HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU'RE A REDNECK?

I'm sure you've already read or heard about this one -- the "whites-only" prom in Georgia (what a surprise).

What I don't understand is why people jumped ugly with someone like Bill O'Reilly for reporting on it, calling it a "private" event and suggesting reporting on it was "anti-South". Wake-up call:

a. a school prom is not a "private" event, no matter how you package it, and
b. saying reporting on it is "anti-South" assumes that "separate but equal" is still the modus operandi in the South.

I'm sorry, but this merits a "flag on the play".
