The kid is right, this incident in California never should have happened. The reason why he is on TV today is because so called educators have failed to educate. By giving legitimacy to anyone who feels offended, rather than intellectually challenging the reasons behind their offense, the Mexican- American students now feel that they are somehow disrespected. They feel they are disrespected because some of their fellow Americans refuse to suppress their First Amendment rights so that the Mexican American students can feel pride for a country their parents fled.
None of this would have happened if the educators had simply pointed out that the Mexican-American students are American too and that taking offense at someone wearing the flag of the country their parents chose to come to is a rather nutty idea. The result of educators fostering this nutty idea:

MorganHill Times reported:
About 200 Hispanic teens are marching in Morgan Hill yelling “We want respect!” and “Si se puede!” in reaction to a controversy ignited when the Live Oak High School principal effectively sent four students home for wearing T-shirts with American flags on them during Cinco de Mayo.
Mexican-American students felt the students were being disrespectful on the only day they celebrate their heritage while students sporting red, white and blue said it violated their First Amendment rights.
Six police cars and a Morgan Hill motorcycle officer have been cruising alongside the large group as it marches.
The group – mostly high school students – walked out of school this morning after the story of four students who were sent home because they wore American flag T-shirts went viral on TV and online. Many wear red, white and green and two large Mexico flags can be seen at the front of the line.
The students say they want people to know they’re proud of their heritage and they believe wearing red, white and blue on Cinco de Mayo is disrespectful.
The celebration of diversity only celebrates our divisions rather than our unity.
