I do not care that it’s Mississippi. I do not care that it’s a small town. This is NOT okay. You do not get to say “Only whites can do this and only blacks can do this.” You are a PUBLIC school, funded by taxpayer money. Your goal should be to encourage students, not to limit them based on the color of their skin.
I’m glad someone finally responded to this. But for how long have the people of this town been just living with these rules? Why has it taken so long for someone to say “This is wrong”?
