HS Student Wears BLM Shirt On Picture Day – Receives Shocking Response [VIDEO]

An African American student at an Arizona high school is crying to the media after being told she wasn’t allowed to wear her “Black Lives Matter” T-Shirt in school — especially on picture day.

As The Blaze reports[1]:

Mariah Havard walked into Buckeye (Arizona) High School Tuesday morning ready for picture day.

But instead the 10th grader got the dreaded call to the office where the administration said her T-shirt wasn’t appropriate.

“I wasn’t able to wear the shirt anymore because somebody made a complaint,” Havard told KPNX-TV. “I was a little bit confused as to why I wouldn’t be able to wear something so meaningful to me.”

A few days later an Hispanic student tried the same trick and was also told she can’t wear a T-Shirt that might lead to “disruptions” during the school day.

“I felt like I was being punished for who I am,” the girl told the media.

Yeah… where were these girls who are all worried about free speech and “being who they are” when other students were being told[2] they aren’t allowed to wear T-Shirts with the American flag[3] on them or a drawing of a gun[4] on them?

Bet they were totally silent then, eh?

But what do you think? Were these girls’ “rights” violated?
