Plantation Weddings were Contentious Enough Already...
By - kinda_questionable
Whose eyes widened more and more with each swipe?
THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE!!!!! I want to read the comments SO BAD!
I wanna see the original post so bad.
Yeah honestly, it's so upsetting that this exists, but damn OP did us a real service by posting it lol
Yes! I wanna see the 4th photo AND "PART 1"!!!
Last photo can be seen here:
Thank you! Aw see, we missed her undoing his shackles. The story is complete!
Holy shit I thought you were joking. They literally have a shackles photo to round out their weird, fetishy wedding pics.
How does this happen? Did they require their families to continue the cosplay at the wedding?? I usually live for trainwreck weddings but this might be too much.
My eyebrows were touching my hairline by the final swipe!
Same here and that’s saying a lot concerning my Neanderthal forehead
I mean mine tried but Botox…. So my eyebrows were there in spirit!
However...the non blood inlaws of course will still be considered slaves and we have graciously provided a small shack for the mother-in-law for her laundry, cooking, faming cleaning and wet nursing duties....
I think both family members on both sides should be ashamed and embarrassed as well as these two I mean what the fuck
My husband showed this to me and asked how I would respond if it were our son, my first thought I would probably have a heart attack. Surly someone they knew said ,”guys this might not be the best idea.”
Apparently his mom is the one who came up with it!
Well clearly she’s just as lost as he is.
I didn’t realise he had chains on until the last pic, wow.
OMG I didn't see them until I read your comment
What the fuck. I just went back and saw them too.
What the fuck.
It’s cool. He’s smiling. *He’s part of the family now.*
That comment and this post gives me "Get Out" vibes...I hope that dude has a cheerful TSA agent best friend on standby to rescue him.
Just put it on because same
I saw them straight away and it’s the most fucked up cosplay I’ve ever seen.
The ol’ ball and chain am I right fellas?
This guy right here.
I’ve seen this post a few places and this is the first time I noticed the chains…
Thank you for saying that. I didn’t know there were swipes to be swiped. Wow. Just wow.
Eyes kept widening, lips got smaller and I kept clutching at my pearls. WHAT THE FUCK?
' _ ' ... o_o ... O_O
I gasped loud enough it woke my dog up
I let a huge "oh nooooo" out and now the cats are all awake.
I just kept saying to myself “what the fuck… what the *fuck*”
Normally I’m like “it’s there wedding let them do what they want” but my god who thought this was a good idea? Even if he is apparently ok with it, it looks so bad. And then the caption!? Implying that he WAS a slave but isn’t anymore because they’re married?
I’d love to be a fly on the wall with him and the homies after those photos dropped
We all know this man has no homies
He’s definitely not invited to the cookout.
I didn’t read the caption and thought the first pic just called for the fashion police and a tetanus shot (that roof in the background looks rusty as hell). Little did I know lockjaw should be the least of my concerns…
My jaw locked wide open
Lucky. The sheer cost of the Botox I need after the extreme facial contortions I went through due to the post will literally bankrupt me.
I am shocked Pikachu face...
I understand white people being dumb enough to not see how offensive this is, but WTF is up with the groom? Is he being held hostage? Is he plotting to marry her and kill her for her inheritance? Is he actually a professional model being paid for this? I need answers!
Edit: I've got it! The poor man has had the operation from Get Out! It has to be it! The photos must have been taken without a flash.
Internalized racism. I’ve met plenty of POC like this. It’s sad.
Edit: my friend pointed out that there are white ppl out there who romanticize themselves as white saviors so ppl saying it’s a kink 100% accurate. White savior kink.
ok wait what? I used to work in the porn industry and I NEVER heard or saw this fetish in videos.
Like I'm not one to kink shame but this one...yeah this one I feel it's a-ok to kink shame.
I think it’s also more of white people feeling good about themselves via the white savior complex. Like where the bride says he’s no longer a slave - as in she freed him - is quite obvs she’s got a fantasy. Maybe sexual maybe not. But still a fetishized or romanticized version of slavery.
But ultimately it brings up other moral questions - someone who is enslaved cannot consent. So….is she implying what I think she’s implying. Which I’m sure she’s not even aware of.
And maybe we should be thankful the porn industry isn’t doing this shit 😂
It feels like some sort of fantasy on her part of like, "If we had lived back in the days of slavery, our love would've freed you. :)" Not realizing that a plantation owner's daughter hooking up with a slave may have gotten her killed and *definitely* would've gotten him killed. Like a family that believes in slavery enough to keep a man shackled in the field is not gonna suddenly see him as equal because the daughter likes him.
The porn industry isn't afraid of a little public backlash, but even they know when something pushes the envelope to far.
I Imagine the in-laws say “He’s one of the good ones” 🤮
Uncle Ruckus. No relation.
“It says I’m 102% african with a 2% margin of error”
Several of my older relatives had/have some pretty serious internalized racism, but this is beyond that. Like, Uncle Tom's been left in the dust; these two need a smack and a deadly serious talk about wtf they even thought they were trying to accomplish here. I would make it quite graphic if it were up to me because clearly they've never been taught proper shame, and God knows I can supply it in plenty, jfc
Yup. He's a 75 year old white man losing his eyesight. There is literally ONLY THIS as a rational explanation.
Jesus. Does no one watch movies anymore? This guy living his single, solitary best "Antebellum" life while her (presumably white) family look on. I just hope most of his side were unable to attend. Putting on a show like this for Grandma is just too much. Stop.
My jaw dropped more and more as I went on.
Yep, I definitely developed a full blown cringe face in three stages.
I got full body chills in a bad way… I’m also white and not American. Can’t imagine how others feel.
Each picture made my "WHAT THE FUCK!?" get louder, that's for sure.
Clutched my pearls for sure.
My pearls are snapped, hitting the carpet, and rolling under the sofa on this one. Gah
First pic is really.. innocent? I didn't see anything wrong with it. But the next ones killed me on the spot, ohmygod
The first picture is the least offensive, but the caption underneath is really problematic.
Yeah, that part was weird, but more in slightly-lift-eyebrows way. I didn't really understand what they were trying to say by that.
2nd and 3rd pic explained everything.
Same. I didn't read the caption and thought, "Isn't this just cottagecore? Let them have their fun."
Then I saw the next 2 pics. *shocked pikachu face* followed by full blown pearl clutching.
Finally, I went back and read the caption on the first photo. Someone needs to bring the smelling salts to my fainting couch.
The caption was bad, and then I kept swiping and everything got worse.
Except for the words under the pic
WHY WOULD HE AGREE TO THIS?!
I refuse to believe this isn't satire. Someone please tell me this is satire.
My first thought is this is a photo shoot/setup for a romance novel? I can’t believe these are real people getting married.
So this is the Cassius I’ve heard so much about
With each swipe I kept muttering: “this can’t be real. This can’t actually be real.”
Even if it were, you'd have to pay a lot of money to get someone willing to do that satirically. I can't imagine what their friends think, let alone the general public.
Maybe they did it to show the implications of having your wedding at the plantation? That’s the only thing I could think of.
It looks like a photoshoot for a shitty self published erotica novel.
Im thinking stock photos.
I saw the man deleted his IG account and the photographer made their account private.
Kink? I mean, some people wanna get sold to One Direction. ¯\\_(ツ)_/¯
yeah 16 year olds. that man is an adult
> that man is an adult
So what? Last year didn't teach you anything?
Even if he did, he's gotta realize how horrible this looks to everyone else on the planet! There's a reason most people keep their kinks private. Lol
Yes, people in the kink community recognize that not everyone has the same likes and dislikes. So maybe you want to dress your partner up like a horse and parade them around at the park while you yield a whip. Cool. But consensual participation is necessary. You, as an ethical kinkster, wouldn't impose that on unsuspecting bystanders. So you take your tricks to a pony show with all the other people who share that kink, and have a jolly good field day.
This is not what these people are doing
Thank you! Yes! By all means, do your weird kink shit all you want if all are legal adults who consent. This isn't it. I don't want to see your leash and collar while Master is walking you, but I'll take that any day if this is the other option. I need to go pluck my eyes out,, now.
He's a massive troll and likes to see the look of horror on people's faces
He got mine. Legit earnt it. I was too busy trying to figure out how his poor Grandmother would feel watching that fiasco.
Dude's a tap dancing uncle Tom lel
And what did his family think!?!?
...is this guy okay? like... sir???
Maybe they’re modelling for a photographers ad?? I hope?!?!
I don't know that would be any better though.. unless it was an ad for things that should never be done
Oh I agree. I’m just having trouble figuring out why any couple would request this.
An insane photographer is easier for me to comprehend
I was thinking this is the artwork for the world's cringiest romance novel.
The 1842 year at the beginning of the caption. The rest of the caption reads like a book blurb. Historical fiction romance novels are absolutely in right now (I love a good Regency bodice ripper, myself). And some moron thinks it's a great idea to write a story of the daughter of the house falling in love with an enslaved man.
The historian in me cries in horror because this is so, so inappropriate... But then the Netflix adaptation of Bridgerton exists like "yes, love can totally overcome oppression"... sigh.
My feeling about historical fiction is "Could it have really happened?" Sure. Did it happen the way it's portrayed here with a fairy tale ending? **Hell no!**
I think this is exactly what it is. I keep seeing TikToks and reels that are like fanmade book trailers. A lot of the time they seem like self-published niche sub genres (like this horrible scenario) and the only way the authors can get attention is via viral outrage.
I’m also just hoping this isn’t a real wedding.
Definitely would end in death for the man and social ostracization of the woman.
Which is ridiculous considering how many white men had sex with (read: r-ped) black women in that time.
Wtf am I looking at, is this the sunken place?
No, this is the bad place!
HOLY MOTHERFORKING SHIRT BALLS
Chidi and Elenor would not tolerate this nonsense!
Honestly, I kind of expected that joke here
Jason got it?! JASON?!
Oh, this one hurts!
What in the Roots fan fiction
What in the fetishization…
I fully support their right to do whatever kinky role play they want, but this is not the master/slave dynamic that I've come to associate with the BDSM community.
There are lots of kinks that involve so-called "race play". "Black men are superior", "white men are superior", "black women are queens" all have followers. Personally I am very uncomfortable with the whole concept, but I just try to not venture into those muddy waters.
Whatever anyone's kink is, there is such a thing called TMI...
I fully support all that is safe sane and consensual, but normally when you see people proudly displaying their BDSM proclivities, it's coded as such. I don't want to yuck someone else's yum, but the fact that this is positioned as just another engagement photoshoot is deeply troubling.
Idk why but I thought you meant the band and was pretty confused for a second

Get Out 😳
Written by Harriet Beecher Stowe.
Ok, now I’ve seen everything
Oof. This made my stomach turn.
THIS is the content this sub was made for.
waiting for a cross post from AITA - "I love my pre-wedding pics but all our friends are saying they're blatantly racist. WIBTA if I doubled down and kept them? AITA for insisting they're just fine?"
Then all the AITA comments will be people saying "NTA!! It's your wedding!! Hit your friends, hire the gym, and divorce the lawyer!"
Shut it down, the sub will never get more shameful than this.
Agreed. I don't think anything can top this monstrosity
I'm with you. We shouldn't wait for something to top this.
Right? We've officially peaked. I'm genuinely gobsmacked.
I just wanted to read about brides paying children to spill red wine on their MIL's white gown 😭
This HAS to be satire. They're obviously mocking plantation weddings... right?
No matter what this is the explanation I am going with. Otherwise I may not be able to sleep tonight.
"Please God let this be making fun of ignorant white people" was my first coherent thought.
even if that were the case they would have to realize that like these pictures would eventually be seen without that context, which doesn't seem like a risk most sane people would be okay taking
I am gobsmacked
I raised my eyebrow at the first pic, my eyes widened at the second, my hand shot to my mouth to cover my gasp of shock on the third pic.
How...why....whose idea? and he was okay with it?? so many questions.
Did you read the caption on the first? It’s a doozy
This might be one of my favorite "what in the ever loving fuck" posts on this sub
I actually laughed at the chains. At some point you can only laugh at shit like this.
Doesn’t this young man have family? Somebody that could have talked to him about why this is so wrong. And if the bride was ok with this, how will she raise bi-racial children?
Think of the children just took on a whole new gravity.
How did anyone think this was a good idea?
omg is this real life??!!?!!
I think all of the cringe has been used up for the next couple of days.
Wtf?? No..it’s to early for this.
The way my jaw dropped more and more with each swipe. I have no words.
I wanna be there when they show grandma the wedding album
Oh, gramma got the fly swatter out for this one.
Jesus fucking Christ what the actual fuck?
Exactly my reaction
Not just the couple. It appears (from the use of the word “session 2”) that a professional photographer agreed to this, maybe even providing the props/costumes etc for it. Oh holy hell.
Somebody else called it cottoncore and I’m dead.
What in the tarnation.
This is not an american couple--they are dominican--not sure why that make any diffrence, though. Their inspiration was 12 years a slave--and I did find that ---SURPRISE!! the photographers IG account is now disabled!!
Nooooooooooooooo.... No, no no no. Nope. Nuh uh.
This was my exact reaction.
I don’t have words. I need a black people conference to decide if we are keeping this man
He already made his choice. He staying enslaved.
You know good and goddamn well we are not keeping this man. I don’t think we could if we tried
Looks to me like he's already being kept.
If “all skinfolk ain’t kinfolk” was a person.
He can stay in 1842.
We are not
Absolutely not. He's lost to us.
I mean... he *is* black so I guess it's his call to do his own thing, but...
this just seems like a little roleplay that would have been best kept, yanno... private.
Seriously, no one wants to see these pics but the couple and a small group of other historical raceplay fetishists.
If this isn’t some kind of twisted satire, it’s definitely some sort of fetish. Maybe for both of them.
>historical raceplay fetishists.
Now there's a phrase I never thought I'd read
Yeah, this is 100% a kink of theirs that they did *not* need to publicize.
What the actual hell is going on??
Me on the first one not looking into it: Meh not really seeing anything looks very old school
Me on the 2nd: Wait... what?
Me on the 3rd: what the fuck? !
This can't be real. No one is this stupid.
Come on op give us a hint where to find this abomination of a post. I must read the comments and see what 1,468 sad souls liked this.
Who told them this was a good idea?!
Hes wearing *CHAINS* how is this real please tell me this isn't real
What the fuck?! I have no other words… What.The.Fuck.
I wish people would stop romanticizing other people’s trauma.
What the ACTUAL FUCK
MULTIPLE PEOPLE AGREED AND ARRANGED THIS. THE GUY. THE LADY. THE PHOTOGRAPHER. A FUCKING COSTUMER.
Tell me it's a satirical ad campaign. Please.
Jesus H Christ
This is why Jesus changed his middle name to Fucking.
Omfg he’s actually wearing chains wtf?! I can’t believe he said yes to this!
if you lean in and listen very closely you can hear his black card being shredded
Excuse me while I pick my jaw up off the ground! omg
Can a straight person please explain to me why y’all are so fucking w e i r d
Nope. Straight, white, interracial marriage 20 years- I would NEVER!
First photo : Oh what’s wrong with this?
Second photo : I didn’t notice the chains.
Third photo : Yo wtf?! *eyes wide and checking the other photos*
Takes the saying kept man to a whole new level. *please don’t burn me. I’m an African American woman and would NEVER agree to this*
Just call me a slur next time.
My relative had a wedding on a former southern plantation, where basically all the guests were white and all the food catering staff were black. Hands down the most uncomfortable feeling I've ever had. I can't imagine how anyone would be comfortable having a black fiance cosplay slave.
What in the actual fuck is wrong with these people?
WTF!!! I blame him completely, why would you agree to this? This has Get Out vibes
I instinctively wanted to downvote so badly. I have trouble on this sub. Unbelievable…
What a terrible day to have eyes
The Get Out sequel looks wild.
I'm not racist I have a black friend
The black friend:
When Sam Jackson in Django is your hero.
What in the Uncle Ruckus is this shit?
First picture: "Eh, not my style, but all right"
Second and third pictures: "Oh my goodness, I do believe I have become rage incarnate, isn't that some shit"
He’s been thoroughly “Get Out”-ed
I usually take the position of, just because you don't like it, doesn't mean it should be shamed.
But this....dude....what the fuck?
There's differences in taste and then there's slavery cosplay ok
My fiancé would leave my ass if I ever suggested this and he would be 100000% right to! This is disgusting 🤦🏼♀️
This might be one of the most offensive things I have ever seen. How on earth was anyone involved with this okay with what was happening.
Ugh what in the hell?!
I know race play exists and as a mixed WOC I'm personally disgusted by it. I think this is entirely inappropriate to do for a wedding. If it's your kink... whatever but this is just gross af. If any of you are interested I recall [Kat Blaque made a pretty good video on the subject. ](https://youtu.be/gov_LDGwdBg)
What the fuck.
I absolutely realize my comment doesn't serve any purpose but I had to say it.
What. The. Actual. Fuck.
*ooooohhhhh THIS is the bad place!*
