Michigan Students Reprimanded for 'Distasteful' 9/11 Shirts
Arab-American Students Say Shirts Were Intended to Show Class Spirit, Not Threaten
Jan. 6, 2010

A group of Arab-American high school students were reprimanded for wearing sweatshirts they made which school administrators said "distastefully" referenced the 9/11 terror attack on the World Trade Center.

Michigan school bans senior T-shirt that's reminiscent of 9/11.

Eleven boys from Edsel Ford High School's graduating class of 2011 in Dearborn, Mich., wore hooded sweatshirts to school Monday depicting the numeral 11 with windows drawn on each digit, so they looked like towers. Alongside the towers is a thunderbird, the school's mascot, flying towards them. The text below the images read "You can't bring us down."

"The whole design gave prominence to the 9/11 tragedy, and of course was very upsetting to staff and students," said Principal Hassane Jaafar in a statement.

So much for free speech in this country but the school does reserve the right as to which logo it wants to use or not use.
