WATCH: ‘Why didn’t you stay in Mexico?’ Parent shocks anti-racism school board meeting

SALINE, MI — A Michigan parent interrupted a school board meeting with a racist remark, while another parent was talking about how racism at the school was affecting his child.

Adrian Iraola, who is Latino, had a microphone and was sharing a story about his son crying himself to sleep because of the racial abuse he was being forced to endure at his school.

Iraola was mid-sentence when a man seated behind him spoke up.

“Then why didn’t you stay in Mexico?” the man, later identified as Tom Burtell, said.

The interjection caused audible gasps and looks of shock from other parents in the room.

Teacher assigns 5th grade students to ‘get involved in the slave trade industry … set your price for a slave’ – WATCH

MEHLVILLE, Mo. (KMOV.com) — A troubling class assignment landed a Mehlville School District teacher on administrative leave. The question asked students to put a price on slaves.

The principal of Blades Elementary School, Jeremy Booker, responded to parents after a ‘culturally sensitive’ assignment was given to fifth graders last week.

One of the 12 questions read as follows:

“You own a plantation or farm and therefore need more workers. You begin to get involved in the slave trade industry and have slaves work on your farm. Your product to trade is slaves.

Set your price for a slave. _____________ These could be worth a lot.

You may trade for any items you’d like.”
