An 11-year-old student was arrested after refusing to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance and allegedly telling a teacher that “the flag is racist and the national anthem is offensive to black people,” according to reports.

The boy, a student at Lawton Chiles Middle Academy in Lakeland, Fla., was charged with disrupting a school function and resisting arrest without violence for the Feb. 4 outburst, according to Bay News 9.

He was also issued a three-day suspension.

  1. oh, come on. he’s a little boy and is repeating what he is hearing at home so he gets arrested? this makes a joke out of the arrest procedure. remove him from the program because he’s disrupting, but arrest? that is more absurd that this kids behavior
