I watched a Documentary last night with Morgan freeman, it was about how in Charlotte, Mississippi they still had separate proms one for the Black students and one for the White students.
And how on April 19th 2008 they had the first integrated prom in the history of the school.
(That town also has a history of Racist things that happened, hangings, Slaves…ect)
Morgan Freeman told the Senor class that he would pay for their integrated prom
First of all I was shocked that something like that even happened!
In the year 2008 they still had separate proms.
Some White parents were Sooo upset about the prom being integrated that they held a meeting and decided to raise money to have a separate prom for their White kids.
Many of the Kids both black and white were excited to have ONE prom instead of two. But many of the White parents were still pressuring their children to attend the white prom ONLY, and some did, but others also went to the integrated prom against the parent’s wishes.
Also those parents declined to comment on camera about why they were against their children attending. (and yet some according to their children were not racist at all, they jus didn’t want their son or daughter mixing and having Niggers dancing up on them)
What are your thoughts on that?
is that wrong, or harmless?
