Hamtramck High School at 3201 Roosevelt, Hamtramck, MI 48212 held a prom to accomodate their female Muslim students.
According to The Blaze, 65% of the school’s females are not able to attend "a conventional prom, where boys and girls dance together".
According to the NY Times, these girls were able to raise $2,500 mostly through bake sales to host this prom for themselves.
The mayor Karen Majewski can be heard on the Youtube video as saying:
"We talk now about having 26 languages spoken in our schools… We’re only 2.2 miles, you can walk anywhere. You don’t need to speak English. There’s a culture that understands and accepts people from all over the world."
Celebrating cultural diversity is a good thing. But bragging about not having to speak English in your city is not good public relations.
