Did You Hear The One About The White Teacher Who Bound Two Of Her Black 7th-Grade Students And Made Them Crawl Under Desks To Demonstrate What Slavery Must Have Been Like?

“During a Nov. 18 seventh-grade history lesson on slavery, the teacher, Eileen Bernstein, who is white, selected two black students—one of whom was 13-year-old Gabrielle —taped their hands and feet, and had them crawl into the space under a desk to simulate what it must have been like for slaves transported in ships’ holds during the voyage to America.

In retrospect, the teacher ‘realizes that that was not a good choice and we’ve rectified the situation in terms of not using that simulation again,’ [principal Avis Shelby] added.” [The Journal-News]

Thank God the school has taken measures to ensure that teachers don’t USE THAT SIMULATION AGAIN. For chrissakes.

    She should be fired …not for racism…..for stupidity.
