Teen’s Racist Prom Invite

This is an interesting article about a student who used a racist joke to invite a girl to the prom.  It’s hard to know whether the student’s First Amendment rights would be violated or not if he was disciplined, without knowing more about any disruption the photo may have caused at school (i.e. the Tinker test), but the author of the article does a good job of laying out the various tests (Tinker and Fraser) and the issues facing both the school and the student.  And I must say, kudos to the student and his family for taking responsibility for his actions and taking this matter seriously.
