Promposal to Black Girl Uses Fried Chicken References and We. Can’t. Even.

We’re all about the whole promposal thing (and if you haven’t seen our fave from last year, go watch it now — it. is. life.), but we had to do a double-take when we saw an IG photo of a recent promposal from a white boy to a Black girl.

In the photo, they’re both wearing Kentucky Fried Chicken crowns, the guy is wearing a “Now We’re Cookin'” shirt, and the girl is holding the promposal sign that says, “I Prefer Dark Meat. Prom?” Take a look:

If we’re being all the way 100, we can’t help but see that promposal as borderline racist — with its fried chicken references and what not. Like, for real, for real? It’s not cute or funny and someone needs to drop some serious knowledge on dude.

What do you think about the photo? Would a promposal like that make you feel some kinda way? Tell us in the comments below!
