Would have sucked hard to be Asian in Nettleton.

BTW, I'm originally from a county near there. When I was in junior high, there was a quota system for the cheerleading squad. There had to be equal amounts of blacks and whites to make it.

Also, I know it looks badly, and the fact that it's Mississippi will just have some folks all bent out of shape, but really, when the policy was outlined way back when, it was to ensure the black kids got a chance. The student body is 70-something percent white, so it's really not like they were saying, "whites only"... because some years it was "blacks only".

However, I am glad it's no longer in effect. I think any kind of affirmative action these days is outdated.
