It seems that a young man bought a jacket, had a minia- ture.Confederate flag sewed ton the sleeve, and wore the'outfit to school. He encountered an immediate uproar when black militants objected, claiming that the sight of the flag was dis- tressing to black scholars. Despite the marked overload of cases facing the court, a federal judge pushed aside the mammoth backlog of litigation to issue a hurried ruling on l,his matter, in wh,ich alleged "racism" was involved. Predicta- bly, he ,ruled that the Confed- erate emblem could not be worn to school. This, despite the fact that other courts have ruled that students may wear the Red flag, SNCC arm bands, black militant emblems. and Chicano symbols. In other words, according to our federal courts, a student may wear any sort of emblem ,or flag which is offensive to many students and citizdns -- except the Confederate flag. Moo, Stalin, He, Viet tong and Black Muslim symbols are well and good, our courts seem to infer, but never the Confederate flag, Robert E. Lee, or een "'Dixie."
