School Apologizes for Students Wearing Red, White, and Blue

Valley High School had a heated matchup with Des Moines North High School, but the main controversy was due to how the VHS fans dressed. Instead of wearing their school colors -- orange and black -- they wore patriotic colors. In fact, the students had a patriotic theme night, which they'd done many times in the past. According to IJR, "Des Moines North High School is known for its diverse student population, and critics claimed the red, white, and blue theme was a direct attack on its students who are refugees or have refugee families."

One mom complained about the red, white, and blue on Facebook:

“For the supporters of one team from a primarily white part of town to paint themselves as the 'team of the USA' strongly implies that the other team, the less white team, is less American.”

When liberals describe everything as "racist," then real racism gets plenty of opportunity to run rampant.
