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.

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.

jaylectricity: I can't for the life of me think of why black people would even want to let white people into their prom.


So they have something to laugh at on the dance floor?

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

taxandspend: Hotlanta! I hear they have a thriving gay scene down there


Most of the South has thriving gay scenes.  they are just called hunting/fishing camps

Xetal: I was just wondering how they haven't been sued into bankruptcy yet.


It's Macon.  Bankruptcy would be a financial step up

You know you're moving past your instilled childhood homophobia when you smile and high-five Baton Bob as you walk by.  (really that guy always makes my day)

coldf33t: Benevolent Misanthrope: coldf33t: I read TFA and still do not believe it.  You have no idea how sensitive racial crap is here. I call BS.

You're in Gwinnett, not Macon.  Trust me, WORLDS apart.  My guess is, you're a carpetbagger (family arrived in the South after 1865).  STFU unless you know whereof you speak.

I am a Daughter of the Revolution and a Daughter of the Confederacy (I have papers)...so,  fark you.  :)


So? Do Indians get to fark you?

coldf33t: 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.


A half black kid tried to go to last year's white prom and got tossed out by the cops.

FTFA:

"There's a white prom and then we have our integrated prom," said Bloodworth.

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.

It's been that way for as long as anyone can remember, and it doesn't stop at prom - homecoming is also segregated.

While still having two separate dances, the school decided to elect only one pair for king and queen for the first time this school year, and one of the integrated prom organizing students, Wallace, won.

"I felt like there had to be a change because for me to be a black person and the king to be a white person, I felt like, you know why can't we come together," Wallace asked.

But nothing changed. Wallace wasn't invited to the white homecoming. In fact, the king and queen took separate pictures for the school yearbook.


That's some deep in the bone cock-baggery.  Even separate pictures for the homecoming King and Queen.  Just WTF.  It even appears that the "BlackProm" allows white kids if they want to come, but it's the WhiteProm that's limited.

The parents bankrolling the race-based proms need a time-out and a spanking.  And possibly a deep Madingo dicking.

bluorangefyre: Rapmaster2000: taxandspend: I love the fact they're not doing away with segregated proms, just making the black prom integrated.

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.

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.


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.
