    A Student Was Denied His Diploma For Wearing The Mexican Flag At Graduation

    A Student Was Denied His Diploma For Wearing The Mexican Flag At Graduation


















    Ever Lopez, 18, wore the Mexican flag over his graduation robe at his high school graduation ceremony. The school withheld his diploma, claiming he violated the dress code.





    ASHEBORO, N.C. (AP) — "A North Carolina high school senior was denied his diploma because he draped a Mexican flag over his gown in violation of a graduation dress code, school officials said.
    A 68-second video of the graduation at Asheboro High School on Thursday shows the student wearing the flag over his gown, on his back and shoulders, as he proceeds toward the stage, WGHP reported. The video shows the student being handed a diploma holder and moving on to receive his diploma. It then shows him appearing to talk to people in the line for a few seconds before he returns to his seat without his diploma.


    Asheboro school officials defended the decision to withhold the student's diploma, saying that wearing a flag of any kind is a violation of the dress code."
    "The heart of the issue is the fact that the student did not follow the established dress code for the event and detracted from the importance and the solemnity of the ceremony," officials said in one of two statements. "Our dress code is in place to ensure the dignity of the event is upheld and is fair to all students."

    The school did the right thing, a dress code is a dress code. If all students decided for themselves which rules they don't like and won't follow, there would be anarchy in the schools.

    Indeed., He is probably here illegally.

    From the link:

    "In a separate statement, officials said they "continue working to resolve this issue with the student and his family so that he will receive his diploma from Asheboro High School."


    He may receive his diploma but not at the graduation ceremony.




    Note the editorial comment from the far left NPR:
    "The school withheld his diploma, claiming he violated the dress code."

    "Claiming." He violated the dress code. Period.

    This is what's coming. I live down south and a couple of years ago saw a new Camaro with a custom paint job. It was a slogan down the side of the vehicle:

    LOS ESTADOS UNIDOS MEXICANOS.
    Call me old fashioned but I grew up in an America where the people who came voluntarily, wanted to be AMERICAN. This current crowd have loyalties to where they came FROM, not to America. The country is being Balkanized intentionally.
    TO BLOODY WARS AND DREAD DISEASES...

    THE TIME IS NOW​ - WHO WILL STAND?

    Ask the ones defending this guy if they would be cool with someone wearing a Confederate flag.

    A HS kid a "rat?"

    If the graduation ceremony is over - mail him his diploma, and forget about it.

    Apparently he earned it.

    What do you think would have happened if he was to pull a BLM or ANTIFA tee short on over his graduation robe?

    One doesn't even have to guess - the school would have given it to him without hesitation.

    There is another story out of Louisiana about a student who was initially denied entrance to his graduation ceremony for wearing the wrong shoes. The dress code specifically stated "NO ATHLETIC SHOES". So, naturally he wore a pair of black basketball sneakers. A big hoopla was made over this "minor infraction". However, rules are rules as has been pointed out and as Rudy Giuliani stated in New York City in the 80's minor infractions that are allowed to slide give way to major disregard for any rules or standards of conduct.

    His parents knew the rules but allowed him to wear improper shoes anyway.
