And they met that obligation by telling the kid to not bring back the disruptive item.
So, now that the school has told this kid (publicly, no less), that he is weird for liking MLP and that he would get bullied for bringing MLP accessories to school, what is your response when those same bullies pick on him anyway? He complies with the request to not bring anything MLP, but he still gets picked on. Using your own words:

or overlook the kid being picked on because they brought it on them self is the reasonable adult answer.
So since he didn't bring anything MLP-related in, the school should just overlook and ignore any bullying because, hey, fuck it, he's a weirdo and deserves it.
I hope your kids never have anything wrong with them that causes them to be the victims of bullying. But more than that, I hope you never have kids because you seem stupid and the world doesn't need kids being raised by morons.

Being black is generally considered to be outside the control of the individual thus has nothing in common with something you are actively choosing to do to yourself.
Why remove the privilege for everyone because 1 parent either can't or chose not to exercise reasonable judgment.
You practically said that bullying isn't wrong, it's up to bullies to determine what is and isn't wrong. So it doesn't matter if skin color is outside the control of the individual, if a bully deems it wrong, it's wrong.
You know what's sad? You are against the parent for not exercising reasonable judgment, not against the parents of the kids who would bully the kid who owns accessories of something he enjoys.
