Middle school segregates student council elections by race
By Daniel Tencer

Administrators at Nettleton Middle School in Nettleton, Miss., say they are "reviewing" their processes for student elections after a shocked parent went online to publicize the school's policy of racially segregating student council positions.
According to a school memo, obtained and uploaded to the Web by parent Brandy Springer, eighth-grade candidates for class president must be white; vice-presidential candidates must be black.
The same applies for seventh-grade students, but in the sixth grade, both the president and vice-president have to be white, and the only position open to black students is that of class reporter.
"Additionally, it is unknown how children who are not black or white would run for student government offices," notes the Smoking Gun.............

I've often heard anthro students complain about how there are no new discoveries to be made, but who'd have thought they'd find a tribe of Neanderthals running a school district in Mississippi?

there was a follow up article saying they've stopped this. they may have stopped physically because of the publicity but in their hearts i am 100% certain they don't understand why people are upset by this
