What The Hell?? Black Ohio Elementary School Student Asked To Play A Slave In Class Project

slave auction


The mother of a black Ohio fifth grader assigned to play a slave for a social studies lesson says the school should be more sensitive. Principal Scott Schmidt of Chapelfield Elementary in Gahanna called Aneka Burton to apologize for what happened to her son, Nikko, on Wednesday. Columbus station WBNS-TV reports Schmidt said no harm was intended.

Ten-year-old Nikko says the class was randomly divided into “masters” and “slaves” and that the only other black student got to be a master. Burton says her son refused to take part in a simulated slave auction and was sent back to his desk. Burton says she appreciates the apology, but the exercise was inappropriate. The school district said in a statement Thursday that officials acted promptly once the concern was raised.

  • mixed bad chick

    Why would they even need to do this type of project? Just a very very dumb idea.

  • if anything be noble

    Great posts, Sydney. I agree completely. (When I get flippant, I’ve come to realize it’s to avoid the real pain but that was extremely well-said. Well done.)

  • Sasha

    I don’t see the big deal! A black kid was a master.


    Good job,Nikko-always,ALWAYS have respect for yourself and let no one degrade you.

  • Kayla

    You are so ignorant!

  • Kayla

    I was referring to Sasha.

  • always knew

    none of this exercise, is positive.. the teacher should be fired.. Ohio and Boston, no, not racist at all..are you kidding, this is the norm..

    sarcasm intended*

  • Courtney

    A reenactment wasn’t necessary. Point blank, period. If you can’t teach history without having kids to reenact painful things of the past, maybe you don’t need to be a teacher! If they were learning about the Holocaust I bet the teacher wouldn’t have had them act that out.
