What year is this?

Georgia has a county where the proms are segregated??? WTF?

I can understand of the party is private and being sponsored by ignorant racist parents, but really? 2013? Segregation?

Rochelle City Councilman

Rochelle City Councilman Wayne McGuinty told WSAV-TV that the traditional segregated prom is not an accurate representation of his community.

"I think it's more of the personal opinions of those involved," McGuinty said. "I don't think there is an effort made to keep black kids out of the white prom and to keep white kids out of the black prom."

 

WTF? First off... having a "black prom" or a "white prom" is your problem lady. Making it out like its the kids fault for not wanting to go is ignorant.

Georgia. Somehow not

Georgia. Somehow not surprised. There's 5 or 6 states which would happily devolve a thousand years if they could. Georgia, Kansas, and North Carolina all immediately come to mind.
