Orange County Changes Dress Code To Fight Scary Confederate Flag Clothing

Unconstitutional and ripe for the Law Of Unintentional Consequences

(WTVD) In a dramatic meeting Monday night, Orange County school board members voted against their attorney’s recommendation and approved an altered revision to the school system’s dress code policy to combat concerns about the Confederate flag on campuses.

After 7 months of hearings and protests amid complaints that some students were wearing symbols of the Confederacy to harass or intimidate classmates, Monday’s vote sought to bring an end to the heated debate.

Most likely, they wore the shirts because they are proud of their Southern heritage, and aren’t thinking about slavery in the least.

A surprising turn came when members moved to vote on the revised policy which read, “Students are not to wear clothing, buttons, patches, jewelry, or any other items with words, phrases, symbols, pictures or signs that are indecent, profane, or racially intimidating that create a reasonable forecast of disruption.”

These free speech champions (sic) wanted to simply ban Confederate flags, but, instead they got the above. The last line was meant to attempt to insulate the school board from lawsuits over 1st Amendment free speech violations, as stated by the school’s attorney.

The Hate-Free Coalition, the leading advocates for a ban, called the vote a victory despite no specific ban on the confederate flag.

“It was a win to me,” said Latarndra Strong, a parent leader of the coalition. “Tonight we’ve shown that when a community stands up and speaks for the people we can get change and be the type of school system we want to be.”

Just wait till a student complains about being intimidated by someone with a Black Lives Matter shirt, or being racially intimidated by African style clothing. Or Che clothing, the Gay rainbow, or other things. How about hoodies? Because this is simply left in the hands of individual school principles. It’s about “racial intimidation and sensitivity.” How subjective is that? Will the complaints of some students be entertained, while others are shut down? I see lots of lawsuits in the Orange County School System’s future.

Instead of teaching everyone to be a Victim, how about teaching them to be adults and ignore it?
