    Here is an article from an...interesting...source which reports on one in a "Republican" town in Miss. If I understand the school does not have a prom but lets the oarents throw it so it could be "white only". And naturally some other parents have the black prom.

    A truck driver of l folks put me onto looking this up.

    Does this really occur still? If so how common is it?

    Like in this school they report a unified prom is in the works for next year so is the trend dying out rapidly?

    Thanks for your time.

    Now that is a true statement! None the less I agree. Learning to live together is a very important lesson high school teaches us.

    So these still do go on? I have a difficult time believing that but have been disappointed before.

    Oh sorry, I did not pick up on your support of.seggregation in the earlier post.

    Yeah, since public schools have to let everyone in I thought CONSERVATIVELY and figured they had to let everyone into any event.

    Thanks for showing me how under the table support for these white only events exists even in the clean debate zone. :(

    oh really, so supporting just letting people do what they WISH is now supporting segregation..by the way I work in a public school which is really just becoming like concentration camps for little people

    Sorry to say, but yeah. The Bill of Rights and the Constitution do a fair job of setting up the protection of minorities from the majority while maintaining a republic. Darn slave states kept it from being better.

    I like how they point out they voted overwhelmingly republican. I wonder if they do the same when someone is murdered or raped in city in an area that voted overwhelmingly democrat. It would be accurate, but I doubt they do.

    The school can give a unified prom. Just not that many will attend. Like it or not the government to this day permits private parties with private invitations.
