I spent 7 months of fun in southern mississippi in 91 while in the air force (keesler afb), and the locals down there were bigoted against color, and military, since you don't get much whiter then me (and male). We had to be back at certain times or say where we were going with phone numbers if staying out overnight.

I know this was an issue when I was in high school in the late 80's, and it was brought up from time to time, but prom was never canceled over it.

They are discovering the power of the internet, and just how fast information travels in this day and age. You can't do something that stupid, and get away with it anymore.

Since this is a public school, it falls under local, state, and federal laws. Also if anything happens to her, the school is going to be the first one sued, and they will be sued hard. There is going to be millions that will have to be payed out, but only as long as the case gets out of the local courts.
