When I lived in AL the proms, etc, were not segregated, BUT they did have a Homecoming Queen and a Black Homecoming Queen, A Prom King and Queen and Black Prom King and Queen. It is absolutely disgraceful. It is saying that the black people were on a different level than the other students. Like the black kidsÂ couldn't compete. I don't know if it is still going on. We moved in 2001.
Here in AZÂ it is not so blatant, but there is racism. If anyone has dark skin and a hispanic name people automatically assume they are an illegal from Mexico. Horrible things are said and doneÂ to people because so many assume they are illegally in the US. Not too long ago in PHX a man was walking in a parking lot on his phoneÂ speaking Spanish and he was brutally beat and murdered by a random man. The only motive the murderers gave is that the guy was probably illegal.

That is nuts, but it doesn't surprise me. I am against racism. We are all people regardless of color. God's law on not judging includes color of skin. Sadly it happens both ways still to this day. God bless
