A recent promposal involving students at Kane County's Central High School has been criticized as racist, ABC 7 Chicago reported.
A photo of the promposal that's being shared on social media shows two teens holding a sign that reads, "If I was Black, I'd be picking cotton, but I'm white, so I'm picking you. Prom?"
"The derogatory, racist remarks in the post do not reflect Central 301's values or our standards of appropriate and acceptable student conduct," said Superintendent Todd E. Stirn in a statement. "Actions that go against our values of inclusion and respect have no place in our schools or our school-sponsored activities."
Only 2% of students at Central High School are Black, according to the Illinois Report Card. The school is 62% white, 19% Hispanic and 13% Asian.
