Seems like Georgia's should be the opposite.

I'd heard that this still happened in parts of Georgia, but that was like 10 years ago. I had no idea this was still a reality. How on earth can anyone be okay with this??

"When the actor Morgan Freeman offered to pay for last year’s first-of-its-kind integrated prom at Charleston High School in Mississippi, his home state, the idea was quickly embraced by students — and rejected by a group of white parents, who held a competing “private” prom."

What. The. Fuck.

Also,

"Principal Luke Smith says the school has no plans to sponsor a prom, noting that when it did so in 1995, attendance was poor."

Ahh, so attendance is so much more important than equality. Right. I'm gonna go cut someone now.

PS: why don't black people ever smile??!! omg omg ;)

that is so 1800's
i wonder if they let Hispanics in
i think that is unconstitutional, so i think the u.s. should do something about it

They get away with it because it's not associated with the school. It's private, so I guess the government can't do anything about it.

If both parties agree, I don't see a problem.

If you read the article, clearly not everyone agrees at all.

Then again, forward would be fitting. As in "forward with our racism." Progress is one thing, moving forward with progress is another.
