Patriotic Attire Worn At High School Game Deemed Offensive

posted by Justice & Drew - 

From Fox News:

Students at an Iowa high school have apologized to a neighboring school for wearing red, white and blue to a recent basketball game. 

The Valley High School students' USA-themed attire was seen as offensive because some of the rival school's players were from refugee families.

Student leaders at Valley sent a letter of apology to Des Moines North High last week: 

It has been brought to our attention that the decision by the Valley High School student section to wear U.S.A. apparel at our game last night was offensive to members of your community and fan base. We are deeply sorry if we have offended anyone in any way. We have traditionally dressed in such a fashion for great games such as the one last night. Everyone here at Valley has immense respect not only for your team and players but for your community as a whole. Please know that our intent was in no way to offend or demean—just to support our own team in a way we have done before.
