The federal government plans to investigate an Arizona high school over a "Redneck Day" celebration two months ago that was inspired by the popular Duck Dynasty television show on A&E.

According to the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights, the investigation will be "limited to whether a racially hostile environment was created due to language and actions that were not protected by the First Amendment."

As Fox News notes, students at Queens Creek High School on May 1 were encouraged to "dress like members of the reality show cast, but instead it was seen as offensive when students arrived at the school in stereotypical clothing."

Civil rights activists pointed to one student who was pulled aside and asked to change his Confederate flag attire as a sign that the day created a "racially hostile" environment. The DOE's office of Civil Rights said, "the display of the Confederate flag concerns rights protected by the First Amendment."

Heaven forbid people celebrate a culture that loves their Second Amendment rights, prays to God, and loves their families! But "gangsta culture" is okay.... :no:

Thought I would post this:


We live out in the country, drive pick-up trucks and may look like we're down on our luck.
But there's more to it than that and as a matter of fact we won't be hittin' you up for a buck.
We work hard for a living. We earn an honest day's pay.
We take care of our own and we'll not have it any other way.

I'll dig the heels of my boots deep into Dixie ground.
I'll be damned if I'm ever gonna run.
Some think they need to change us. The South must really get under their skin.
But I was born a Southern Son and raised up with my bible and my guns.
I learned their virtues when I was young. I clung to my bible and my guns.
Now they're the heritage of what I am, a Southern Redneck Man.

Come Sunday mornin' rain or shine you'll find me in a little wooden church.
It's nothin' fancy. We built it ourselves from the steeple to the bricks on the dirt.
My family's with me Sunday mornings. Our heads are bowed to the Lord.
Country folks down here are all of one accord.

I'll dig the heels of my boots deep into Dixie ground.
I'll be damned if I'm ever gonna run.
Some think they need to change us. The South must really get under their skin.
But I was born a Southern Son and raised up with my bible and my guns.
I learned their virtues when I was young. I clung to my bible and my guns.
Now they're the heritage of what I am, a Southern Redneck Man.

Try not to misunderstand us.
We live a lifestyle of freedom that most people won't ever see today.
Those who impose upon us the wrong they call right have been misled,
and we're not gonna change our ways.

I'll dig the heels of my boots deep into Dixie ground.
I'll be damned if I'm ever gonna run.
Some think they need to change us. The South must really get under their skin.
But I was born a Southern Son and raised up with my bible and my guns.
I learned their virtues when I was young. I clung to my bible and my guns.
Now they're the heritage of what I am.
They leave no doubt about where I stand,
and I'm proud to tell anyone I am a Southern Redneck Man.

I've seen the TV show "Duck Dynasty" and it certainly didn't strike me as being racist...am I missing something? Just to add, I'm what Southern Americans call a "Yankee" so perhaps I'm not quite 'getting it'?

I remember when I was still in high school here in California, a whole bunch of Mexicans across the state celebrated some Mexican pride day by taking down American flags right off their polls and putting up Mexican ones in the middle of the school day.  Didn't here a whisper of a federal investigation there.

The confed flag is racially hostile most everywhere. The fact that many here and in AZ don't know that is very sad.

So, because one child wore a conferderate flag, the whole school is going to be investigated as being raciest.

So are shirts and hats displaying X as in Malcolm X and blatant messages that I've seen kids wear like I'm black and I'm proud or brown pride.  Nothing wrong with showing pride in your heritage as long as it applies to everyone and we all know that's not the case.

A much bigger problem exists.  It is the leaders who have brainwashed everyone into thinking that someone else needs to take care of them.  Because they are failures and cannot get a fair shake in this world.  They then point to tge ones who aee successful and say, see how evil they are for being successful.  Their success should yours or no one should be successful.

The Confederate flag is part of our history.  People should be free to either like or dislike that portion of history....

If most folks would do their homework BEFORE posting...they would know the Confederacy stood for far more than just the continuance of indentured servitude....sadly...that is what is being taught and that is what will be remembered....the Confederate states had a point that has been forever lost behind the ugliness of slavery....total shame really.

YOU are free to hate the past and ignore the truth....I can appreciate that.  I can appreciate that millions have died so that you have the freedom to hate the truth....

I can appreciate the magnetism toward the worst parts of the Confederate agenda....

But I cannot condone ignorance.  There was far more things involved here than "slavery",,,,Lincoln was a very clever man.  Though he did not like the "coloreds"....he used them....to astounding effect by the way....and you Liberals forget all the parts of history that are "inconvenient" to your cause....fakes...all of you....liars come to mind....but the truth is....most of you are too stupid to know the truth when it slaps you in the face....hard to call an idiot a liar when they are poorly educated and propagating the lies they believe....

"I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it."  Thomas Jefferson
