A Virginia student who's leading the fight against his high school's ban on clothes emblazoned with the Confederate flag says he's unsure what the students' next step will be.
    
Houston Miller was among roughly 20 students suspended from Christiansburg High School on Thursday after holding a rally to protest a new policy banning vehicles with Confederate flag symbols from the school parking lot and refusing to take off clothing displaying the symbol.
    
Miller said Thursday that he wasn't going to back down and had been organizing another rally for Friday outside the school.
    
But he later said that some students had received angry messages online about the issue and were worried about the potential for violence.
