11/30/16- Roland Martin talks Lee Francis, the black male teacher in Fayetteville, North Carolina after being suspended for stepping on an American flag during a teaching of the First Amendment.

“it was not act of defiance at all. we were teaching about the American Revolution. We were going through each amendment and we get to the part about symbolic speech. I used the flag as a demonstration. It was a couple taps of my foot, I don’t deny that I stepped on it, but that was it. I was not in any way influencing them,” Francis said.
