Debutantes need more diversity

Did anyone notice something wrong with the recently published picture of the Augusta Symphony Cotillion debutantes? Why are there no blacks, Asians, Hispanics or other ethnic groups pictured?

Surely, wealthy white people are not the only ones who like the symphony. There are a lot of doctors, attorneys, business owners and military of ethnic groups, whose daughters would meet the same qualifications as the white debutantes.

In this new century, we should be working to accept all races and be integrated in all aspects of life. As an Irish/German-American, I hope next year the Augusta Symphony will have a representation of all of Augusta's races in its cotillion picture.
