These Prom Proposals Are Getting More And More Extreme Every Year

Trying to find a date to prom and then having work up the courage to ask that person to prom, can be the hardest, most nerve-wracking thing ever…especially when you have to match up against some super extravagant prom proposals. If you thought a single flower and note was enough to ask someone to prom, think again…

It’s prom season once again, and these promposals seem to be getting more and more extreme every year.


He really did just show up to his school on a horse…with a live band following him. Horse and carriage? More like horse and banda.

Seriously, these guys are setting the bar super high.

These teenagers are taking romance to a whole other level.

But just in case some balloons and flowers weren’t enough, here’s an added little something.

This Teen Highlighted The N-Word In His Promposal And Is Defending It As Slang, Not A Racial Slur

This Teen Highlighted The N-Word In His Promposal And Is Defending It As Slang, Not A Racial Slur

Prom season is here and videos of cute “promposals” should be making the rounds on social media. Instead, we’ve been seeing a truly disturbing trend: the racist promposal.

Sadly, though not surprisingly, these promposals have been popping up all over the country. The most recent case is brought to you by students at Palos Verdes High School, in a community just south of Los Angeles.

A photo circulating on social media shows two white teens standing together and laughing while holding a sign that says “Bianca you are racist but I would give anything for you to go with me to prom.”

The N-word appears to be highlighted in bold letters throughout the sign.

The racist message is, rightfully so, prompting outrage in the community and online.

A mother of a Palos Verdes student posted the photo on Twitter and asked people to call the school and “condemn this horrific sensibility racism and ignorance.” It is safe to say that people who saw the image and the mother’s call to action followed through.

Many are urging the school to take swift action and not allow the students to participate in the upcoming prom.

Palos Verdes High School will host its prom on Saturday with the theme “Wish Upon a Star.” Hopefully, they’ll all be wishing for this racist BS to go away.

For its part, the school immediately issued a response.

In it, the school says, “We were made aware today by some of our students of an invitation that incorporated a slang term for African-Americans.” It goes on to say “We have been in touch with the identified students and their families to inform them that we are forming a response and we anticipate severe consequences.”

But people are not having it.

Instead of calling the N-word what it is, a malicious racial slur, the school’s principal described it as a slang word used for the African-American community.

TThe school has released an additional statement.

In a second written response, school principal Allan Tyner said, “Today I will be meeting with all students, class by class. We will review appropriate behavior and how the use of hurtful racial slurs like the one used on this recent picture posted on social media is unacceptable. I know that this one unfortunate event does not represent us as a community.”

“Racist words and racist acts have no place in our school community,” Tyner continued. “We will rise above this, learn from this, and be a better school community because of it.”

According to numerous sources on Twitter, one of the students identified in the photo has sent several other students DMs with an apology.

In the alleged DMs, the student says “I owe an apology for the very offensive post and poster that has been going around. Let me start off by saying that I was not raised to be racist, and I’m not racist against any ethnicity. Being racist (even as a joke) is not who I am and it’s wrong, I am sincerely sorry.”

I don’t know about you but it sucks that these racist promposals are stealing the headlines from amazingly sweet ones like this.

Sweet and simple. OMG. My heart is melting all over the place for this sweet and loving couple.

Or this one where the guy got her an entire mariachi.

Now this is how you nail a promposal! I wish someone would have taken that much effort when asking me to prom.

Then there’s this guy who took his girl to a light festival to pop the question.

I mean, isn’t this just sooooo romantic?! Not to mention it is a way to ask someone to prom without being racist.

Or these two who made the entire school cry!

I’m not crying, you’re crying! But, I am also crying. Why are people so damn romantic? Why can’t more people be romantic instead of racist? We can do better, everyone.
