The principal at David Douglas High said the student can’t wear it, because someone could be offended.

A student at David Douglas High School has been forbidden to wear his belt buckle. Now, he’s standing up for his rights.

Taylor Rose said the belt buckle has the letters "CS" on it, which stands for Confederate States. "In no way do I support or like racism or slavery in any way."

The principal said he can’t wear it, because someone could be offended.

Rose told KXL’s Lars Larson that’s a violation of his first amendment rights. David Douglas School Board member Don Garner weighed in, saying "if I could have my way, we would have a more stringent dress code for students and staff both."

Rose hopes to overturn the decision about his belt buckle. He and his parents plan to meet with the principal.
