Really.. This is America.. They came to this country, if they find if offensive to have American Pride, then go back home!
Lexington, Massachusetts may have played host to one of the first battles of the American revolution, but 240 years later, “American pride” is considered offensive to the school system.
Students on the dance committee at Lexington High School voted for “American Pride” to be the theme of this year’s prom, which was scheduled to be held April 10.
But administrators overruled that decision, saying it “excludes” other nationalities and canceled the dance.
Students swiftly and roundly criticized the move.
“People consider America to be a melting pot, so the fact that it was even considered offensive is what people are a little surprised about,” student Sneha Rao tells 7 News.
