2-4-6-8, Go To Prom And Integrate

Anyone else surprised that it's 2007 and some American parents still organize separate proms for black teens and white teens? The black kids choose a prom queen and the white kids choose a prom queen. I suppose I shouldn't be shocked, because Ruby Bridges is only ten years older than me. One high school in Georgia, though, took a risk this year, with 213 seniors voting to have just one official prom, and it sounds like it was a success.
