Skip to comments.'If Fred Got Two Beatings Per Day…' Homework Asks
Posted on 01/08/2012 5:03:25 AM PST by EBH
Third graders in in Gwinnett County, Ga., were given math homework Wednesday that asked questions about slavery and beatings.
Christopher Braxton told ABC News affiliate WSB-TV in Atlanta that he couldn't believe the assignment his 8-year-old son brought home from of Beaver Ridge Elementary school in Norcross.
"It kind of blew me away," Braxton said. "Do you see what I see? Do you really see what I see? He's not answering this question."
The question read, "Each tree had 56 oranges. If eight slaves pick them equally, then how much would each slave pick?"
Another math problem read, "If Frederick got two beatings per day, how many beatings did he get in one week?"
Another question asked how many baskets of cotton Frederick filled.
"I was furious at that point," Braxton said.

Isn't it crazy, how the very same people who have been telling us for decades about the horrors of slavery are now attempting to normalize it back into the minds of the young. First they dumbed everything down, then they made everything politically correct, then they taught that our constitution was a "living document" and that our Rights come from the government, not God.
All of that was done to control and manipulate us. Several generations of propaganda taught to you, your kids, your kids, kids. And now they teach to normalize the idea of slavery to this last generation...who they will make into slaves and they will bow to the New Age elitist slave owners. This New Age slave will not be a matter of skin color...it will be a matter of elite or not. This is what the concept of redistribution does to a culture.
It is going to take more than election to save our country, we have a whole culture to save.
Are you sure it isn't an attempt to keep the race card alive in perpetuity?
We need to find out who reviewed and approved these books/lessons.
Tar / feathers / pitchforks.
NO cheers, unfortunately.
If he got beat twice a day, it was probably for posting duplicate threads:
*PING* Do any of the rest of you know of anyone who might want to read this?
THIS thread is in case some got the wrong answers on the last one.
I think the answers were 7 and 14.
I did run the entire title through the search function first. And looking at the keywords I just chose something different.
Mods, feel free to delete!
I thought it was about the nuns in my old parochial school and how they kept discipline
“How does this play into the progressive agenda?”
It is just another attempt at the governmental level to teach white guilt and hatred of whites to a new generation of Holder Youth by cultural Marxists.
The Race Card is everywhere and forever.
the dems MUST keep racism alive... it’s the foundation if their voting block
If Fred got two beatings per day and asked for a raise would he then receive three beatings a day?
he might get 3-4 beatings right then and there.
You could not be more wrong. This was put in the curriculum to keep the kids angry at whitey for enslaving their ancestors with no mention of how whitey fought a civil war to free those same ancestors and begin correctng the wrong.
It is just another attempt to keep the race card in play and to insure that black kids grow up angry. It’s also designed to make white kids grow up guilty and hating their own ancestors and American culture.
I see...a bonus.
The questions did not contain the word “black” or “black slaves.” They just said ...slaves. They are counting on you to assume the “black” innuendo. Congratulations, you did exactly what the Agenda required. All you are seeing is the racism card.
You are missing the wider scope of the exercise to normalize the discussion of managing slaves for business. Not blacks, not hispanics, not illegal immigrants...just slaves of no arbitrary origin. The lesson is for the kids to learn, internalize, and normalize...the lessons is not for the radicals of a free Republic.
Unbelievable...are they talking a five-day or seven-day week? What an ambiguous question!
When you talk about “slaves” to modern American kids, they automatically think “black slaves”. They know what they’re supposed to think and that’s what they’ll think. The only thing this lesson is designed to normalize is a hatred of the America that used to exist, so that they’ll cheer the New America.
When the New Order takes over and makes slaves of us all, they won’t call us slaves. They’ll have a nice, feel-good term for it, so preparing kids to think of themselves as slaves (as you believe) is going to be pointless because no one is ever going to call them “slave”. They’ll probably be called “Comrade” or even “Citizen” as they are being shippped off to work in the collective farm or mine.
The search function works poorly with the entire title - too many variables are in play. Choose just one work from the title - over 3 letters in length - and search as a title.
