9th Circuit: rights of white people can be violated to stop racial violence by non-whites


Commit racially motivated violence against white people and get rewarded for it in California. That is is the message sent by the notorious 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

In 2010, a school in California ordered four white students to remove American flag t-shirts after Latino students threatened to commit racially motivated violence against them. Latino students yelled profanities, racial slurs, and threats of bodily harm against the white students.

The families of the students sued. Guess what? The 9th Circuit ruled that the school is justified in suppressing the right’s of white students if they fear racially motivated violence from non-whites. The 9th Circuit said that because Latino students have engaged in racially motivated violence in the past, the school was justified to believe they would do it again.

The message is clear. Racial threats and violence by non-whites against whites is rewarded. This is a green light for Latino school children in California to increase racial aggression and hostility towards white students.

From 9th Circuit Ruling…

The panel held that school officials did not violate the students’ rights to freedom of expression, due process, or equal protection. The panel held given the history of prior events at the school, including an altercation on campus, it was reasonable for school officials to proceed as though the threat of a potentially violent disturbance was real. The panel held that school officials anticipated violence or substantial disruption of or material interference with school activities, and their response was tailored to the circumstances.

On Cinco de Mayo in 2009, a year before the events relevant to this appeal, there was an altercation on campus between a group of predominantly Caucasian students and a group of Mexican students.2 The groups exchanged profanities and threats. Some students hung a makeshift American flag on one of the trees on campus, and as they did, the group of Caucasian students began clapping and chanting “USA.” A group of Mexican students had been walking around with the Mexican flag, and in response to the white students’ flag-raising, one Mexican student shouted “f*** them white boys, f*** them white boys.” When Assistant Principal Miguel Rodriguez told the student to stop using profane language, the student said, “But Rodriguez, they are racist. They are being racist. F*** them white boys. Let’s f*** them up.” Rodriguez removed the student from the area. At least one party to this appeal, student M.D., wore American flag clothing to school on Cinco de Mayo 2009. M.D. was approached by a male student who, in the words of the district court, “shoved a Mexican flag at him and said something in Spanish expressing anger at [M.D.’s] clothing.” A year later, on Cinco de Mayo 2010, a group of Caucasian students, including the students bringing this appeal, wore American flag shirts to school. A female student approached M.D. that morning, motioned to his shirt, and asked, “Why are you wearing that? Do you not like Mexicans[?]” D.G. and D.M. were also confronted about their clothing before “brunch break.”

These four students were ordered to remove their American flag t-shirts so Latino students would not be offended. The 9th circuit has ruled that this is acceptable, since Latino students resort to violence.
