Must not associate blacks with cotton picking

It’s prom season, and many teenagers are going the extra mile to win the heart of their crush before popping the prom date question. Some adorable “promposal” pictures are showing up on social media.

Among the promposal images, there’s one in which three teenage girls display a sign that’s crude and racially insensitive.

Their cardboard sign, supposedly to a Black classmate, says, “You may be picking cotton, but we’re picking you to go to prom with us.”

According to, the two White girls and one Black girl holding the sign are believed to attend Monarch High School in Coconut Creek, Florida. A receptionist there told Yahoo Style that the principal knows about the photograph.

The outlet said the image is a screenshot from a now-defunct Instagram account, which was posted to Twitter by a former Monarch High School student identified as Jon Aro.


Just a poorly thought-out joke

What a load of PC crap. Only machines pick cotton today. I am tired of this faux racism that is happening these days.
