I was shocked to see this. I know that many areas of the USA are amazingly backwards (if not completly lost) but what the ? is this.... Crazy... I am just stunned. Its like I found some 1950 newspaper clipping or something. Sorry, just an unaware Canadian I guess who lives about 75 years in the future relative to Georgia ....

There are lots of unfair acts performed here in Turner County concerning Blacks and Whites. The ideal that there are still 2 seperate proms held in here is just 1 unfair act. If you really want to know some stuff visit the good life town and talk to some people that won't lie. The town is Very Very backwards. The school system itself is a mess. This town believes in keeping the Blacks in a place and never allowing their head to be lifted. There are many talented, educated, dedicated, Blacks here that are never given a chance to be anything but the underdog. People that are qualified for many high positions that are told they should recieve higher education and are denied certain jobs that are given to the white person with only a high school education. Now this is the mess.

I can relate to the comment where this city is backwards. I was born there and was brought to Miami when I was 4 or 5 years old. Actually I'll be going home for Memorial Day. But when I exit 82 or 83 and scroll through uptown, it's looks the as same as it did 20 years ago. I'm 36 years old and can't believe my hometown hasn't developed as it should. I know that I would be one of those who had to leave for better paying jobs or simply go to the military. I only know of the candy factory (CentraPack)and the Peanut factory where my uncle works. That's it. When I'm there, I have to go Tifton and Cordele to shop or go to a nice resturant. Granted I love Keith-a Que food. I'm part of the Walker family and am proud of my history. So congrats to Turner High for starting [hopfully] a new trend.

Nice to see there are still some Whites holding on to thier their culture and traditions. Funny how negros are allowed to have their own networks/magazines/caucuses/gr eivance lobbies yet they and their liberal White enablers get so bent out of shape when White kids want to have just one little event of their own. They might want to get used to it as more and more Whites are rousing themselves from their self-imposed politically correct slumber these days.

Their culture is American, America is a great free cpuntry based on the freedom of all, you go somwhere else for repression because the U.S. won'y have it.
