She must have got the heart from her mother!

My classmates and I walked into the cafeteria at our local high school and found something that shocked us. All the lunch tables were segregated. We began to discuss it and found that our buses, classrooms, and other places at our school were also this way. My friends and I decided to do something about it. We mixed up at our lunch table and sat with each other. The reaction of our fellow classmates was all shocking. Some thought it was nice while others shot us dirty looks. Even within our class there were students who refused to sit at the other end of the table. We found that we had a lot in common with each other and enjoyed one another’s company despite others reactions. We plan to desegregate the other places in our school as well. It’s not the 60s anymore. It’s time we do something about this race barrier. Civil Rights leaders didn’t fight for desegregation just so it could continue to happen.
