A seventh-grader was reportedly banned from wearing his “Star Wars — The Force Awakens” t-shirt to school, because, after all, it depicted make-believe storm troopers shooting make-believe weapons.
And this didn’t happen in some wimpy, politically correct school in Vermont or Washington state; this happened in Texas, according to local ABC affiliate 13 Eyewitness News.
Colton Southern is by all standards a model kid. He’s active in his church, does volunteer work at a park near his Rosenberg home and he’s a boy scout for crying out loud.
But he’s also a huge ”Star Wars” fan.
“It’s political correctness run amok,” Colton’s father, Joe Southern, told the station “You’re talking about a Star Wars t-shirt, a week before the biggest movie of the year comes out. It has nothing to do with guns or making a stand. It’s just a Star Wars shirt.”

Southern wasn’t the only person who thought the school went too far, and took to social media to express their dismay.

And another depicted Peanut’s character Snoopy as a liberal.
Finally there was this:
@washingtonpost I guess the teachers are now banned from wearing Che Guevara, Malcolm X, and Mao shirts since those are symbols of violence.
