(THECOLLEGEFIX) — Daniel Behm, the superintendent of the Forest Hills Public Schools in Michigan, apparently thinks the flag representing the original 13 American colonies is an image of “hate.”
At a football game on September 9 where Forest Hills Central visited Ottawa Hills, several students from the former carried the Betsy Ross flag, in addition to a “TRUMP — Make America Great Again” banner.
Behm received a parent complaint about the students, which in turn led him to penning a “letter to the community” denouncing the students’ actions.

“And to wave a historical version of our flag, that to some symbolizes exclusion and hate, injects hostility and confusion to an event where no one intended to do so,” he wrote.
