    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."

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

    Better late than never, I guess...

    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.
