No America, it's not the same story. It is like a "two-fer" from the Peach State - that great racist state of Georgia is at it again.
Slave Games Part 2!
Our new story of backwards education starts when a 3rd-grader told her parent about a "slave game" that the daughter was told to play, with her white teacher at school.
The kids were playing a game of tag. The kids were the slaves and the teacher was the slave catcher.
School district spokesman, Jorge Quintana, stated that an investigation followed, and that the teacher didn't organize the "tag Negro, your turn to run" game. It was also stated that the kids initiated the game they found.
I don't know about that.
What 3rd-grade kids, African American kids for that matter, are being raised to discuss slavery and think it is worthy of playing a game, and in Georgia?
I learned about slavery in school, but definately not until I was a little older. I think at some point most African Americans discuss slavery at home, especially when history time rolls around or to further emphasize the importance of Black History Month.
It was more used as a tool by my mother to make me understand what African Americans went through, and that I was blessed to be in the position that i'm in.
Meaning - Education: Brings opportunity, Voting: Brings change, Strength: Knock the fuck out of someone when disrespected!
Slavery shit wasn't used to make me feel bad about myself or to put me in my place, which is what these dumbass teachers are doing to these kids.
It is like they are trying to say this is where you came from, and you will always be what they were - SLAVES!
First, the Georgia Board said the tests from the other week, were part of the curriculum.
Now, we're being told that African American 3rd-graders are now initiating "slave games" with one another on the playground. Even if that were true, who gave them the idea that this was a good thing?
Give me a fucking break!!!
Spokesman Jorge stated that the accusations were unfounded, yet the school distict is planning diversity training for their inept teachers!
And shame on them that it was only after a parent protest that a more thorough investigation was done.
That investigation found out that four teachers were responsible for the problem. One dumbass has resigned and now we're still waiting on the other three.
What's with the disrespect in our schools for children of color, for all kids for spreading this 19th century bullshit? It is so insulting.
What the fuck is going on in your miserable life to make you be so ignorant towards kids who need to be taught and not taught with a bias towards your dysfunctional mindset?
Shit, if life's that bad or you hate African Americans that much, get out of the education game, why you're at it, dammit, kill yourself. The world has enough problems without you polluting it further.
Why must Africaan Americans get radical in this day and age in order to get a school district to act right?
And lastly, Spokesperson Jorge, we're still waiting on an apology.
