gravebayne2: I see nothing wrong with what they do. it's kinda dumb, but not wrong.


Really, you don't see anything wrong in excluding a group of people based solely on their skin color?

Right or wrong, it is still their right of free association.

Mock26: sumida sublight: Mock26: Occam's Nailfile: Mock26: Just clarify, the word "prom" does not always mean a school sponsored dance.  A bunch of white parents can get together, throw a private party on the same date as the school's official prom, and call their own segregated dance a prom.  And, as such, they can legally bar entrance to anyone who is not on their guest list.

And they should get their asses kicked for it.  On TV.

Why?  Sure, I find their racism to be repugnant, but they are free to be racist and have a private party with a white only guest list.  I may not approve but I will certainly defend their right to do so.

You realize, when Voltaire said "I disagree with what you say, but will defend to the death the right to say it" was talking about defending it from government force, not public ridicule. Voltaire himself was one of the most vicious satirists and social critics of his day.

Yes, I am fully aware of what that phrase originally meant.  But, I, like many people, feel that it is a very apt quote for this day and age.


Fark that, these people are an embarrassment to their country and to humanity in general. They deserve to be pointed at and mocked by those of us who've joined the 21st century.

So, you are basically saying "Fark the Constitution."  Nice to know that you only think the Constitution should only apply to people you approve of.

And do not get me wrong, I do agree that they deserve to vibe pointed at and mocked.  But, just as it is my Constitutionally guaranteed right to mock them, it is there Constitutionally guaranteed right of gather with like-minded individuals.  We may not like them, but what they are doing is well within their rights.
