While we hear stories about some of the youth of today that makes us sad or angry, there is a group of students in the south that are so smart and forward thinking....they make you proud even tho you don't know them.
Believe it or not, a small town in the south still had separate proms for whites and coloreds. Yep. Check the year....and it was still happening! The school said it was never actually stated that way, it was more of an "unwritten rule" that people of color didn't attend the white prom and they also claimed that they were "private parties" so they didn't really have any say.
The kids tho this year decided to change it. They started a page on Facebook to have a prom for everyone this year instead. Thru FB, they were able to raise the money and the support to do it!!! The page even gained 30 thousand likes by prom time....far more then the people in the town.
I just think its cool that the next generation there isn't willing to just keep things status quo...and instead are ready to right the wrongs that they see happening.
