INTEGRATED PORN!?

Oh.

Never mind.
 
2013-04-03 08:48:42 PM  
That's pretty embarrassing even for Georgia.

But don't call them racists.

Good on the students for leading the charge to integrate. With every generation the south is improving. It does make me wonder how many segregated proms are held because of student preference, and how many are done at the behest of the teachers and parents.
 
2013-04-03 09:22:18 PM  
Mississippi just had a mess on their hands recently with one of these, too. Lemme see if I can find it....

Oh. They made a movie about it.

I can't for the life of me think of why black people would even want to let white people into their prom.
 
2013-04-03 09:35:32 PM  
I can believe it, subs.

Elegy: Good on the students for leading the charge to integrate. With every generation the south is improving.


That's because with every generation the South is seeing more transplants from areas of the country that aren't complete farking backwaters.  I grew up in Savannah - I went back a few years ago after a long time away, and I was shocked by how completely backward it was.  Macon is even worse.

You have no idea how thankful I am for modern modes of transportation and the resulting shifts in numbers of people who leave their hometowns.

I've been to Macon and I can believe it.

So I guess a gay couple would probably upset the peach cart, huh?
 
2013-04-03 10:12:29 PM  
Yes, sir, the South is gonna change. Everything's gonna be put on electricity and run on a paying basis. Out with the old spiritual mumbo jumbo, the superstitions, and the backward ways. We're gonna see a brave new world where they run everybody a wire and hook us all up to a grid. Yes, sir, a veritable age of reason. Like the one they had in France. Not a moment too soon.

FTFA:  If any race other than Caucasian tries to attend the white prom, Bloodworth said they "would probably have the police come out there and escort them off the premises."
That was the case just last year as a biracial student was turned away by police.


I'm really at a loss.  I consider myself pretty rational and don't want to be the kind of person who has trouble believing something because he just doesn't want it to be true, but this one gives me a headache.  Has the President heard about this, because this seems like the kind of thing you deploy the National Guard about.

"Those" people from Macon are too "urban" to have a segregated prom with.

Oh Georgie, you'll always be a stain on my birth certificate.


Hey!  I moved here.

Well, not really.  I moved to Atlanta, which any True Southerner will proudly tell you isn't The Real South.  I will not argue with that.
 
2013-04-03 10:15:43 PM  
You'd think someone would attempt to attend, have to cops called, launch a lawsuit, profit, then move out of that hillbilly city.

Confabulat: That's pretty embarrassing even for Georgia.


Um, the town I used to live in HAD an integrated prom, but it didn't stop some parents from holding their own prom anyhow where only a certain few were invited.

/true story:  I came close to going to a prom like six years ago
//I'd known the family since I was like 15, and they'd asked me to go out with their daughter
///but, as much as I wanted to do it, events came up that were beyond my control
 
2013-04-03 10:20:03 PM  
Any police officer who would escort a student off the property for daring to show up at the wrong dance is wholly unfit to be a part of the justice system in any capacity.

Christ, what an asshole.

2013-04-03 10:22:03 PM  
Jesus.

WTF are people thinking down there?  What about the Latino and Asian kids, which prom do they get to go to?

I'm guessing the Chinese kids get to go to WhitePromTM, and the Indian kids get to go to BlackPromTM(much to the outrage of their parents).  And of course the Mexican kids won't be attending, they're working that night.

That's embarassing for frikkin anyone... I don't see how there hasn't been a lawsuit.  I kinda wish a lawsuit could have happened without there being a media circus. But still... yeah, there should have been some serious lawsuittin' going on down there.  There's no excuse for it.

In some aspects it is, such as the oppressive heat and barricade your house because crime is really bad here.  BUT they are what the rest of the South should be.  Until I see change, I will NEVER move back down there.  I want my kids to have a 21st century education, not a 19th century education with 'puters.

Sadly, the "prom" in question isn't an official school event, or paid for with public funds.   Ergo,  it's a private party,  and they can choose to allow anyone they want to attend or not attend to their hearts content....and yes, that makes people trying to gatecrash "Trespassers" who can have the police called on them.

Utter douchebags, yes.   Deserving of scorn and ridicule, yes.   Illegal, no.

He's doing his job.  If you had a party at your house and someone showed up you didn't invite and refused to leave.......you would most likely call the cops.  This situation isn't any different.

That's actually a common discussion here.  "I've got to get my kids out of the South before they start school."  The money's good and the cost of living is low here as long as you're not hoping to educate your children beyond a 4-3 defense.  The Tampa 2 is too complex.

I moved here from DC and was totally shocked (yes, TOTALLY) at the racism directed towards whites.  If a prom is segregated here....it is because black people want it that way.

That guy kept poking me in the ass with his baton about 10 years ago at the old Loca Luna.  I was flattered of course, but I've always been a bigger fan of Willie Terry aka Bicycle Bob aka Burrito Bob.

If it was 1955 this would make sense that kids might be fighting to have a prom together but it is 2013.  My brain can't even comprehend the idea of a "white only" event involving school kids.  I don't care where the money comes from to pay for it. It teaches kids to treat people of different races differently and more specifically that white folks are more important and exclusive than other races.  I am just shocked that shiat like this happens.

Didn't realize this was the case until reading some of the comments here. Around here the proms are all put on by the school district with some private sponsorship.

/I still think, were I a police officer, I'd quietly find a 'more important' call to attend to for a few hours.
