ABC13- A 7th grader in Rosenberg says he was forced by school administrators to cover up his Star Wars t-shirt. Joe Southern says his son, Colton, wore a shirt depicting the “Star Wars – The Force Awakens” logo, along with a Storm Trooper holding a weapon, to class Thursday at George Junior High School. He’s apparently worn it to school several times before without any issue.
On Thursday, though, school officials told Colton the shirt was banned because it has a gun, or at least a picture of what in the movie is weapon. “It’s political correctness run amok. You’re talking about a Star Wars t-shirt, a week before the biggest movie of the year comes out. It has nothing to do with guns or making a stand. It’s just a Star Wars shirt,” Southern said.
A spokesperson for Lamar Consolidated Independent School District says the LCISD secondary school handbook spells out potential violations of dress code. The list includes “symbols oriented toward violence.” Administrators say they did not reprimand the student, though they could have required him to change or assigned him in-school suspension. They say they only required him to zip up his jacket.
So this is the world we are living in now, huh? A kid has to cover up his Star Wars shirt because a fucking Storm Trooper has a laster blaster in his hand. Why stop there? Maybe any shirt with the word “War” should be covered up too.
But seriously, when people in Texas are pulling shit like this, you know it’s bad. Even the mom captialized TEXAS to say “Yo assholes, did you forget we love guns down here?” I thought that state was pussification proof. I feel like if you are born in Texas, you leave the womb with a Smith and Wesson and unlimited ammo like a Grand Theft Auto cheat code. Nope, you can’t even rock the freshest Stormtrooper threads the Lone Star State has to offer without getting your balls busted these days. George Washinton must be doing summersaults in his grave right now.
