I would blame 'ignorance' more than being scared.

If anyone did research they will see that Charlotte is one of the top non-discriminating cities in the United States.

An example of this is that you can open a business in Charlotte, and it is more likely to succeed than any other city/state.

In regards to Newton Grove, I found this on Drudgereport, 9/12/07! Heard on the radio here in mid-Missouri! This is about Hobbton High School where 14% of the student population is immigrants (legal????). Goes to the question of common sense and patriotism!
"
SAMPSON COUNTY, N.C. – On the sixth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, students at one high school were not allowed to wear clothes with an American flag.

[url="http://www.nbc17.com/midatlantic/ncn/news.apx.-content-articles-NCN-2007-09-11-0027.html#r"]

Under a new school rule, students at Hobbton High School are not allowed to wear items with flags, from any country, including the United States.

The new rule stems from a controversy over students wearing shirts bearing flags of other countries.

Gayle Langston said her daughter, Jessica, was told to remove her stars and stripes t-shirt.

“Today she wanted to wear her shirt, and I had to tell her no,” said Langston. “She didn't like it at all because I knew it would get her in trouble. Of all days, 9/11, she could not wear her American Flag shirt.”

The superintendent of schools in Sampson County calls the situation unfortunate, but says educators didn’t want to be forced to pick and choose which flags should be permissible."

That is so sad. What has this country come to that you can't even support "this country"? Although the flag is not really meant to be worn on clothing, but that is beside the point.
