Separate But Equal Proms

Disturbing news from the Miami Herald:

LYONS, Ga. - (AP) -- A high school in South Georgia held three different proms -- one each for whites, blacks and Hispanics...

Parents and students in a few counties in Georgia still organize separate proms for whites and blacks after school systems stopped sponsoring dances, in part, because they wanted to avoid problems arising from interracial dating.

I don't know what is more disturbing, the separate proms or the fact that some people still have "problems" with interracial dating.
