racist promposal poster goes viral

Racist 'promposal' sign will lead to 'severe consequences' for Southern California students
The sign said "you are racist but I would give anything for you to go with me to prom," but with capitalized, bolded letters that spelled out the N-word.


Two students at a Southern California high school will face "severe consequences" after a photo of them holding up a racist "promposal" sign sparked outrage among students, former students and parents on social media.

Palos Verdes High School Principal Dr. Allan Tyner said in a statement Wednesday that he would be "meeting with all students, class by class" to "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."

The photo, which was shared by several outraged Instagram and Twitter users Tuesday, shows the two teens holding up a sign with one of the student's names, followed by "you are racIst but I would give anything for you to go with me to prom." Certain letters in the name and the sentence were capitalized and bolded to spell out the N-word.


"We have been in touch with the identified students and their families to inform them that we are forming a response and anticipate severe consequences," Tyner said in an email sent to parents Tuesday evening that was obtained by NBC News.

"I am heartened by the immediate response by our students and families on social media that make it very clear that our community does not support this behavior," Tyner added.

Thinking ahead might have paid dividends, kids. Too bad...

7. When the NAACP went to the school today the principal wouldn't even

come out and meet them. "Local NAACP president Cheyenne Bryant told CBSLA that Tyner would not meet with the group to discuss the incident.
“The principal here at Palos Verdes High School wouldn’t even come out and address us,” said Bryant."

This is outrageous. Trump is fostering an attitude of hatred in this country. It's disgusting.
