White readers only
If my title sounds ridiculous and offensive, that’s because it is. I would never limit anything to “whites only” because I am not racist and diversity is important to me.
Some people obviously don’t feel the same way.
The 1973 graduates of St. Martinville, LA Senior High School received a letter that included the schedule for their impending class reunion. There was a nice reception planned, as well as a great homecoming game. Unfortunately, the “after party” at a graduate’s home would only be open to a select few.
It is for “white graduates only.” Not only that, but it’s also a potluck.
What a rip off!
It’s hard to believe something like this can happen in the 21st century. I know Louisiana is a southern state that once embraced segregation, but those days are over. It’s time to come back to reality, people.
And between you and me, I hope the after party sucks!
