    The poster read, "If I was black I'd be picking cotton, but since I'm white I'm picking you..."

    Just wanna say this is not right and this shouldn't have been perceived as ok for him to even write out in big letters as an 18 year old.

    This is the promposal in question.

    Not directed to a black student but his white girlfriend. Who shared this post with heart eyes on snapchat.

    Disgusted by this and I've already written a lengthy email to his headteacher. I'd say we should all do the same but more than 1000 people have shared the original facebook post.

    Wow you must be really desperate to find something to be offended by if you're looking at reports of things that high school kids have done in local newspapers on the other side of the Atlantic.

    For getting rid of closet racists? Misogynists? Rapists? For dispelling myths that heterosexuality is "normal" and homosexuality is "gross"?

    This generation is incredible, and will only get better.

    she shared his message on snapchat, but one of her friends reported it and here we are now.
    Those at their school are also reporting their text messages/everything. **** is going down on facebook.

    If it wasn't relevant to you then why did you click it. Was it by force?

    This place, TSR, actually has a large international community. I'm not an international student - I just have a dual passport and I'm a first generation to the UK.
