Georgia Teens Raise Money to Hold High School's First Integrated Prom Ever


Recommended Posts

"Ironically, it was just after the high school in Wilcox County, Georgia, became integrated thirty years ago that the school held its first segregated proms."

 

 

The school didn't become integrated until 1983? Man the south blows.

this is completely mind-boggling that anyone would even entertain the notion. but then you read this passage:

 

"While the school has no official stance on the matter, it did decide that there should be only one homecoming king and queen this year.

But it was an empty gesture: The white king and black queen were not allowed to take joint photographs for the yearbook, and neither is allowed to attend the other's prom.

"I think it's more of the personal opinions of those involved," City Councilman Wayne McGuintytold Fox24. "I don't think there is an effort made to keep black kids out of the white prom and to keep white kids out of the black prom."

Actually, there is.

When a biracial student attempted to enter the white prom just last year, police were called to turn them away."

wilcox county, you suck. wow.
