I hope they played "Brown Sugar" at the integrated prom.

Society's only hope is that genetic defects will eventually cull that herd.

there's also a blacks only prom that white people weren't invited to.  Just FYI.


So their proms are separate but equal?

FYI: non-whites had their own water fountains and restrooms under Jim Crow, but that didn't make it any better.

They aren't going to die off. They're having kids, and their kids are having kids. They are not going away. Haven't you seen idiocracy?

Tat'dGreaser: Nickster79: When I was in college, a friend of mine's grandparents had a lake house that he was allowed to have friends stay at for a weekend.

The group he selected included one of our black friends who was far more responsible and less likely to cause extensive property damage than the rest of us idiots....but his grandparents stated that the community had a "no black allowed" policy that would not be broken.

/this was in 2002

Uhhhhhhh what are the chances that there was no such policy and it was just the grandparent's policy?


It was the entire community's "unspoken" policy that lived up by the lake. They pretty much all agreed that no black people would ever be allowed on their plots of land as guests.

These fine upstanding folks just didn't want their daughters to grow up to be single moms.

Instead they will be the wives of abusive alcoholics trying to cram4 kids into a Camaro or pickup truck.

Because blacks are a minority and were underrepresented in Congress.

Same reason why there is an NAACP. A NAAWP organization just sounds stupid. What the hell do we white people need to advance? What rights does the majority race in this country need to fight for?


White History Month! Because white people are so underrepresented in traditional history books.

El Brujo: I'd be OK with more "whites only" activities if it would mean I wouldn't be subjected to hip hop music.

/I'm kidding.  Kind of.


You'd be sorely disappointed.  I've helped at proms of both mostly white and mostly black schools.   Both have the same basic selection of pop/dance music you hear on the local Clear Channel station.  It is always run by a guy with shiatty mp3 on his laptop or ipod.  These shiatty quality digital files (you'd think they could use lossless/flac/whatever) are pumped at the maximum volume via some decrepit pawn shop amps that push way too much noisy music to whatever discount PAs they brought with them.  So the uniform result I always find is not that it the hip hop that makes the music bad but rather the completely trashy way they play any music.

How about equal rights? How many white kids don't get into their college of choice because of the color of their skin? How many political appointees get in because they are black? Why aren't NBA teams racially equal? Where are the fast track programs for white males?

Just because there are more of a people, don't assume they have any special rights, it is quite the opposite. Scary thing is, in 2040 or whenever whites become the minority, do you think black people and Democrats will be fighting for our rights? Hell no. You might push for white slavery then.

Funny, but I have to disagree.  Seriously, they know racism is wrong or they'd be like the white power groups (KKK, neo-Nazis, etc) and proclaim how proud they are of being white and hating all the other groups.  They would have proudly proclaimed that this was a private party for whites-only because they didn't want to their children to have to sit at the same table as a dirty n-word.

slayer199: The fact that they don't want to talk about it is evidence that they KNOW they're in the wrong.  Seriously, WTF.


It's a matter of beliefs. It seems the government doesn't consider the belief that tax payer money should go to those who wish to segregate. So the folks that have those frowned upon beliefs have to hold their proms in private. Not talking to reporters who want you to feel bad about your beliefs is wrong.

So interesting that issues in the USA are either 'black' or 'white'.  I live near Toronto (one of the burbs) and I am trying to picture how such a dance would go at my kids' school.  I think there would 10 kids at each 'segregation'.

"Ok, white kids (including pale Middle Eastern/Arabic) dance this Monday, followed by the black kids (Caribbean and Africa) dance on Tuesday, brown asian kids (Indians, Sikhs, various 'istans') on Wednesday, light asian/oriental kids (Chineses, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese) on Thursday, and you mixed-race types can be on Friday."

Seriously.  It's 2013.  And you are going to send your kid to a private dance so that they won't dance near someone with black skin.

In 2013.   Not 1953.  2013.

Their racist faces should be plastered all over the place to make it easier for the world to mock them.

Actually this worked pretty well. If you didn't notice, every one of the racist toolbags didn't want to talk on camera or say anything. These people didn't want attention drawn to them, they're ashamed about it. I find that hilarious.


Yes. I think that is the whole point. You can't force anyone to integrate a private prom, but you can totally shame the asshole parents who perpetrate this bullshiat.

Please don't lump rural Georgia in with the rest of the USA.  In all major cities (and most rural areas outside of the south), you'd have (at a minimum) reasonable diversity and tolerance.  It's only in places like Wilcox county that you get this kind of messed-up culture.

The school not having a prom is part of the reason for this.  Previous articles on this said the private proms started after the school refused to have an integrated prom.   Having one will take away the "well, there's no school one" justification.

CruJones: there's also a blacks only prom that white people weren't invited to. Just FYI.


The "black prom" was open to whites.  Few of the racist crackers wanted to go.  Just FYI.

Please don't get the idea I'm cuttin' on you but here's how it works.
White folks already HAVE their own versions of these organizations and what not.  They just call is "Society".  And in general most folks of color aren't asked to join in this greater "Society".
Oh sure, whites hire non-white police and nurses and what not, whites even let a few in the door to the country club but in general, non-white individuals are kept out.
to digress for a moment-
In cases where people of color get included in the greater society (as in the country club mentioned above) it could be considered what is called Cultural Hegemony.  In this instance, the dominant culture tells a minority that "if you work hard and keep your nose clean, you may join us".  It keeps people in line without heavy artillery because everyone wants to be a part of the greater society (in theory)
Historically, removing the concept of Cultural Hegemony is what made the Black Panthers so dangerous to the white majority and resulted in the demonization and murders of it's leaders.

You do realize that white people are more than welcome and encouraged to join and take part in those groups don't you?

So please stop with the "But but the NAACP" defense when trying to defend white bigotry. It makes you look even dumber than you do by defending bigotry.

It's a private affair, no laws broken, just a news person trying to make news. I'm sure there were black affairs going on, and she chose not to interview them?
 
2013-04-29 09:33:03 AM  
CBS Atlanta News asked Deal about the segregated proms, he said, "I believe anything associated with a school should not have the distinction based on race or gender or any other separation. However, when pressed, he said, "Some of these are just local issues and private issues and not something state government needs to have its finger involved in."

That did not sit well with Warnock. "The idea that these are private issues is really problematic... When the Montgomery bus boycott got started in 1955, that boycott was against a private bus company, and Rosa Parks stood up by not sitting down and said we won't accept segregation, not even on a private bus company, and the rest is history."



Sir, that is a bad analogy. Like it or not, its a private affair. They can have who ever they want there and it shouldn't make you salty because this isn't done by the school system. Leave the bigots to dance with each other

rhythmlessly to bad music while eating food that isn't properly seasoned. Fark do you care? Let them have each other.


I don't know if its been said, but to anyone who says, "no one complains when the blacks have their African-American events," please get some perspective. Look, so-called black events were born out of neccesity because of shiat like this. Racists excluded blacks from their events so we made a black version.
 
2013-04-29 09:33:11 AM

Every time I leave the (sub)urban jungle that is Atlanta, I'm always reminded that the rest of the state is one really weird place.   I don't get far off the road when I'm headed down I-75, but even I'm struck by how funny the waitresses at Cracker Barrel talk when you get into the southern hinterlands of Georgia.
