just out of curiosity, if the government, in any shape, at any level is not discriminating, is not favoring, is not interfering with one group or the other -- what business is it of anyone's other than the parties involved and the ones paying for these proms whether it is segregated or integrated?
People always cry about freedom but it always seems they want to impose their will, what "they think is right" on other people..
Your continued attempts to pretend that is the same thing as the blind hatred that motivates segregated proms is simply bull****. Oppressed members of a minority group banding together for support is not motivated by racism, its the sad result of being on the receiving end of it.
