“I am black and relatively comfortable, retired. I agree with Adam. Crack has destroyed families 30 years in the black communities. There is no male head of household. Our men leave us pregnant and alone to fend for ourselves and our children. Or they are in jail. No respect in household causes breakdowns, no discipline or structure for the children. Sneakers and Jeans are more important than education or homework. It's hard for a mother to work, if she does, come home cook and discipline a child. Children who have no fear of parents do what hell they want! They don't say "I can't do that! My parents would kill me"! The monies they do get from working under the table or welfare is not enough to put in a checking account or savings account. These families only know Check cashing stores that charge a fee. I don't see a change coming anytime soon.”
“Ok! This sounds reasonable to me! How bout just Normal Kids enjoying a Normal Prom? They are tired of Weirdos and Freaks! Let them have their own separate prom! This way all the kids are happy!”

“Whilst they are at it they can selectively pick and choose who they consider normal to attend? Nerds no thanks. Goths to freaky. Stoners too stoned.
This just sounds like the cheerleaders and the football teams prom everyone else not welcome.”

“All the kids are probably pretty much "normal". Who gets to decide who is a freak?”
Thankgoodness on Feb 12, 2013 at 01:21:18
“I think you are the weirdo dude.”

“LGBT kids aren't weirdos and freaks. Let kids be kids; the adults are the ones starting shite.”

“Gay children are not wierdos and freaks, but you sound like a real bully.”

“A straight prom, lesbian prom, gay prom, transgender prom, evolutionist prom, creationist prom, Catholic prom, Jewish prom, pentacostal prom, atheist prom, nerd prom, jock prom, academic list prom, nearly-brain dead student prom, band and choir prom - each separately funded by the state.”

“Because then we would have to install seperate drinking fountains again and that's just not economically feasible in this economy you BIGOTTED ignoramous!”
Victor Sweatman on Feb 12, 2013 at 00:59:40
“Yeah, and of course black kids and asians and latinos will be banned also, right?
I mean if you're going to be bigots, don't be mamby pamby about it, go all out, Skippy”
Michael Fitz-Gibbon on Feb 12, 2013 at 00:58:45
“How about we have a prom only for people with above average IQs. That would certainly keep a lot of people like you.”
iamciril on Feb 12, 2013 at 00:56:30
“"Weirdos and Freak" is a good description of MANY straight students, according to the more mainstream high schoolers.
I would have been classified as a weirdo to some.
So might as well ban anybody not meeting the status quo - whatever that is in Indiana.”
Al Aquino on Feb 12, 2013 at 00:55:42
“Yup and how bout we kick out emo and goth kids while we are at it or ones that don't fit what we see as a social norm. I don't like geeks either so they should be left out. Hey lets not let in kids we think are ugly either and the poor because they can't dress as well oh and finally lets leave out the minority groups especially the ones with accents because you now by definition they aren't normal....and only normal kids allowed yup very reasonable.”
Rob Devitt on Feb 12, 2013 at 00:53:45
“Praying to and worshiping a non existent entity, hating people based on a 2000 year old fictional book is a bit weird to me too but i believe the gay kids are happy to let the freaks join in with the prom. they are remarkably tolerant.”

“50 years ago people were saying the same thing about black students, you raging bigot.”
“That was wonderful and very moving! I have never heard of seen such compassion in a New York Hosp. I know, i have lost 4 family members in the last 10 years. Been to a lot of Hospitals, emergency rooms etc. They are so overwhelmed with patients, the medical staff doesn't have time to breath. This shows there is hope!
New York Government; STOP CLOSING HOSPITALS!”
“Knew this guy when he lived in Clinton Hill area of B'klyn. I wud see him on stoop across st. from my daughters 1st apt. He had Dreds. What happen to this young man who "made it big"? Man get yourself together! You were one of the "Lucky Ones"!
Don't be a waste to all of us!”
InedaName on Nov 13, 2012 at 18:34:01
“I saw him once on 18th Street about 20 years ago when he had the dreads. I had never seen such a beautiful man in all my life.”
“How bout a policy on pregnant girls sittin' next to our daughters - making our kids thinking its ok to get pregnant you can still hang out with your friends with that big stomach!! put'em in a separate school! Focus on something more important then their hair!!”
Lombard1006 on May 25, 2012 at 00:19:46
“How about rule for the boys who impregnate the girls who sit next to your daughters? Put them in a separate school and teach them to control themselves.”

“This surely is a hot topic, we black americans hold light skinned people as being 1st on the totem pole. Most of us who are dark-skinned have a hard time in this world and our own race world. We wish we were light skinned with nice hair because then you are considered beautiful or attractive. If you knew how we really felt aside from all the bull we talk about it not making a difference, we all know it really, really does. This is so hurtful to us dark skinned people because, others see your black face first, and judge you right away. They don't care to know you! You are dark and therefore not worth anything! This will never ever change no matter what we say or do! So if bleaching your skin white will help you be the real person you want to be, then this will continue, no matter what!”
ChoppyBob on Feb 18, 2013 at 18:02:08
“people who would judge you negatively based on having darker skin are not worth your time.
at the same time, light-skinned people did not create this problem.
you have some internal work to do, if you "wish you were lightskinned with "nice hair."" It's not fair, but you have to be tougher to deal with this.”

“We? I don't. I love, love, love my skin tone and I the middle finger to those who don't! The spectrum of skin hues in the Black diaspora is beautiful and I love it. I never gave much of my time to anyone who decided they didn't want to be bothered with me based on my complexion whether they were Black or nonBlack. Those who have issues with people because of skin tone are not worthy of my time.”
“THIS SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED BECAUSE OF THE DESTRUCTION HERE IN NY. WHAT WERE THEY GOING TO DO RUN THRU SHATTERED NEIGHBORHOODS AND JUMP OVER TREES AND PERSONAL ITEMS OF RESIDENTS????? STUPID, GREEDY IDEA!”

“Have no fear! You're taxes will be raised accordingly to match (& then some) the money lost by not having the NYC Marathon.”
