One U.S. College BANS American Flag on Campus Following Trump Election

November 23, 2016

At Hampshire College in Massachusetts, they have now banned the American flag from being on their campus. This ban followed quickly after Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election. 

The day following the release of the election results, in protest the students lowered the flag to half-staff. On Veteran's Day, the same flag was found burned on campus. To end this controversy, the school officials decided to ban the flag in hopes of ending the protests entirely.

Do you think they made the right decision?
