Georgia High School Still Holds Segregated Proms. In 2013.

Come on now, what year is this?

Or maybe this is April Fool’s Day?

Nope.

Just stupidity.

The South really needs to stop this craziness. Are they trying to keep the stereotypes alive about the South being in a time bubble?

    I saw this on HuffPo yesterday and couldn’t believe it. Correct me if I’m wrong, but this is 2013, no?

    Saw this and could not believe it. I believe in 2002 another Georgia high school also held their first integrated prom.

    This is really stupidity, knowing I come from Atlanta and the majority of people still date and marry within their race. And when I was in high school, not a lot of mixed race teens could ever get prom dates because people felt confused by them. Everyone was always going within their race just to feel comfortable. To them, mixed race people are not trustworthy because of their ability to attract other people of the opposite gender. Being mixed is tough, especially where I live, knowing I’m Filipino, Spanish, Chinese, and American with both half Asian/White parents from the Philippines.

      I find it so hard to hear stories like that. Yet I know it is the truth for how a lot of people live, staying separate from other people. That’s too bad about people over there making it tough on mixed people. I am so happy that our kids don’t get any of that here in L.A. In fact in their school, I think a lot of people see it is a cool thing about them and the many other mixed kids in their school. But alas, I know this is not how it is everywhere. Thanks for telling your story.
