"To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity,"- Nelson Mandela. This quote refers to Fortas' and Black's story about students that wear armbands to school. A student's rights should not be taken. The school officials took their rights away by making them take off their armbands or receive suspension. It was not a burden to anyone else. Armbands are a symbol, and they did not inflict their beliefs upon anyone. Forta stated that "the record fails to yield evidence that..." They only criticized a few of the students, and they did not do anything to the rest of them. Everyone that thinks that students should not wear armbands have good reasons. Symbols of war are a threat to the school. Justice Hugo
