WTH, Segregated Prom

Wilcox County still has segregated prom. Four girls are best friends, but can't go to the prom together b/c two of them are white and two are black. The parents are all trying to raise money for a prom so the kids can all go together. The girls said if they show up at each other's prom, they will be escorted away. Wow, i'm in AL and didn't know this was still going on.

I think they should all protest and not go to either prom. Tell the planners to shove it up their ass. How ignorant.

My husband extended family lives in a small town where someone who isn't white moves in, they don't turn on the gas/electric ect.
