I find it somewhat amusing that all the photos look great except for the one single photo that has someone other than a white middle class person in it.

Fats-T, what are you saying then? The only pictures of "white, middle-class" people are great? You don't think the picture of the black couple is great too? Gosh. You're so racist. Why is it you can't appreciate a thread of photos for what they are? I guess you're stuck on the color of peoples skin and what financial class they're confined to, huh? Small world you live in. Hypocrite.

@ pitterpatt thats not what I mean at all. I'm saying that whomever put this post together used a lot of Life magazine photos and professional shots showing white middle class people except for the one photo showing anyone from another ethnicity, which also happens to be the worst photo in terms of composition, lighting, pose, etc.. Of the millions of prom photos out there I find it rather odd that this is the one they threw in where they should have either included more photos of different ethnicities and classes, found a better photo, or simply excluded it all together. In retrospect I guess it could sound like I'm being racist but I'm only trying to point out the quasi-racist/classist nature of the oversight. It was a poorly written comment on my part, sorry for the confusion.
