Southern School JUST Held Its 1st Prom For Both White & Black Students! Um… What Year Is It Again?!

| Filed under: InspirationSchoolGIFs

black white prom

Better late than never, we guess!

A school district in Georgia held its first integrated prom this weekend because…we’re assuming they finally realized what year it was!

Up until now, Wilcox County High School in Rochelle did not hold a prom for their students but instead allowed parents to sponsor segregated, invite-only events.


It wasn’t until last year when kids of all colors began demanding a prom for EVERYONE! And they got one, when students organized their own prom that wasn’t officially held by their school.

This year however, school administrators learned something from these teens and organized the event that allowed any and all students, no matter what their race, to attend!

As happy of an ending as this might sound, one student said some teachers weren’t so open to the idea of black students and white students going to prom together!

Mareshia Rucker explained:

"I'm absolutely sure that there are teachers that are still in the system right now that are at my school and they still don't want an integrated prom.”

Well guess what, they can go suck an egg because the Wilcox County High prom went off without a hitch!

Congratz kids on teaching your teachers a lesson on getting with the times!

    Good for them! It's sad when the kids have to teach the adults.

    There are more people shopping in my local Walmart right now than there are residents in Rochelle. They have dueling banjos players at the city limit sign.

    Its 2014 in america. Today, white males with black wives currently have one of the lowest divorce rates of most couples in america. Certainly lower than than other interracial relationships. While not a very wealthy union (according to research), A white male with a black wife is almost 45% less likely to divorce than a white male with a white wife. Its 2014. Today, white males with asian wives are now one of the wealthiest most educated pairings in america and are producing more college grad children per capita than everybody but asian/asian couples (I have not researched south east asian american statistics much).
    Its 2014, White males now produce more interracial marriages than any other human in the world per capita. Its nice that this town has mixed. Now its time to end the concept of gender segregated schools. No more "boys schools" or "girls schools" (nothing personal, Oprah or catholic church).

    Up here in northern Canada the natives have their own prom that they ban whites from going to. But I guess because it isn't the white people doing the discriminating it isn't racist in your book.
