As the promotion of cultural genocide continues in government schools throughout the South, some families seem to have found a new way to fight back–lawsuits against the government school entities that seem to be promoting and upholding the attempts to destroy Southern culture for the next generation. A couple cases I recently read about come to mind.

Tom DeFoe, a senior at Anderson County Career and Technical School in Tennessee has been suspended twice already this year for wearing clothing with Confederate symbols on it. In October, one day, he wore a T-shirt to school that had a Confederate flag on it along with the caption "If you have a problem with this flag you need a history lesson." Although I probably would not have worn such a shirt to school, I cannot disagree with the sentiment expressed on it. Those who do, indeed, hate Confederate symbols because they are supposedly racist really do need a history lesson. You have to wonder where they got the information, so-called, that everything Confederate is inherently racist.

Anyway, Tom is suing the local school board, claiming they have violated his constitutional rights. His lawyer, Val Irion, has noted that the school’s dress code is "unduly vague" and allows the school officials to enforce their guidelines in an arbitrary manner, basically when and how they choose. I wonder if, in the same school, Malcolm X T-shirts would also be considered racist. Somehow I think not. And, the school dress code doesn’t specifically ban the Confederate flag. So these public educrats are basically deciding on their own what they like and don’t like, and heaven help you should you decide to wear something they don’t like! I realize you need some restrictions on certain types of dress for the sake of decency, but this thing with Confederate symbols has progressed from decency to cultural genocide.

The other case is in Farmington, Missouri, where a high school student is now suing his school district because he was suspended for wearing a cap and T-shirt with a Confederate flag on them. Yet another case of the race card being played. Bryce Archambo had a teacher seize his cap with a Confederate flag on it back in September. When his father went to complain he was told his son could not wear anything with a Confedertate symbol on it "due to the alleged inherent racism that such insignia sends." Note the word "alleged" here, which signifies that such racism has only been alluded to or alleged, not really proven. But, then, even the hint of an allegation is enough for the school district.

Bryce’s lawsuit notes that the school district’s policy violates the state law which stops prohibitions against emblems or clothing that are not disruptive. And in this case there has been no mention of any disruption at the school because of what Bryce wore. The only disruption involved was when the school authorties sought to prohibit him from wearing anything with a Confederate symbol on it. There were no race riots on account of his Confederate clothing, but maybe that’s because neither Je$$e Jackson or Al Sharpton were in the area. Im sure they could have been prevailed upon to throw a little kerosene on the fire! No one except the school authorities seems to have said anything about Bryce’s Confederate clothing. Had there been some sort of incident the school authorities might have used that as an excuse, but there was nothing. Which leads you to believe that someone at Bryce’s school also doesn’t like Confederate symbols.

This whole concept of Confederate symbols being "inherently racist" is something that really needs to be looked into. Government school officials seem so ready, almost poised at the starting gate, to ban anything even remotely Confederate, while all other kinds of clothing and symbols seem to just get a pass.

It almost seems as if there has been a monstrous brainwashing job done on Southern folks in the government school system so they have been taught to be ashamed of and to hate their own heritage and history. You don’t think that’s something that could have been done on purpose do you. After all, that would be cultural genocide–and they wouldn’t do that to us–would they???
