First, what hideous dresses.

Second, these students at Chaparral High School in Parker, Colorado posing for their prom photo with a large Confederate flag should be ashamed of themselves. Gun toting, confederate flag loving teenagers, just what the world needs.

Of course of the anonymous teens in the photo has already came forward to apologize, probably out of embarrassment.

One of the girls in the image, who has not been identified, has apologized.

It’s hard to say sorry when that’s the only thing that can come out of my mouth right now,” the student told Fox 31 Denver. “I feel like there should be a better word for it.”

A mother of the son in the photo says she was shocked to see it.

When he got out there he was surprised that guns were brought out and the Confederate flag was brought out,” the parent  told the station.

The mother blamed the other parents who encouraged the photo.

“I think in their immaturity they kind of think it is a cowboy thing, but to have parents feed into it and support it is really upsetting to me,” she said.

University of Colorado-Boulder ethnic studies professor Arturo Aldama issued a statement to Raw Story. “The image is pretty disturbing, especially if they have real assault rifles in their hands,” she said in the statement. “Not to mention, the Confederate flag and its legacy of white supremacy, Klan violence and the Jim Crow South.”

    Not surprised nor shocked, it just another Wednesday people.

  • The students didn’t do this alone. Other adults, other teenagers, etc. were probably involved in inspiring these teenagers to do this. What they did was evil and wrong. The Confederacy was a terrorist, murderous movement. They supported the exploitation of black people and they wanted a laissez faire economic system. They sought to expand territories as a means to fund their white supremacist system. They were defeated with the great support of black men and black women. Black Union forces contributed a huge amount of courage in the defeat of rebel extremists. We should never forget how vicious that symbol of the Confederacy is. We have to inspire our people to follow wisdom not follow. Our skin color, our heritage, and our inner beings as black people should be not only loved, but respected. In this generation, we have to keep on telling the truth prodigiously. Of course, those white teenagers will issue a token apology. That is standard operating procedure for bigots.

    this is the next generation of whites. it’s not what they say, its what they do that explains who and what they are. one picture is worth a thousand words.

      I strongly and respectfully disagree.

    • Rizzo

      of course you strongly, and respectfully, disagree.

    • disq141synergy

      I’ve encountered your type of negative narrative before and I/we are not easily deterred or discouraged. The battle goes on.

    • Rizzo

      of course you have and of course you aren’t and of course it will.

    Another situation(s) where teens follow parents and/or other kids. ““I think we need to be very careful of what we choose as our symbols,” Hunt said. “A significant amount of black and white Americans have a negative reaction to it because they relate it to slavery and segregation.” Omg, I can’t stand these types who show their ignorance proudly then back peddle! There is a movement against racism of young people that is strong and growing. This wht trash needs to return to their underground bunkers where they belong.

    Don’t you think it is kinda strange that U.S. governments allows the confederate flag to be displayed?
