I saw this article over at Racialicious about a 10-year-old boy who was chosen to portray a slave on the auction block during a lesson on slavery. There were reportedly only two African American kids in the class.
No word on how many African Americans are in the Intervarsity Christian Fellowship at Michigan Tech (the photos show a pretty pale bunch), but it held a slave auction over the weekend to raise money.
White people sure seem to enjoy re-enacting slavery. Maybe it’s a trip down nostalgia lane.
