Ohio Student Banned From Attending Senior Prom Over Racist Promposal Sign


An Ohio student will not be attending Clear Fork High School's senior prom after drawing outrage over his racist promposal. According to reports, the unnamed student made a sign that read, “If I was black I’d be picking cotton but I’m white so I’m picking u for prom.” The student, who attends another school in the same district as Clear Fork High School, later apologized via social media. "I'm sorry for upsetting anyone, I didn't mean it like that," he wrote. "It was just for a laugh. I'm sorry, I really am." Clear Fork Valley superintendent Janice Wyckoff told CNN, “Our school district is disappointed in this situation. Our student body should not be defined by a single act of a student who did not think his action through. This is a teachable moment for this student in particular and for all students.”
