Racist 'Picking Cotton' Promposal Is The Biggest Proposal Fail Of 2017

By Mark Pygas

It's prom season, and we've seen some pretty creative 'promposals' in the past few weeks. But unfortunately, every year we also see examples of totally inappropriate and offensive promposals. And this year is no different. 

Jon Aro, an alumni of Monarch High School in Coconut Creek, Florida, recently took to Twitter to share a racist Instagram post he spotted on a current student's account. “You may be picking cotton but we’re picking you to go to prom with us,” the sign, held by three girls, reads. The caption of the now deleted post read: “She said yes.” 

Yahoo confirmed the authenticity of the image, and reports that the three girls are current students at Monarch High School. When contacted, a receptionist said that the principal is “aware of” the photo.
