Wait. This is still a problem? Hell even I didn`t think it was weird the first time I saw an interracial couple back in the 80`s.

I don`t think integration is a problem anymore. I mean, it seems to be the thing to find a guy from any race other than your own to be the baby daddy. White to black, black to Asian, Asian to white. Every combination except with Hispanics....let`s not be crazy.

"Part of living in the South is you don`t see too many white and black kids getting together after school to go out and have fun," says Peavy. "You don`t see blacks and whites at each other`s houses too often."

This insane County does not represent the South and it is definitely NOT part of the norm down here. I was born and raised in Tennessee and I have never heard of separate proms for, " white, black, and Hispanic students". WTH?!

tl;dr version = yes, segregation exists today, even among the highly educated. No, it is not necessarily white people trying to exclude black people.

As crazy as this sounds, at my college, there was a very powerful student group called ABS = Association of Black Students. Technically, any student of any race was free to join, so it wasn`t discriminatory. But, since this group was so influential, they basically hand-picked the student body president every year. We people who did not belong to any politically active groups would vote for their nominee because we genuinely thought he or she was a great guy or gal, but basically, whoever the ABS nominated would be student body president every year by an overwhelming majority of the vote.

Here`s the sad thing: I had a good friend from Ethiopia and people from ABS would ask him to come to the ABS meetings because they were campaigning. He`d say "I`m not in ABS" and they would say (I am NOT making this up) "Yes, you is. You`s black." (These are people at an Ivy-League level college and were speaking perfectly before that.)

Why not call it "Dress Your Daughter Like A Ho Night"?
There are age appropriate dresses. I didn`t see any in this article, but there are some. I`m lucky I had a son, if I`d had a daughter she`d really hate me for the limits I`d have imposed on her wardrobe. With the boy I just had to make him pull his pants up.

Luckily, countries with minimal diversity will get to look down on us from their ivory towers of whiteness.

There really isn`t. Obviously in a country of 310 million you will find something of everything.
