Why Is This Tennessee School Racist Against This Nice Girl's Confederate Flag Dress?

News

Like any other girl who dreams of the magical night that is her prom, high school senior Texanna Edwards just wanted to dress up as the muscle car from "The Dukes Of Hazzard,"the General Lee. The lady who was the prom sponsor suggested before the Confederate flag dress was made that this was a bad idea, and that Texanna needed to clear it with the school principal. But Texanna didn't ask for approval, Texanna says, because "I didn’t think I needed to. I had one teacher tell me it was a bad idea. but I just thought she only said that because it would offend people." Makes sense so far! Then Texanna got to prom and they wouldn't let her in unless she went home and changed, but Texanna didn't want to go home and change, because why would the principal tell her a Confederate flag dress was "offensive and inappropriate" when everybody knows that is not the case it is about heritage or something and it's not like Gibson County High School has had race problems except that it has?


Anyway, Texanna did not get to go to her prom this year unless she went home and changed but Texanna didn't go home and change and now her story is in the newspaper, because there has never been a greater injustice in the history of prom.

Donald Trump held another great big slob picnic in Orlando, Florida, last night, where he "announced" the "start" of his 2020 campaign, which will be exactly like his 2016 campaign except for the minor detail that he's actually been in the White House since 2017, which is really a bummer, man. Still, it's no reason he can't run as an outsider who vows to protect everyday Americans who believe he's just like them. The rally was a mishmash of the same damn shit he's said a million times before, and the rubes loved almost every minute of it except for the boring parts when he talked about stuff he's supposedly achieved in office, because not even his supporters care about trade policy or tariffs. They want an enemy, and they want to be told they and Trump will destroy that enemy together because they are the real Americans. So that's what Trump gave them, again and again, a feast of fear and resentment designed to get them to the polls. It was enough in 2016, and Trump thinks it'll do the job in 2020.

If there was anything new in the speech -- which was mostly Trump reading from a teleprompter, plus the expected weirdass asides -- nobody has identified it. He complained about the press and the crowd chanted "CNN sucks," and he explained what a threat to the nation Hillary Clinton is -- in fact, he mentioned her eight times during the 80-minute rant.
