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.
work = word, sorry.
And isn't it great they will have learned to do the math for how many slaves will be needed. Some of them will be our managers and some of their friends will be slaves.
I think we're both speaking the same result and just wording it a bit differently.
Another math problem read, “If Frederick beat his woman two times per day, how many beatings did the ho get in one week?”
Bingo. Cultures are not changed at the ballot box. We are well past the point of no return. That is what open borders and public indoctrination, er, education, will get you. Like Yuri Bezmanov said, there is no place left to go to rebuild freedom.
If people who work pay more than half their income in taxes, and people who don’t work get all the money that’s taxed, who has more money to spend on beer, cigarettes and lottery tickets?
If a Muslim man has four wives, each one of which bears three children, and one of his daughters dates a Christianity, how many people does this Muslim man have to kill?
If Ali and Abdul sold 200 slaves at $125 drachma each, how much did they split between them if each received half? There, that’s a better perspective?
If a man who is married to another man sexually abuses a boy in the locker room and is divorced by his spouse, how much money should he have to pay in spousal support?
Final exam question: How far backwards will Jwan travel after Bill & Dave empty their clips into his torso?
Extra credit if you can identify the entity that provided Jwan his education.
Let’s say you wanted to contextualize math problems, so as to make them more meaningful. And, what you wanted to do was incorporate the history of slavery in America for this purpose. This could actually be done in a way that is objective. This wouldn’t fit the agenda of race hatred. In fact, it would pro-American.
Some objective facts of slavery (and its aftermath) would include:
1. The fact that slavery pre-dated the forming of the United States.
2. The fact that the U.S. was one of the first countries of the world to ban the slave trade. (The ban is in the U.S. Constitution.)
3. The difference between slavery in the border states versus slavery in the deep south.
4. The hardening of opinions on slavery in the country, in conjunction with the use of the tariff by the north.
5. The growth of the north in terms of population and wealth, relative to the south.
6. The number of people who died in our Civil War relative to the number of people who were freed from slavery.
7. The progress of Americans of African heritage since emancipation.
8. A comparison of incomes of Americans by race (insofar as race can still be identified), showing Asian Americans to be at the top.
9. A comparison of the trend of income of people in the top 20 percent, in the middle 60 percent, and in the bottom 20 percent.
10. The correlation of stable families, working and education with being in the top 20 percent as opposed to being in the bottom 20 percent.
Slaves were EXPENSIVE. If all the big bad owners beat their slaves 24/7 like these lib whinies would have us believe, there would be no bales toted nor barges lifted and the plantations would have gone broke the first year.
The New Age slave will be enslaved by Islam when that religion finalizes its rule over this country. Muslims have a long history as slave traders. Muslims are still slave traders. Public education is readying our children for their future servitude?
Let’s not forget that Obama is a muslim.
This is why they created unions. To replace the slave trade.
Isn't that a contradiction in terms?
I mean, topologically speaking?
Add that Africans sold other Africans as slaves.
Compare the standard of living to American blacks who’s ancestors were brought here as slaves to what their lives would be like if they never came to the US.
Never mind that blacks also owned slaves in the US.
FWIW and IMHO, the trick to an efficient search is to pick one significant word from the title and then search by posting time. For example, using “Fred” from this article’s title: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/search?s=fred&ok=Search&q=quick&m=any&o=time
Well, okay, maybe your point is "technically" correct, but seems lacking in simple common sense.
Can you think of any other group of people besides blacks who were ever kept as slaves in Gwinnett Co., Georgia?
Can you think of any other in the United States...LOL? Don't you see you are falling for it. The math questions subliminally teach them how to manage SLAVES, not employees.
The agenda is bigger than the race card we're just several generations removed and we have not yet realized it. Adults we're playing catch-up to what they are really indoctrinating our kids with.
No need to apologize, just another a-hole appointing himself as a posting policeman. Most of us have a life and don't spend the day looking for duplicate posts. I missed this one and was glad you posted it.
Yes, it is true that blacks sold blacks into slavery. Slavery was common prior to the 19th century. People from all races were slavers and were enslaved. Therefore, a fair reading of history is that we, western civilization, put an end to slavery in the world. Looking back, we find that what we did was pretty terrific. Some people might even suppose that nobody could have even believed in slavery, or human sacrifices to the gods, or that people didn’t always believe that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights. But, look around, we see slavery today, religious wars today, and denial of the full humanity of certain people today. The revolution is not yet complete. And, even, the revolution is under threat in this country. The multiculturalists in attacking western civilization are so filled with hatred that they can’t deal with the facts of history or of today.
This is just pathetic. The Democrats need to take their one-trick-pony and put it in the stable. They just look....pathetic.
Final exam question: How far backwards will Jwan travel after Bill & Dave empty their clips into his torso?
Let's assume that both Bill and Dave were carrying M1911A1s chambered for .45 rounds. Both men are loaded with Federal Hydra-shoks, 165 grain, giving a muzzle velocity of 1060 ft/sec. Let's also assume that both men achieved excellent centre-mass shots, landing both rounds directly in the middle of Jwan's chest.
1 grain = 64.8 mg, therefore each bullet has a mass = (165 * 64.8 mg) = 10692 mg = 10.69 grams.
1060 ft/sec = 323.09 m/sec Let us assume that Jwan weighs 200 lb = 90.72 kg = 90720 grams. Let us assume that Jwan initially begins the encounter at rest, i.e. v = 0 m/sec
Now, we simply take conservation of momentum into account:
m1v1 = m2v2, calculate for v2
m1 = 10.69 g + 10.69 g = 21.38 g
v1 = 323.09 m/sec
m2 = 90720 g
v2 = (21.38g * 323.09 m/sec) / 90720 g = 0.076 m/sec, which converts into 0.25 ft/sec.
In other words, Jwan won't actually travel backwards all that quickly, given the huge disparity between his mass and that of the two bullets, even given their velocity.
Long story short, the theatrics we see in movies where people get shot and go flying backwards in magnificent fashion is not realistic.
Truth can be stranger than fiction...and we’re writing our own history....LOL
We live in Gwinnett county vey close to this school. I can assure the rest of America that we are a very normal suburb of Atlanta and I am perplexed and mortified as to how this insane lesson plan ever got developed. But then I’m perplexed and mortified at about 50% of the crazy stuff going on all over the country.
Good list. What about asking
- the number of whites who did not own slaves
- the number of black slave owners
- the number of black slave breeders
