ROCHELLE, GA -
They share the classroom, the football field, and the baseball diamond, but the school is still holding on to a vestige of this country's darkest days of segregation.

"We're embarrassed, it's embarrassing," exclaimed Stephanie Sinnot, Mareshia Rucker, Quanesha Wallace, and Keela Bloodworth.

The group has been friends since the 4th grade and they say they do everything together, except prom night.

"We are all friends," said Stephanie. "That's just kind of not right that we can't go to prom together."

Stephanie and Keela are white and Mareshia and Quanesha are black. They're seniors at Wilcox County High School, a school that has never held an integrated prom during its existence.

"There's a white prom and there's an integrated prom," said Keela.

The rule is strictly enforced, any race other than Caucasian wouldn't dare to attend the white prom.

"They would probably have the police come out there and escort them off the premises," said Keela.

That was the case just last year as a biracial student was turned away by police. It's been that way for as long as anyone can remember and it doesn't stop at prom. Homecoming is also segregated. Normally, there would be a court for each race, but for the first time the school decided to elect only one homecoming court, Quanesha won. But there were still two separate dances.

Wow. A friend of mine recently moved to a small town outside of Savannah, GA for work. She is in her early 30s and black. She told me not too long ago she was driving with a friend of hers and out of no where this white guy in a pick up truck pulled along side of her car (an Accord coupe) and began yelling the N word at them. Then he tried unsuccesfully to run them off the road. I was like "WTF WHAT DID YOU DO? DID YOU CALL POLICE?" She seemed pretty nonchalant about it and said it was backwards as fug down there and that's just how it is.

But hey, racism is dead, I mean the freaking President is black right?

From what I've gathered, neither "prom" is officially sponsored &/or paid for by the school, thus they are actually private parties called "proms".

Eta: Oh fug, I misread. This is the first time they've had an integrated prom & the school is paying for neither, implying that there were two separate proms that the school was paying for.

Good for the students.

The moron sponsors of either of the other proms will hopefully be shamed into never raising money for those divided proms again.

Do most school systems in the US, "farm" out the school proms like this? Why are some schools able to have functions on school property and others do not? Are all proms funded differently? Just not adept to school prom funding info.
