An 11 year old black boy was arrested for refusing to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance at school

Now, this is infuriating! An 11 year old black boy refused to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance in school (which is perfectly fine and legal). But when he did, his teacher told him to leave America and to go back to Africa. The teacher then had him arrested for being disobedient.

"I want the charges dropped and I want the school to be held accountable," Dhakira Talbot said of her son's arrest at the Florida school.

The teacher was a substitute teacher and claimed to police that the child made a threat. Now the school says "We are looking into this matter, but this individual will no longer be allowed to substitute at any of our schools." Despite this, the kid was suspended by the school for three days.
