537 elected officials most likely cannot fathom what's best for a nation with ~320m people...they're job is just to make you think they care.When I see sh!t like this, I always think what the f+ck are the politicians and leaders thinking? They generally try to tell us what to think and create laws to protect us from ourselves. What is the benefit of this kind of rule? Who gets offended by a symbol of the people who were here first? Bunch of bleeding heart dipsh!ts who think they know what's best for us, when really they don't know sh!t. I say good on you Tit man - wear your feather, and I hope you get to play with some tits at graduation.
Well then they'll have to file about 2400 countersuits against the IRS like scientology did when they started claiming no taxes lolI doubt any of the leaders are honestly worried about this Native American wearing something that represents his roots. By all means Native Americans, more than anybody else in this country, should be able to express themselves. But what theyre really worried about are the OTHER students seeing this and then running with it.
"Well Tit Man can wear his eagle feather so why can't I wear my gang colors?!"
"Well Tit Man can wear his feather thing so why can't I paint my juggalo face and bring a Faygo with me?! ICP is my religion!"
I agree with you roughly 95%...maybe if I wasn't asked to remove a religious necklace it'd be 100 and not 95%.Kids in schools today are far too relaxed and allowed to run free. Sure it's good to be able to express individuality and learn to be creative but a school is not a place for that. Schools are for learning to be a high functioning member of society and not a place to explore or experiment. What happened to all the after school activities? And not necessarily school related either. You go to class, learn your sh!t, get out of school and be yourself.
I see too many people think of school facilities and staff as a playground and nannies that are supposed to cave in to student's and parent's demands. I remember reading a story a little ago about some girl who got reprimanded for wearing a dress that showed her back and the tattoo on it. She wrote a long and admittedly boring and irrelevant letter to her principal citing all her rights as an individual and how nobody should be able to judge her based on her attire, completely ignoring that she violated the dress code. That ticked me off in the same way this does.
Graduation is a simple ceremony that has no real impact on the outcome of anybody's life. The school district laid out a neutral attire, and the kid raises fuss over a feather. Sure it's a symbol of great accomplishment in his culture but forcing a school to play favorites is absurd.
