Locals to School Children "Go back to Mexico!"

Ah, you have to love this, Sweet Home Alabama right here in NC. From the N&O a story about school kids that were standing up for their rights. They stayed the course, even in the face of racism. Could this be the next Democratic Majority?

About three dozen students at Smithfield-Selma High School walked out of classes this morning to protest immigration bills being debated in Congress this week.

They are the latest in a wave of high schoolers from California to Virginia protesting immigration legislation by walking out of school.

The students, mostly Hispanic, marched down Booker Dairy Road and U.S. 301 about 11 a.m., despite warnings from administrators that they risked suspension for skipping school. They waved signs protesting House Bill 4437, passed by the U.S. House of Representatives last December...
Many passers-by honked in support. Others shouted "Go back to Mexico." The original crowd swelled to about 50 as family members and observers joined the march.

But here, HERE is the best part.

By 1 p.m., the students had lapped the courthouse in Smithfield and were headed to the local Wal-Mart.

Good golly Ms. Molly - if the younger generation realizes that Wal-Mart is part of the Axis of Evil we might really be cooking with gas.
