I was born in Ahsburn in 1970. I am a African Anerican 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.

i think that its a great idea...i think that we are one class not to class that are different colors! We socialize and have the same classes together so why not have a prom together..its stupid that the white still held there separate prom just so that they could all get drunk and act stupid! thats what the after party is for people!!!!!!!!!!But what they arent sayng is that people who say they are for it arent really they are just being fake so that they can be on TV which is WRONG!

But Anyways i think that this is the best thing to happen to ashburn and i would like to see happen next year as well

That's sad that they actually still held a seperate prom. It's despicable. I can't believe this kind of crap still goes on so blatantly. This kind of thing should have been front page news this entire time until it got changed.
How disappointing. At least they're moving in the right direction.
Also. Damn glad I'm from the north as well.

The class of 1999 was the first class to have a black and white prom. Whats so sad is that parents of the white students that object fail to realize that their kids stay across the railroad tracks. Secretly dating the black race. So why not have a prom together. I really wish that alot of the white race would get out and ride across the tracks. They will be in for a real surprise. Both races are sleeping with each other. Wshats really sad is that its half of the staff at turner County High that's doing it. Iy's sad to say that some things or people will never change. May God bless every soul in the small and closed minded town of Ashburn. So Glad to be away from there.
