In Northeast Ohio, a high school football player took on PC culture by carrying a thin blue line flag onto the field before a game to show his support for law enforcement – and now some claim this show of support equates to racism. 

The superintendent of the school district, Michael Hanlon responded to the incident with the blue line flag by saying the school is “fundamentally anti-racist," as if the flag supporting the police somehow is racist.

Instead of supporting the student and football team, in what should be considered non-political activity, Hanlon decided to ban the use of the flag in the future. This action has captured the attention of the community.

The Chardon community decided to support the high school student.
