its time to get over it, why does anyone care if an interracial couple are together, I saw in a magazine today that places in Georgia and Mississippi have a black and a white prom, 2 proms for 2 colors. I dont get why people still allow this.

This stuff occurs because people are old-fashioned. They still live in their traditional environment. Also it happens because they are not diversed. Everyone should be with whoever they want.

Doesn't surprise me about St. Louis. Like one of the comments on that article said, it is a city that is still polarized and the history of that area on those terms seem to be on that track.

Again, I'm not surprised about this. There is a lot about our country that we thought was gone, but if people only knew. I was reading about neo-slavery in a magazine out of Rochester and how this woman didn't get out of it until 1962 in Mississippi. You still had people in a similar type of life where my father was from in the Delta and I'm talking about the early 1990's. Heck, I bet people don't know that Mississippi didn't ratify the amendment for slavery until 1995. Kentucky didn't do it until 1976. So, when I see that some southern school systems still have Black and White prom King and Queens or even proms, it does not surprise me at all and such people think it is alright. It reminds me of a saying supposedly by Harriet Tubman that said, “I freed a thousand slaves I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.”

It's just so weird to me how so many people get disturbed by others personal lives, even when you don't even know them! How would this effect me, it doesn't, so why should I care who they are kissing????

Let's not be naive here. You could swap St. Louis with EVERY OTHER MAJOR CITY in America and have the same thing happen. It is complete lunacy to suggest this is reflective of STL and STL alone. This can happen in Southern California, it can happen in Chicago, it can happen in NYC. To think otherwise is sheer ignorance.

y'all, I said it before, it was published in the St Louis Post-Dispatch, which is a bricks and morter paper, and fairly liberal at that. STLToday is the online outlet, everything that is in the actual paper is put on the site.
STL has always had severe racial problems, I am sorry to say, worse than a lot of other cities.

I understand this, but can we be honest about St. Louis being a polarized city with a long history too? That's all I was saying and I wouldn't be surprised about other cities either, but there is a history there.

In GA, this was done by mutual agreement of the kids; they could not agree on the music format, so they agreed to hold separate proms and offer more 'urban' music at one and a more pop format at the other. No one was 'locked out' of either prom.
Just thought you might like the facts, which were twisted beyond recognition by Bill O'Reilly.
