custer during the Battle of Little Bighorn? What if they came to school in war regalia to commemorate the victory? Would you be offended by it that you would be compelled to wear "standard patriotic US garb" (whatever that means) to counter such "anti-American" displays?

Just a reminder.
It sounds like, given your silly hypothetical scenario regarding american indian school children, you need one.

Nope. They are free to wear what they like; long as its not violating the school's universal dress code, that applies to all, equally. That, my dear, is the point. Doesn't matter who is "offended" by it, loves it or hates it. Free country!
