    OK, so when I read it was an integrated prom and my first thought was it was including both straight and gay students. Well imagine my shock when I realized it meant they were including whites and African Americans. I consider myself fairly well informed and although I don’t live in the US I am right next door in Canada and I can’t believe segregation still openly occurs. I have always thought that some people are racists and will never change but I am shocked that a school gets away whit this. Nothing for these people to be proud of that’s for sure. Hopefully some day soon they will come out of the early 20th century and join us here in the 21st. I hope no one goes to the segregated prom.
