    “If Frederick got two beatings per day, how many beatings did he get in one week? Two weeks?”

    Your Black News reports:
    Third grade math is not normally the course where students are taught about beating slaves and dehumanizing labor, but two teachers at Beaver Ridge Elementary School in Atlanta thought it was a perfectly normal integration.
    Chris Braxton told Fox 5 Atlanta that his son came home from school Friday afternoon with a racially inflammatory assignment that featured such questions as:
    “Each tree had 56 oranges. If eight slaves pick them equally, then how much would each slave pick?”
    “How many baskets of cotton did Frederick fill?”
    “If Frederick got two beatings per day, how many beatings did he get in one week? Two weeks?”
    While the Gwinnett County School District admits the questions were “inappropriate,” they are not disciplining the teachers in any way; in fact, they came swiftly to their defense.

    Nothing surprises me anymore. I've come to expect now. Also this present day "education" is mired in programming IMO instead of learning and elevating. Our so called educational system, reminds me of a minor league baseball league. They almost mirror each other.

    So there was NO other way to teach math? To teach math of all things. People wonder why people are confused. Because it's supposed to be this way, sad to say. This is no accident.

    I have a math question for the teachers who advocated this. If 2 teachers got punched in the face, how many black eyes would there be? lol

    I think the teachers wouldn't take kindly to that question. Which is why they shouldn't take kindly to a subject like slavery being intertwined with math.

    A little background: Gwinnett County is a predominantly white county. Its next door neighbor, Dekalb County, is not only predominantly black but it also is the 2nd highest income, predominantly black county in America.

    And that bring me to this question: Why would black people want to live in Gwinnett? The county disconnected its bus line from MARTA (ATL's rail and bus system) to prevent black folks from coming there, for goodness sake!

    If the Black folks pay taxes for the school system in the so called Black Mecca, then whose responsibility is it to ensure curriculum, make changes in the school board also?

    This is kind of funny after sad becuase the Illuminati are doing what is simply called a litmus test of the Black community there to see if they are really Black or negroes

    This more then likely is the first step to see how much bull crap folks will simply roll over fro, if parents ans brother manic Rader said are not up in arns about this,

    then they know 'Anything Goes"

    a simple concept of psychological warfare!

    Do understand that the whole concept we knew as children in the 60s of problem solving has been taken out of most schools, since "No Child Left Behind" and "Race to the Top",
    so if problem solving is introduced like this crap it would be more apparent!

    They are on page two, and saying if we can do this to their children, what will they allow us to do to them and the elderly?

    They live there because Stone Mountain got too BLACK for them and Gwinett is closer to that Stone Mountaintop Dr. King had a dream about integrating.

    But when he woke up from the dream and focused on Black economic unity and pan Africanism, when he met with Malcolm, some folks still found some excuse to hate on the man.

    This problem can be solved by avoiding the public school system altogether. We as a community should form our OWN schools based on afrocentric teachings. They could start off as "private" institutions, but then end up as "free" institutions using other forms of compensation for keeping the centers afloat.

    With 60 million of us in this country, and millions more around the world, we have the power to control our own welfare. Yes, stories like this should make us angry, but at the same time it should also want us to take action. WE give the white man too much power.

    Sadly,

    To constantly get angry at these commonly blatant acts, is a constant reminder of the historical amnesia (not implying that you aren't knowing blackisbeautiful. Speaking in general, as a people) that plagues our community. To the point that we don't have in the public domain a serious discussion, or debate, about forming our own academic institutions as blackisbeautiful has suggested.

    Listen to the chick trying to reason away what happened. Talking'bout merging the disciplines (history and mathematics).
    Yt..., huhuhuhuha!..., when they are caught with their hand in the cookie jar they have, I believe, a knack to tell a fib in
    such away that makes it appear as if they believe what they are saying.

    Actions like that are part and parcel of 'the amerikkkan way'. Thankfully
    places like georgia do their part to work so to not let us forget it.

    No otherw
    ise they would go on every where, they are part and parcel of the military technique of psychological warfare to see how much we are asleep, and if Atalanta was/is supposed to be the Black Mecca in America and folks are not up in arms about this crap then they know we are asleep , and are planning the next BS to whip on the community.

    There is an entire generation that puts up with all kinds of crap in politics, education, the media that insults us and our ancestors that too many say, "oh well" and don't and won't do **** about it.

    Back in the days folks would be coming not just from all over Atalanta but all over Georgia to shut the school down

    Complacency is the opiate of the masses!
