He is part of history and as long as the student was not promoting violence or taunting anyone he should be allowed to wear it. I also think he got approval first so no one can blame the kid.

His parents should have known better than to send him to school like that. Only if this was a history dress up would that be appropriate. I must say that the costume was very on point and I can see why he won but still unappropriate.
