I applaud the the senior class officers of Turner Co. HS for handling this situation in such a mature manner. They could have went about this a variety of ways but chose the method that was the least volatile & the most intelligent. After reading some of the comments on the blog, it's not the kids with the problem, it's the adults. It further supports the fact that racism is alive & well in America, existing in its most dangerous & lethal form, the covert form. The "smile in your face & stab you in the back" type of racism. I wish someone could tell me why it took this long to have an integrated prom? It's 2007, for God's sake. Does this school two football teams, the white team & the black team. This is a shame & the people in charge of this school district should be ashamed of themselves for allowing this to go on for so long. There is no justifiable reason for blatant segregation like that.
