Integrated Prom

I’ve just recently heard of the first racially integrated prom at Wilcox county high school in Georgia. The idea that police officers would escort black students trying to enter the “white prom” off the premises is simply mind-boggling. I think that in this day and age, we tend to sweep segregation under the rug. We see it as a thing of the past when it is very much embedded in the american psyche. Even in commercials; how many interracial couples do you see?  It just turns my stomach, really, that we’ve come so far and yet there are still those who lag behind.
