Students at Eastlake High were planning a patriotic-themed football game only to witness the school cave over the perception it was “racially insensitive,” Fox News reported.
Steve McConkey of 4 WINDS Christian Athletics, says it is much more likely the community’s patriots were offended by the decision.
"It's almost like they have a phobia for being patriotic,” he says. “And these people that fear patriotism, believing that that sends a racist message, they do not have a clue what they really believe."
High school principal Chris Bede has said students have a right to wear anything to school as long as it does not violate the school's dress code, according to Fox.
