Boy, if this story doesn't make your head feel like it's going to explode, nothing will. As reported at Saberpoint:
Several high school seniors wore white t shirts to their class's group picture last Wednesday and were suspended for doing so. The reason: the school administrators suspect that white t shirts are a sign of "white supremacists." This was a surprise to student David Mine, who is Asian. He isn't sure how he could be a "white supremacist" because he's not white.There's more at the link.
That doesn't seem to matter to the Soquel school administrators, who apparently can read students' minds and intentions. High school senior Mike Donnelly explained the situation:"All the girls wore pink, all the sports guys wore tank tops," says Soquel High Senior Mikey Donnelly. "We were all going to wear white so that was the plan. Just wear white t-shirts to identify ourselves and look back and say that was our group of friends right there."The school principal, Ken Lawrence-Emanuel explained the school's position:
Soquel High Senior Mikey Donnelly wore a white t-shirt for his senior class photo Tuesday. About 10 of his friends did the same. That decision may seem harmless. But Soquel High suspended Donnelly for three days because of it.
Donnelly said the school told him people were offended and intimidated by his group, claiming they're a white supremacist gang."Safety is always first at Soquel High," says Lawrence-Emanuel. "We want to make sure we do everything we can to keep people from feeling and being safe on campus."
But, the students don't agree and are ready to fight it.
"It's a pretty bad feeling to be labeled something you're not," says Donnelly.
Donnelly said nobody's ever accused him of being a white supremacist before and plans on appealing the schools decision. He'll even take it to court if he needs to.

Insane! Wake up, America. Insanity like this is part and parcel to government-run education. Just because this story heralds from kooky-California, doesn't mean that PC moonbattery like this won't arrive in your neck of the woods eventually.
It doesn't start or end with PC madness, though. Because of "progressive" control, public education in America now lags most Westernized nations, leaving children ill equipped in a rapidly changing world. Heck, here in the People's Republic of California, a significant number of students graduate high school without even being competent or literate in English!
We need to disband the Leviathan's grip on public education, bar the NEA from its insidious, corrupting influence and institute free market reforms, immediately!
