1000-for-wearing-feather-at-graduation/?intcmp=obinsite

A Native American student did not receive her high school diploma and
faces a $1,000 fine because she wore a feather during her graduation.

WPMI reports 17-year-old Chelsey Ramer decided to wear the eagle feather
during her May 23 graduation at an Alabama high school to honor her
heritage. Ramer is a member of the Poarch Creek Band of Indians.

Although the school prohibits graduates from wearing "extraneous items"
during the ceremony, Ramer says she asked the headmaster if she could wear
the feather anyway. She was denied, and was told she had to sign a dress
code contract to walk at graduation.

Ramer did not sign it, and wore the feather in her graduation ceremony
anyway. She was denied her diploma, and now must pay a $1,000 fine to the
school to receive it and her transcripts, WPMI reports.

Ramer says she feels it was worth it to wear the feather, but is angry
over the school's actions.

"I don't think it's fair at all. I feel like its discrimination," Ramer
told WPMI.



-- Barack Obama, reelected by the dumbest voters in the history of the United States of America. Eric Holder, racist black murdering United States Attorney General, still has his job. Nancy Pelosi, Democrat criminal, accessory before and after the fact to improper vetting of Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama, a confirmed felon using SSAN 042-68-4425, belonging to a dead man. Obama ignored the brutal killing of an American diplomat in Benghazi, then relieved American military officers who attempted to prevent said murder in order to cover up his own ineptness. Obama continues his goal of disarming America while ObamaCare increases insurance premiums 200% and leaves millions without health care. Obama helped bankrupt Illinois. Democrat run Chicago closes 54 public schools.

My opinion is just that, my opinion.
So make no investment decisions based on my opinion.
