Offensive American Flag drawing drew my ire

By November 16, 2010

EDITOR:

On Saturday, Nov. 13, I went to a Speech and Debate Tournament at Rosemont High School in Sacramento, and I saw a very offensive picture of a burning American Flag. As soon as I walked into the waiting room in the lower E-building, I saw the picture: a torch burning an American Flag, with two kids holding signs; one that says “Freedom of Speech” and the other only says “Expression.”

So does the picture say that it’s a freedom of ours to burn the American Flag? Last I checked, it was illegal. This picture is offensive and wrong. How could a school allow this picture to be displayed, let alone be drawn? Something must be done about this.
