A Georgia highschool is having a racially integrated prom... cool... except this is their FIRST ONE EVER.

Better late than never, I guess...

Its amazing, flipping through the national news and reading about these strange third world countries that exist in North America... places like "Georgia" and "Texas"... :D:D:D

Not true...they have a "white prom" and a "multiracial prom." While non-whites can't attend the "white prom" (and I agree that is as wrong as wrong can be), there didn't seem to be any such prohibition on whites attending the "multiracial prom."

WILCOX COUNTY, Ga. --Students at one south Georgia high school share classrooms and sports fields; but, they don't share the same prom.

The school holds one prom for white students and another for students of color.

"We're embarrassed, it's embarrassing, yeah it's kind of embarrassing," said student Stephanie Sinnot.
Stephanie and three other friends say they do everything together, except go to prom.

"We are all friends. That's just kind of not right that we can't go to prom together," said student Keela Bloodworth.

In a world full of color, Wilcox County High School still sees things as black and white.

"There's a white prom and then we have our integrated prom," said Bloodworth.

The girls said if any race other than Caucasian tries to attend the white prom, that student would probably be escorted off the premises by police. That was the case last year when a biracial student was turned away by police.

It’s been that way for as long as anyone can remember; and, it doesn’t stop at prom.

Homecoming is also segregated.

Believe it or not this does happen. I know you being from California are not used to seeing stuff like this. But it does happen.

Believe it or not there are people both Black and White that continue doing stuff like this for "History" or "It has always been like that". Alot of people don't want to change due to that it might restrict them if they integrate.

Both black and white people do it. So please Joe don't blame it on only one race or group.

So you're okay with police being used to enforce segregation?

If people want to be ignorant little bigots... that's all fine and dandy. But that behavior stops being okay the second they call the police to have a "darkie" escorted off the premises.

I disagree. I think the line was crossed when the school allowed it to continue to happen. Cops or not, having a racist function at a public school doesn't seem like something that should be tolerated.

Just to clarify an earlier statement. I don't mind integration. I did marry a Canadian. Just overrated.

It's wrong that's it's happening and its even worse that the cops are helping make it happen. When will somebody stand up and say this is BS.

Though I agree its wrong for a public school to be endorsing segregation... from what I understand the prom is technically a private function - so supposedly (according to what I read into the article) the function was legal. What was 100% not legal was cops, paid for by taxpayer dollars, being used to enforce the segregation.

You're not the only one. I have seen similar things, though. Not with race, but with a husband and his wife. They were a black couple from the south (Mississippi if I remember right). She had zero say in anything. There were days when she'd have doctors appointments on base. I saw 3 or 4 different times he'd bring her in at 0730 and she'd have to sit in the car until it was time for him to take her to her appointment. Sometimes the appointments were as late as noon. She'd be in the parking lot all morning.

Some places never change with what the rest of us think is right. In my mind, that's up to them as long as no laws are being broken. However, as everyone has pointed out, the cops are WRONG.

I suspect the cops were moonlighting. A lot of event organizers will hire off-duty officers as security just to keep things peaceful. If that's the case, it still presents a bad perception problem.

You have me all wrong. I am not for the police enforcing segregation.

What I was trying to say is that alot of times things like this is that it happened back in the day and the community doesn't want it to change due to "traditions". Don't just go off and blame white people because black people are as much to blame as white people.

Well it would be for me too if I wasn't from the South. Believe it or not the black community more often than not in some areas actually work to be segregated from the white people. Usually it is out of habit.

Then the article would have said "security" - it sounds like uniformed on duty police were called to escort a person (who was mixed race mind you... which makes the whole situation even more fucked up) off the premises.

Interesting theory except only the whites had their very own prom... all the other races were lumped together in a separate prom.

And apparently only "pure" whites were allowed... even those of mixed backgrounds were excluded.

I hear they do stuff like this so they don't gangbang each other to death for looking left when you should have looked right and not wearing sneakers and what not. It's OKAY though, they is black entertainment television, black history month, black this, black that, make somethign white and watch the world crumble. it's sad because I blame it on shitty ass parenting... previous generation fucking over the next, so on and so fourth.

I grew up in Texas... I can tell you, some things were prevelant. Growing up, there were towns of all whites, all blacks, ect. Hell, several times a year a cross would get burned in my neighborhood where a black family lived. I haven't been back in some time, but I know there are still pockets where some old traditions live on.

Well believe it or not the south isn't California Joe. For a long time there were predominantly only two races: black and white. So that's why it was like that. Get your head out of your ass

So why would they have a "whites only" prom and an "everybody else" prom - AND use taxpayer funded law enforcement to patrol the "whites only" prom and forcibly evict any darkies?

I grew up in NJ..very diverse community. Black, White, Asian, Middle-eastern, Indian, European, Catholic, Jewish, you name it....first generation immigrants to daughters of the revolution

When my friends came over the house, my Mom used to joke that "The United Nations is meeting"

I think that experience has served me well over the years.
