It’s happened again. This time a school in California has asked for 13-year-old Cody Alicea to remove the American flag on the back of his bike because they fear the American flag aggravates the racial tensions escalating at the middle school where he attends. Cody says he’s had the flag on the back of his bike for 2 months now and does this to be patriotic and to honor veterans, like his own grandfather, Robert Alicea.
“In this country we’re supposed to be free,” said Cody. “And I should be able to wave my flag wherever I want to. And they’re telling me I can’t.”
Stand tall Cody.
So, Denair Middle School…what the heck is your problem? How about if you concern yourself with your purpose which is teaching kids, preparing them to be competitive in a free market society? And those racial tensions? Remove the agitators from the school and leave patriots alone.
If you’d like to call Denair Middle School with your concerns, the phone number for the school is (209) 632-2510. Please be direct but polite even though they may not be. Videos below.
