Ughhhh.....

I wish I could be shocked by this but I had a college friend who said he went to a segregated prom at his school in Texas. I was in college from 2004-2008. :/

The kicker is that this guy said nobody ever really questioned the black prom/white prom nonsense. It was just simply how things were done in this assbackwards town. Sad!

Its such a learning moment. I hope parents are using this as a tool to teach their children. Racism DOES still exist, no matter what MTV says. You can fight it individually (as these students are doing) but sometimes you just can't stop it. And yes, the person you called your friend in math class will be attending the white's only prom and enjoying it. Act accordingly.

Depressing, but damn it, so true.

In 10th grade I gave a speech in English class about all the things in the world that pissed me off. Segregated proms and laws banning interracial marriage were on the list.

I don't understand how this is still possible. Kudos to the young people for standing up for themselves.

I thought this bullshit died out a while ago. I applaud these kids and their willingness to stand up to a community of ass hats. I hope they not only manage to desegregate the prom, and make it the most kick ass event ever.
