Courts have upheld the rights of students to wear clothing that conveys a message that others deem controversial. See Castorina v Madison County School Board, 246 F. 3d 536 (6th Cir 2001) (t- shirt depicting confederate flag); Chambers v Babbitt, 145 F. Supp. 2d 1068 (D. Minn. 2001) (sweatshirt emblazoned with message "Straight Pride); Barber v Dearborn Public Schools, 286 F. Supp. 2d 847 (E.D. Mich. 2003) (T-shirt with picture of President Bush with caption "International Terrorist"). It is interesting to note that the Webb City High School administration instituted a ban against wearing anything with a depiction of the confederate flag but the court in Castorina held that symbol, although racist, was constitutionally protected speech.
