School too Woke for 9/11 commemoration.

By Edmund DeMarche, Fox News

Students at a Washington state high school wanted to mark the 20th year since the Sept. 11 attacks by wearing red, white and blue at a patriotic-themed game but were refused because the event could “unintentionally cause offense to some who see it differently,” according to a report.

Jason Rantz, a host on KTTH 770/94.5FM, reported that the event was canceled by an unnamed staffer at Eastlake High School in Sammamish “at the last minute.” A student told the show that he was informed that the “red, white and blue was going to be seen as racially insensitive and may affect people in a way that we will not understand and for that reason that we were to change our theme.”

The station posted a screengrab of an email from one of the school’s associate principals to a parent that said she understands the “sacrifice and values our flag represents, but I think they [school leadership] just did not want to unintentionally cause offense to some who see it differently.”

The school’s principal and the associate principal did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News.

Rantz wrote that Chris Bede, the principal, and the district’s communication director did not go into specifics about who exactly would be offended by seeing the players dressed in the colors.

“Since it was not a home game, there was no opportunity to have an announcement about Patriots Day and to share why students were dressed in red, white and blue,” Shannon Parthemer, the district’s communication director, told the station.

The station reported that Bede seemed to be taken “by surprise” about the decision to call off the theme. Parthemer, who did not immediately respond to an email from Fox News, told Rantz that the decision was made by one unnamed staff member.
