THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMENTS ABOUT 3-G. SUSAN!
OBVIOUSLY, WHAT IS NEEDED IS FOR THOSE WHO DISAGREE WITH REVERSE-RACIST BLACKS TO TAKE A LESSON FROM BLACKS THEMSELVES: JUST BOYCOT THE ENTIRE PROM!
THOSE REVERSE RACISTS WHO PROMOTE IT SHOULD BE THE ONES WHO ARE LEGALLY REQUIRED TO PAY FOR IT!
I bother you dont I? Good! Be bothered...Join the crowd. We all like conflict and confusion! And apparently you do to because you are always poppin' that mouth off....

welcome aboard, chump!

I was born in Ashburn in 1970. I am an African American male. My mom moved to Miami in the mid 70's. I visit home (Ashburn) every now and then. I can say that when I am home, I do see a lot of the old ways such as ethnic groups keeping their distants from each other. Miami is a very diverse city where theres Haitians, Cubans, Blacks, and all other race and I've learned to deal with different cultures. So in turn, I liked the idea that the prom will be as one and hope that everyone can come to realize that this is a nation of diversity and we need to live amongst each other. Also, I read this acticle in the Miami Herald (04/15/07) I great seeing positive things happening from home.

Congratulations to the students of Ashburn, who are clearly more intelligent and rational than their parents, teachers and community leaders who would allow such an idiotic and ignorant tradition to continue for so long. Now all of the students who have noses, ears, eyes, hair, fingers, toes and skin can attend an event together...yeah color doesn't need to be said, these students, like all humans are the same. It's about time is an understatment.

Leave it to the "black" to do something right for a change. The only problem, it was probably a "black" like Rev Al or Jessie that didn't won't to be with the whites in the first place because the hate "Y-T" so much. YOU nappy headed people amaze me every day with your worse reverse racism.

I wanna know who this real World person is cause in every forum they always got something racist to say probably some asshole who can only talk out through a damn forum too scared to say this shit outloud if u have a problem with black people then how about u go do something with yourself. Its always amazes me that white people dont like us but yall dumb asses brought us over here dont like it when you see a black person that drives a car better than you or actually has a job cause u dont seem to have one cause the only thing u can do is post on forums all day, but that is always has been funny to me that the same people that you tried to make your slaves over hundreds of years ago are actually doing better than yall. Funny how stuff changes huh The Real world.

What is going on at this school???
what planet did the administaror come from?
we are in a point in time where we all are to be considered as ONE!
what happened to the word "DISCRIMINANTION"? I am very proud of the student who took his stand and said, "It's time for a change". He has shown more courage, intelligence, and value then any who lives in this community!
You know it is mighty sad to know that a child has to stand up for himself and his peers because of a community, a city, a county, and even our state can not stand up for these children!
And every one wants to know, "What's wrong with this generation?"
I ask you, What's wrong with this generation, is it because we have failed our children buy not living as an example, or is it because of the mighty dollar every turns their heads and let things like this just slide on by?

Who in the world came up with this stupid idea? Whoever it is they seem like real idiots and people who don't have anything else to do with their own life. how long has segregation been over with? I mean really if you want something to do, read a book, do something that is CONSTRUCTIVE! It's about time someone stood up and put a stop to that! I applaud the student body president!

GGG, you are a racist whether you will admit it or not. You hate me because of my views. Funny thing is, I don't even dislike you, I just think you are a reverse racist dumba$$. I would still help you if I have the chance. I don't judge you on your skin color, I simply judge you because of your ignorance.
Everyone has some degree of hate, but im not racist. I hate when you try to water down issues that face the black community. I hate when you and susan act as though only blacks do wrong. I hate your thought processes because in this society we dont have room for racist people like you. You make things difficult when it should not be. You point one finger at blacks forgetting that your other four fingers are pointing back at you. What are you doing to help, since we are such bad people? Instead of pointing a finger, get off your azz, go to the black communities and enlist to help....

Oh, you wont do that! You just sit on your but an complain...Anyone can do this....
