This family deserves the 550k and more. There was no need for a little girl to be excluded from a christmas play because of her race. This goes to tell us the even in this day and time people have not learned from our history that racism is a bad hurtful thing. Imagine the hurt they all have been through, pain some of us may not ever understand.

i agree with you. im from sea isle now in md. i never thought sea isle was prejudice, but as a youngster i always wondered i hardly ever saw a african american around there . this was something my family never talked about. this is alwful espeially when a child is involved. they will always remember this. racism is awlful.

i would never move back to sea isle. too many snobs and people with money who think they are better then others. family always told me the blacks didn't come there cause they were poor and lived in woodbine. what lies. then i worked with someone from jersey in virginia and she told me that the town was racist. i was so surprised. and here i went there for a visit . had i known we would never have come back there.

I think sea isle is a snobbish town. people there are all about money most of them. i am glad i am not there anymore and would never ever go back there again. i have no reason to go back there as i have no family there anymore.
