Kessel Davis I agree with you. I did the same thing in the 3rd grade and was suspended and my mom beat me for it....

I am proud of this young man. He was right to stand up for himself, his people and his right to freedom of speech (opinion). I did the same thing in the 70's (8-12 years old). But I was threatened and punished by teachers and other school officials. I also was pulled out of class a number of times (counseling and harassed) and white people often visited my home. Their opinion was that something had to be wrong with me to refuse and be adamant about not standing up and pledging allegiance to the flag. You see, I was born in Birmingham, Alabama. I saw and heard a lot of negative and damaging things. I saw first hand how the Caucasian and Hispanic children were treated differently and better than me (a black child). Experiencing many emotions and just not fully understanding the situation, at age 6, I came home and told my mother that I wanted to be white. She being a young mother slapped me and tried to explain to me that I should be proud of who I was. That was a pivotal moment for me and from that point to the present I refuse to stand for the flag and pledge allegiance. I was not written with me in mind nor has it been changed or updated. So...it is a constant reminder and insult to know everyday that my life does not matter.
