Ah.... NYC Public School teachers......future "rubber room candidates. Why pick on blacks/slaves? How come the "teacher" did not do a math problem about Jews in Nazi concentration camps,dead Mafia gangsters or Native Americans? I Know Blacks/Slaves are easy targets. Business as usual for bigoted a....holes-dirt bags.

Listen, you guys CANNOT prove anything because it's OUR school. Angelina, Anika and I go to this school and we are not letting people that don't know a thing about our school say: "FIRE HER IMMEDIATELY" Because we won't so just leave us alone and never say anything about our environment ever again!

I am an African American parent. I am NOt offended by the assignment at all.!!!!! My children school district barely teaches about slavery so to me any information is informative. I know a lot of people are outraged and upset just let it go and move on to maybe how we can better educate our students about slavery.
