An 8th grade American History classroom in Novi, MI, a suburb of Detroit a question was posed to the students:
The essay was assigned to be completed in class, and the teacher stated that he did not want any parental involvement.
Steve Matthews, Superintendent of the Novi Community School District, said the essay was based on a Michigan Content Expectation, in which 8th grade students were asked to be able to explain the differences in the lives of free blacks — including those who escaped from slavery — with the lives of free whites and enslaved people.
“The majority of the class felt that they would rather be a slave than to be a factory worker. And she was just extremely confused by that, knowing what slaves went through, she couldn’t understand why anyone would choose that,” James said. “The rationale by those students to choose slaves was that they had free housing, they had free food and they had free protection. But the argument that she and I put forth was that those things were not free.”
They have successfully created a class of people who would rather have free stuff than freewill.
Congratulations, Democratic Party.
