What is this world coming to? Teachers tying their students up to imitate slaves is UNACCEPTABLE. A white history teacher who teaches at a middle school in New York attempted to teach her students about how slaves were tortured during slavery. One of her students who is an African-American girl volunteered for the activity. Another African-American girl was designated for the activity by the teacher. The teacher tied the two girls arms and legs together and made them crawl under the table to demonstrate how slaves were tortured. The designated African-American girl went home crying to her mother about how scared she was when the teacher tied her up and made her crawl under the table. Her mother then called the school and then went up to the school to have a meeting with the principal and the teacher who committed this "crime", but the teacher was not punished in anyway at all.
