A teacher mock-auctioned off the minorities in her class to teach about slavery

On April 1st, Jessica Boyle separated students in her class and put the black and mixed race students up for sale, according to WVEC News, apparently in a well intentioned, but ill-advised attempt to demonstrate the injustices of the slave era.

For our next lesson, I’d like anyone whose family comes from Germany to pick up a toy gun and anyone who’s Jewish to stand over here in the [air quotes] gas chamber. The rest of you can stay in your seats until Akira gets back from the boys’ room.
