Separate, But Equal: The Sequel

The South's self-proclaimed transportation hub has been ordered to desegregate their schools.

Known as Mississippi's cream pitcher for its dairy farms and bordering Louisiana 80 miles north of New Orleans, Walthall County has a population of about 15,000 people that includes about 54 percent white residents and 45 percent African American residents, according to the U.S. Census.

On the plus side, I guess sending the different groups to different schools saves the townsfolk the effort in throwing private ethnic-centric proms for their kids.
