Crooks & Liars covered this today. I found the video where the students who were “sold” were interviewed. Jesus, I have no idea what this teacher was thinking. Read about it, but don’t re-enact the humiliation. Everyone gets that a person being bought and sold like cattle and produce is humiliating. Isn’t this a given?
Oh, and you’ll see in the video that this isn’t the only crap VA schools have pulled.
ETA: Oh lookie. Another black person other than the parents of the “sold” kids who found it offensive:
