ok guys i have a question but first some back story this is a little mature. Years ago when i was in high school in the 10th grade a girl in my class was elected class maid for the homecoming. She and i were good friends and i had asked if i asked her could i be her escort. she said yes HOWEVER she was African American. The school did not want a black/white couple to be in the homecoming. i was mad but it was really no big deal i was not going to make a big deal about it till now. several years later the same high school did the elections for homecoming and the queen was a 17 year old girl with a baby. a teen mom. normally you hear about abstinence and prevention of teen moms. i guess what im trying to get at is it ok to discriminate against black/white couples and promote teen moms or am i looking at this wrong? (i hope this was clear)

Not at all. I see where you're coming from. It's amazing that people will discriminate others for any reason. Even moreso when hypocrisy is involved. Personally, I don't think either one is right. No one should ever be denied because of status, race, religion, or anything in particular. I believe everyone is created equal and should be given a chance before they can truly be judged. I hope my response sheds light to your concern.

i guess what really makes me the most mad is that the school has a class that does the normal spill 'no sex till after marriage' and 'practice safe sex' and im all for having a baby and all but not till your married or at the very least when your out of school.

As Luis said, no, it's most definitely not ok to discriminate against black/white couples. What it came down to was someone higher up in your school's committee didn't approve of interracial couples (even if you were just going as friends) and decided to squash it. The teen mom being elected wasn't the issue, clearly, but the fact that it was even mentioned that they didn't want a black and white couple going at all. Unfortunately, you two were the problem.

Some people are still stuck in the 19th century and can't over the fact that Loving v. Virginia happened. Whatever.

Bigotry does not need justification nor should it be defended. While teen mothers should be supported and I suppose it's commendable she made the cut, the fact you were tossed out of the loop entirely is disgusting. I'm beginning to have an intense dislike of my fellow human beings...

I agree with Ever and Blitz wholeheartedly here. This is an absolute disgrace. I can't believe something like this could happen in this day and age. Outrageous. I commend you for doing what you did Jody, it clearly wasn't easy. This type of behavior should be targeted and snuffed out...there's no place for that type of mentality in this country anymore. I wish someone would expose the committee member(s) who opposed you going so they could be chastised for their backwards beliefs.

Kudos to you and the girl Jody, truly.
