The confederate flag

Students at Lapel High School in central Indiana, were recently told they are not allowed to wear the confederate flag. This was because of a recent “disruption” among the students, according to the school’s principal, Chad Kemerly. A group of students wore their confederate flag clothing two days in a row. These actions were put to an end as well as another group’s plans, which were to wear shirts supporting the Black Lives Matter movement, according to the Indianapolis Star.

Still, no students have been disciplined since the incident, according to the New York Daily News. Students claimed the reasoning behind the act was to celebrate the commemoration of the Second Battle of Bull Run. One of the students also claimed that their actions were not intended to be racist.
