Students: LGBT Flag Is Like Confederate Flag

Students and parents at a high school in Alabama are calling for the removal of a classroom LGBT “rainbow pride” flag, saying it is comparable to the Confederate flag.

More than 2,400 people thus far have signed a Change.org petition calling for the flag to be taken down at Auburn High School.

“The following signers of this petition ask that the Pride Flag flown in Mrs. Yeager’s classroom be removed as we strongly feel that it creates a hostile and provocative learning environment for students not comfortable to openly supporting the LGBTQ+ community in a public school where students come from diverse political and religious backgrounds,” the petition reads.

“Furthermore, we believe it is unprofessional and distracting for a teacher to be so openly displaying their political views in an unbiased and socially neutral public setting.” (Read more from “Students: LGBT Flag Is Like Confederate Flag” HERE)
