4.13.13 … Really? Nathan Deal stays out of integrated prom …

Wilcox Co GA, segregation, race relations, culture, teens, change, followup, GA Gov. Nathan Deal:  This is county of my grandparents … this is one of my homes.  It’s time for change.

In recent days the matter has become a cause for the left-leaning folks at Better Georgia, who have been soliciting lawmakers and others to donate — in part through a Twitter campaign. The idea of funding the prom originated with a Wilcox County African-American Republican named Melvin Everson, so it rankled some on the GOP side that Democrats were making such a fuss. Robinson called the Better Georgia campaign a “silly publicity stunt.”

Also, according to its Facebook page, the integrated prom met its fundraising goal way back on April 5. Additional donations will go to scholarships for the students.
