    Teacher asks 8th-grade students to list positives of slavery

    Let's see...

    1. Free labor.

    2. The cotton industry was booming.

    3. As the great Cliven Bundy once said, it "gave them something to do".

    4. 12 Years A Slave, which was a great movie, never would have been made.

    Can you think of any more?

    Roots would have been one boring ass movie.

    "Your name is Toby."

    "My name is Kunta Kinte."

    "My bad, Kunta Kinte. I've been calling you by the wrong name this whole time."

    "No worries. It happens, bro."

    The slaves were fed, clothed, sheltered. They paid for nothing. The natural state of the liberal is slavery. They only want a kind and generous master.

    The school is just one more PC Idiocracy. EVERYTHING has a + and a - side to it, even slavery, that is the nature of the universe, otherwise there never would have been slaves! It was a lesson in critical thinking, thinking outside the box, not justification of slavery, but now thanks to fear of PC, these kids will lose a valuable lesson in looking at something very bad and seeing that even such things have their positive aspects. The Chinese call it yin and yang, but in the Dumbed Down States of America, our poor kids are not allowed to think and learn freely, being told by their "school" that you are only allowed to believe that things like slavery, war, old age, illness and even death are all bad with nothing good or positive to ever be gleaned, taken or learned from them.

    They were given medical care. Other than working in the fields every day, compared to the life they might have had back in Africa, it's possible many of them actually ended up having a better life here even as a slave, and after the Civil War they were free people, and if not for them, none of the Blacks here today would be here, nearly all of them would never have been born or would be living over in Ethiopia, Sudan or some other starving, dirt poor, backward African country, instead, many of them have been born here to grow up to be lawyers, doctors, scientists, people of education and leading great lives. All because of slavery. It all balances out. Some blacks want their reparations-- -- -- well, there you are.

    If that school receives any government funding, it should be pulled immediately, since that school's management is obviously corrupt and biased. There's nothing wrong with that questionnaire.
