Illustrative of the current political and social climate in which we live in this country, an 11-year-old at Lawton Chiles Middle Academy in Lakeland, Florida was arrested after a substitute teacher demanded he stand and recite the Pledge of Allegiance.

The substitute teacher asked her sixth-grade class to stand and recite the pledge, but the student refused, telling the teacher that the flag was racist, and that the anthem was offensive to black people.

The substitute challenged the boy “Why if it was so bad here he did not go to another place to live?” He replied “they brought me here.”

She continued “Well you can always go back, because I came here from Cuba and the day I feel I’m not welcome here anymore I would find another place to live.”

“Then I had to call the office because I did not want to continue dealing with him,” the teacher said.

The student was eventually arrested by the school’s resource officer for refusing to follow multiple commands and calling school staff members “racist”, according to the arrest report. The boy also reportedly threatened to get the principal and the resource officer fired, and that he would beat the teacher, which the boy and his mother denies.

Talbot, the mother of the 11-year-old, places blame on the substitute, telling Bay News 9, “She was wrong. She was way out of place. If she felt like there was an issue with my son not standing for the flag, she should’ve resolved that in a way different manner than she did.”

The more our President calls black men “sons of bitches” for kneeling during the anthem, and lawmakers defend him, and our country is held hostage over a border wall, we can expect more and more of these kind of instances.
