High School Suppresses Americanism
By Donald A. Moskowitz

It was originally scheduled to be an "American Pride" themed dance with students wearing red, white and blue clothing. Evidently, some students thought promoting American patriotism was not politically correct due to the diversity of the student population. The school administrator suggested changing the theme to a "National Pride" dance, wherein students would wear clothes depicting their "individual nationalities".
After a huge public outcry the Lexington Superintendent of Schools went before the Lexington School Committee and said the "American Theme" of the dance will remain.
What is going on in Lexington, MA, a cradle of American liberty? Since when do school administrators suggest elevating ancestral nationality above our own American nationality? Aren’t we all Americans first and foremost? Isn’t that our nationality?
