Jamelle Young is outraged after her five-year-old son was asked to act out a slave auction in his kindergarten class.
Young found out about the “auction” after her son told her one day after school that “he didn’t want to get on the table at the auction block.”
Reportedly, the black students acted like the slaves while their white peers acted as the masters.
\Young’s son attends the MacMillan International Academy in Montgomery, Ala. The unidentified teacher also reportedly asked the black students to ask their parents if they’d “ever go back into slavery.” (Watch the full report above).
