    WTF Camilla Ga?

    " If you thought government sanctioned discrimination was a thing of the past, you haven’t been to Camilla, GA. The City of Camilla is comprised of a 70% African-American population and has an elected Black mayor, but city council voted to not give him keys to his own office at City Hall. Mayor Rufus Davis talked to Rashad Richey about the city’s policies, which include Blacks not being allowed to be buried next to Whites, all White school age children in the city go to an all-White private school, and there are no African-American police officers just to name a few. Mayor Davis is now protesting his own city and will refuse to sit in council meetings until his city is desegregated..."

    It's a town of just over 5,000 residents. - Camilla mayor boycotts city meetings, city manager fights back -, South Georgia News, Weather, Sports

    Based on what I've read, I'm not sure how one would go about racially integrating a cemetery. What are you going to do? Do you dig up the bodies and rearrange them by race? For the PD (if it's 10 members that would be huge) there's not much you can do if no blacks apply. If the white kids are all going to private school that's their choice. I suppose the government could get involved and order a certain percentage of white kids to attend public school but, somehow or other, I suspect that would be unconstitutional.
