Confederate Flag Incident at School*The Situation: A Caucasian student came to school toting a Confederate flag on his backpack.

Obviously, this didn’t sit well with some of the black students especially. Two of whom approached the guy and asked him what was up. Things became heated to the level that there was  shoving and strong words.

Fortunately, the argument never rose beyond that as school officials jumped in quickly. The backpack was searched and no weapons were found, but the three students were all suspended for their disruptive behavior.

“When you become a disruption where students can’t learn because of a distraction, then that needs to be removed,” principal Wesley Cupp said.

The incident happened at Rockmart High School, and though no weapon was found students didn’t escape the lock-down drill that happened later Wednesday after rumors surfaced of other students planning to bring in Confederate flags.
