Racist Prom Proposal Sign Has Become An Awful Trend And Students Are Now Facing The Consequences: Report
Last week a student at a Florida student asked his girlfriend to prom using a racist sign that read: “If I was black I’d be picking cotton, but I’m white so I’m picking you 4 prom.”
As shameful as it is, other teens started a trend using the same racist sign. A new report by NBC 5 claimed that a student at Francis Howell High School in Missouri asked a girl to prom using the same sign.
But his actions did not go unnoticed. The school is now investigating the students who are following this racist trend.
In a statement, the school said: “The incident is being investigated, and while the District cannot share information about the discipline of specific students, any student that uses demeaning speech and language will receive consequences in accordance with the FHSD Code of Student Conduct.”
