Week 8 Resource

March 9th, 2011

This is a link to a newspaper article on the Washington Post’s website about a bus driver in Oregon who was fired because he had a Confederate battle flag bumper sticker on his truck that was parked on school property while he was working. This story is interesting because it is an excellent example that these kinds of issues are definitely still occurring and in places that are as far away as you can possibly get from the South within the United States. It is definitely a nationwide issue. Also, the legal group that is going to represent the bus driver is the Charlottesville, VA based Rutherford Institute, which is the same institute that represented some kids in the book for this week who were fighting to wear the battle flag to school. They must feel extra strong that the battle flag should be represented.
