In the Sunday’s New York Times Magazine is piece on the segregated high school proms in Montgomery County, down in southeast Georgia.
It ends with this painful paragraph:
In the meantime, a girl named Angel checked her cellphone to see if any of the white kids had texted from inside their prom. They hadn’t. Angel shrugged. “I really don’t understand,” she said. “Because I’m thinking that these people love me and I love them, but I don’t know. Tonight’s a different story.”
