    Georgia Community Has First Integrated Prom

    I am shocked that there are still communities in the South that practice "unofficial" segregated proms that alienate students from each other on the basis of skin color in their schools. After 40 years in the making, members of the community finally stepped up for an integrated prom.

    This is why we still have a long way to go in this country. We are not all equal already. We have to continue to push for policies that promote diversity and affirm equal representation in all aspects of our society.

    Georgia’s 8th Congressional District is strongly Republican (Cook PVI: R+15) and is situated in the south-central portion of the state between Macon and Tifton.

    Indeed we do. It should be noted there is a chance the Georgia seat could end up in Democratic hands next year if they nominate a far right tea party whack job for it but the frontrunner for the Democrats,John Barrow is just as bigoted on gay rights as they are.
    He was one of the 34 Democrats to vote for the Federal Marriage Amendment the last time it was up in 06, and has also voted against hate crime laws and for laws that allow "religious beliefs" to discriminate against the LGBT community,so he is certainly no ally of ours.

    I am not surprised. As a child I spent several years (early '50's) in North Georgia; for years my family maintained a summer house there. When I was a kid and walking down the street a Black addressed me as Master (first name) and stepped off the sidewalk; the town built a road to divert Blacks (and Jews) from coming through the town proper; I just found out within the last 2 years my grandfather and uncle were in the Klan.

    The South is coming out of a deep hole, but is not yet to the top.

    It is just so hard to imagine this has gone on so long. It sends the wrong message to the rest of the world.

    The problem is you have the cities like Atlanta and then the rural areas that make up much of Georgia. And in those areas,they still think blacks and whites should be seperate,have no problem using racial slurs and are proudly anti-gay.

    I couldn't belive this article when I had read it earlier today. Its crazy, but at least the students are working to try to get away from the segregated proms. Granted its many years behind when it should be.
