Arizona High School Decrees Wearing American Colors Is Racist

Also green, flags, and Trump related. Such is the state of America these days

(Breitbart[1]) A high school in Arizona has banned pro-Donald Trump clothing at a Friday football game because it would be “racist” or “offensive.”

Corona del Sol High School in Tempe, Arizona – with a student body known as “The Tribe” – is set to face off against Marcos de Niza High School Friday in an anticipated rivalry game. The game was supposed to have a “USA” theme. But that theme was considered problematic and thrown out.

“The Tribe tweeted out that the theme for the game would be “USA,” and students should wear red, white and blue. Administration recognized that this theme had negative connotations,” according to a statement[2] Thursday by the Editorial Board of the Corona student newspaper.

The theme was changed to “Orange Out”, and anyone dressed inappropriately would not be admitted to the game. When the student newspaper was asked what is inappropriate, they responded

@DylanJWater[3] Anything perceived to be offensive/racist: green, USA, flags, Trump, etc. It’s not the clothing, but the intent behind it.

And then, apparently, deleted the tweet when it hit the news.
