    Why the Governor of a State would be asked about a local issue. It's not a state issue. There was no answer he could have given that would not have pissed some people off. He should have just refused to answer the question.
    There is more than answer to this question, in America, in 2013?

    That is flipping sad!

    I can understand folks bellyaching over him saying " no comment"... but it seem to me that you are saying the government should have a say in who you allow to attend your privately hosted party.

    A mixed couple going to a prom should not be news anywhere today.
    what are you talking about?.. there are no laws at work here..... these proms are privately hosted parties.....sheesh!

    damn, everybody is treating proms like it's a government entitlement or something.... it's a party... sometime hosted by the school district, sometimes not....but it's still just a party where kids get all awkward and uptight in ugly clothes.

    segregation has never been an issue..... legal segregation has always been the issue.

    folks tend to self segregate anyways( based on many things, sex, race, economic class, etc)... it's not an evil thing.

    If I am racist trash who bans black people from my party, it is entirely appropriate for the governor to exercise his right to free speech and condemn my immoral actions.

    Racism is evil regardless of if done privately or by the government. Its not inherently illegal in certain circumstances, but it is always wrong.

    I live 30 miles south of Atlanta and probably 100 or so miles north of Wilcox. This site is the only place I have heard of this.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    what if you ban white people from your party?.... are you still racist trash?... or are you just the congressional black caucus?
