    Graduates from the St. Martinville, La., Senior High School Class of 1973 decided that after nearly 40 years, they would stop holding segregated class reunions, but a letter announcing the change included an after party for “white graduates only.”

    Michael Kreamer, who is the principal of the Louisiana school, said the letter was brought to his attention on Friday morning.

    “It’s disappointing to see something like this,” he said. “The school was really not involved at all in it.”

    On Sept. 21, a reception will be held at the school, followed by the homecoming football game, which the letter notes all graduates are welcome to attend.

    After the game, “white graduates only” are invited to a classmate’s home and are encouraged to bring a “food dish to share.”

    None issue. Everyone knows that around the world at any given moment parties or events are being thrown where the organisers have deliberately avoided inviting other races or actively made them unwelcome.

    Blacks can have their own party if they want to.

    This is so meaningless. So what. It's a private party, they can limit it to anyone they want.

    the school i went to had a normal demographic of about 80% white and 20% other.

    Our class president, in 1973, was black. I don't think any of our reunions excluded anyone.

    We just took it for granted they were all our classmates. Period.

    "The school was not involved". That's all you need to know.

    Americans have Freedom of Association meaning they can hang out with whomever they want whenever they want.
