Student Settles Over Confederate DressBreaking News
Jacqueline Duty filed a lawsuit after Greenup County school officials called the dress too controversial and kept her out of Russell High School's May 1, 2004 prom.
Duty claimed the district violated her First Amendment right to free speech and to celebrate her heritage.
School officials notified the U.S. District Court last week about the settlement. Duty's attorney, Earl-Ray Neal, confirmed a settlement had been reached but said the terms will not be disclosed.
The settlement must be approved by the judge, Neal said.

Offensive to whom? The indoctrinated? Certainly not those who accept differences of opinion as a part of life. Let's see--we'll "celebrate diversity" while forcibly condemning/suppressing opposing thought. That is spelled f-a-s-c-i-s-m. And the worst fascists are the current crop of politically correct elites who smugly and self-righteously act as judge, jury, and executioner without even knowing the parties involved or the facts about the case. I guess Jackie has no rights because she doesn't think like you. How pathetic!

Yeah, her right to be a pro-active racist and to engage in offensive social behavior should be celebrated by all of us.

I'm glad she stood for them and for what she believes in.
