I bet their parents thought it was funny. Until football got canceled. Now they'll blame 'woke libruls' for the fact that they dropped the ball on raising decent human beings.

Seems conservatives owe Colin Kaepernick an apology. Again.

If I suggested what those Klansmen-in-training needed I'd be banned.

Does the punishment fit the crime?  I might suggest that they be ordered to complete 291,200 hours of community work service (16 hours a day, 7 days a week, for 50 years if my calculations are correct).  Give them something of a modern equivalent.

This isn't in an area of the country some may assume.  It's bad no matter where it happens.

Even then you wouldn't get the authenticity of selling your children so you'll never ever see them again.

Over at Fox News the comments are as predictable as always, including failing to see the difference between a "slave auction" offering goods and services for a charitable cause and one offering Black students for the amusement of a screaming mob.

Did they also auction the caucasian cheerleaders?

After reading the article and giving it the proper level of consideration I think this makes a lot of sense.

"Re-enacting a slave sale as a prank tells us that we have a great deal of work to do with our students so they can distinguish between intent and impact"

WTF does that mean? The intent was racist. The impact was racist. The only way I can interpret that statement is "teach them not to say the quiet part out loud."

How about not teaching them to be racists?

Also, TFA has a lot of adults saying they probably just meant it as a joke, but we need to teach them it's not funny. But there's no quotes from the students'involved saying they meant it as a joke. Obviously racist adults making excuses for their racist kids.

I suppose they could have meant it as a threat or as a history lesson but that seems unlikely.  Of course it was a joke, and that it was done for amusement is actually the worst part.

This "meant it as a joke" excuse is the stupidest thing in the world.  Because even if it is a joke, it is a joke for THEIR amusement at a black student's expense.  That to me is just as farking racist as anything else they meant to do with that stunt.  Maybe it's even WORSE because they did it for fun.  They denigrated and hurt people and laughed about it.

Lol, I'm not even sure key and Peele threaded the needle on that one either.  Of course I will let others be the judge but yeah, that definitely requires high level skill to pull off.

They hurt people who considered them to be teammates at least; now these teenage boys get to live the next 70+ years w/ the memory of their friend suggesting they were a thing to be sold, b/c that friend thought the idea of enslavement was funny.
