IT IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING TO ME THAT ANY SCHOOL, ANYWHERE IN OUR COUNTRY WOULD ALLOW A SEGREGATED PROM. THUS, ARE WE AT ALL SUPRISED BY THE NATIONWIDE REACTION TO THE DON IMUS INCIDENT? THE RACIAL LINES ARE SO CLEARLY DRAWN IN THIS COUNTRY IT SOMETIMES AMAZES ME WE ARE ABLE TO CO-EXIST. IN THIS CASE, DIVISIVENESS APPEARS TO BE A SCHOOL RULE. I APPLAUD THE STUDENTS OF TURNER HIGH FOR THEIR STRENGTH, COURAGE AND FORTITUDE.
WHAT WILL IT TAKE FOR US TO COME TOGETHER AS ONE NATION?
WE ARE SO CAUGHT UP IN OUR OWN GREEDY, SELFISH, MICRO-MANAGED LIVES THAT WE ARE BLIND TO THE LARGER PICTURE.
HAVE WE BECOME A SOCIETY SO POISONED AND POLLUTED, SO LAZY THAT BASIC HUMAN DECENCIES ARE OBSOLETE AND WORSE, ACCEPTED??
RESPECT FOR ONE ANOTHER SHOULD BE THE MOST BASIC OF PRINCIPLES IN LIFE, YET SO MANY OF US REGARD IT AS AN ENIGMA THAT COULD NEVER BE UNDERSTOOD OR OBTAINED.
