"What matter who's speaking, someone said, what matter who's speaking."
It's actually conceivable that the teacher might have first done a lesson plan in which the roles were reversed: but then reflected that the thing she did would be less controversial. And she would have been right!
the shock is in the step of dividing the class by "race" now. it's mindboggling.

it's not like this kind of "reenactment" isn't done all the time by just randomly dividing the class and you're the pilgrims, you're the pequot. It's not a good tradition of course but what this teacher did is far beyond that. she divided the black kids (black now, we don't know what say light skinned caribbeans with the look of some african ancestry were told to do, the report said "african american and part african american" or "african american and mixed" - like they're doing race science) from the others and made them perform in this drama.
Did the lighter-skinned ones get to stay in the house? Or was that dependent on grades?
