Nettleton, Mississippi...REALLY??

Browsing through the news on msnbc.com while the kids nap, I came across this story about a middle school in mississippi who has segregated its elected class positions by race. Unbelievable! Seriously, what are the superintendent, principal and teachers of this school thinking??  And what does this say for the town of Nettleton, Mississippi?  I also wonder if the town is only populated with "black" and "white" students...what about hispanics, asians and filipinos?  It's bad enough they have segregated class positions by race, but to outcast children of other races, those that don't fit under the "black or white" catagories, is just as unthinkable. If my child ever brought home anything like this from their school, not only would I pull them out of the school, but I would leave the town all together!  It is hard to imagine that there are people out there that look at this and see no wrong.  It is 2010 people!  It is time to wake up and pop this little bubble you are living in.

  1. So I guess I'd be homeschooling my little half-breeds if I lived there.
