Not so strange if you know Itawamba County or Mississippi.
The real reason the prom was canceled is, Itawamba is a poor county and can not afford to fight someone as wealthy and powerful as the ACLU. This rural school had another problem back in the winter when a trasfer student from Illinois decided he wanted to be a girl and showed up for class looking like a cheap whore. Another ACLU moment. Think Rural Mississippi and guess the reaction. My guess is the prom will go on but not be sponsored by the school district. A private prom sponsored by some business or group of the normal folks for the normal kids.
I did forget to mention that. Yes, it’s very poor up there.
You see things that break your heart it’s so poor.
Still, it’s their tradition and I agree, there will be a prom, just not one that’s school sponsored.
