Imagine your kid wearing eye black to a football game.
Now imagine your kid’s eye black getting them suspended and banned from sporting events for “blackface.”
It’s not only ridiculous — it’s unconstitutional.
Unfortunately, this true story happened to a middle schooler in La Jolla, California.
Help FIRE demand the district remove the infraction from the student’s disciplinary record, lift its ban on his attendance at future school sporting events, and reaffirm its duty to uphold the First Amendment by sending an email to Principal Jeff Luna today.
