Louisiana cemetery 'sorry' after denying officer burial 'because he is black'
Louisiana cemetery 'sorry' after denying officer burial 'because he is black'

A Louisiana cemetery has apologised after refusing to bury a local black police officer because of a decades-old provision allowing only white people.
The Oaklin Springs Cemetery board met on Thursday to change its sales contract after an outcry over the "white human beings" rule.
Officer Darrell Semien's widow called it a "slap in the face" to be denied a plot "because he's black".

How the hell can this still be a thing in 2021??    Mad

What’s the problem? I mean, they said they were sorry, so that makes everything alright, doesn’t it?

Doesn’t it?

My guess is that it's an old regulation that has never been challenged.  It's probably well known in that area to be a "white" cemetary.

Agreed, black "people" should have learned long ago to stop being black.

In rural Acadiana, it would be hard to find a true "white human being," in terms of the one drop rule.  

Yes, welcome to the Dirty South.

I have never even met a white person, most people around here are various shades of pink!

Sir, I am beige.

Only pink if I get too much sun...then it's more of a red.

I'm a red merle on white, for those familiar with herding breeds.

Well, as long as they're sorry.
