First, what hideous dresses.
Second, these students at Chaparral High School in Parker, Colorado posing for their prom photo with a large Confederate flag should be ashamed of themselves. Gun toting, confederate flag loving teenagers, just what the world needs.
Of course of the anonymous teens in the photo has already came forward to apologize, probably out of embarrassment.
One of the girls in the image, who has not been identified, has apologized.
“It’s hard to say sorry when that’s the only thing that can come out of my mouth right now,” the student told Fox 31 Denver. “I feel like there should be a better word for it.”
A mother of the son in the photo says she was shocked to see it.
“When he got out there he was surprised that guns were brought out and the Confederate flag was brought out,” the parent told the station.
The mother blamed the other parents who encouraged the photo.
“I think in their immaturity they kind of think it is a cowboy thing, but to have parents feed into it and support it is really upsetting to me,” she said.
University of Colorado-Boulder ethnic studies professor Arturo Aldama issued a statement to Raw Story. “The image is pretty disturbing, especially if they have real assault rifles in their hands,” she said in the statement. “Not to mention, the Confederate flag and its legacy of white supremacy, Klan violence and the Jim Crow South.”
