A Florida student at Fleming Island High School was recently suspended and transferred to an alternative school after the Clay County school district confirmed that the teen posting a racist Craigslist ad about two of his classmates being slaves for sale, reports Local 10.

From Local 10:

The ad, which showed two black students, offered “Two Slaves for Sale-$470” and was geographically tagged to Fleming Island Plantation.

The ad, which was taken off the website, showed the students sitting at school desks with the caption “Two healthy negro slavegals for sale. Good condition and hard work ethic! If you need another pair of hands around the farm/house, you’re in luck!”

…Superintendent Addison Davis issued the following statement: “We do not tolerate this type of behavior and we are disheartened that any of our students would be subject to discrimination. Fleming Island High School administration and district leadership are working together to create a school-wide plan of action to strengthen the climate and culture while celebrating the school’s diversity.”

The school also contacted the local Sheriff’s office about the incident, but deputies said no crime had been committed after an investigation, reports the Orlando Weekly.

    How about a former slave owners great great grand ass wipe free with several cans of whup ass to be used by brown skins only.

  2. Now here’s the CORRECT PERSPECTIVE.
    In the 60’s when we raised hell and said we weren’t gonna take it any more, the RACISM TREE was cut down. BUT there remains a stump! And that stump has roots that spread wide and far to THIS VERY DAY!

    That’s why you don’t marry|associate constantly|look for support from these people [white
    people] .It’s LUDACRIS! Pure and simple.

    RACISM is even SYSTEM WIDE NATION WIDE.The Black Man is the most hated and despised in the NATION OF AMERICA. This is FACT.

    Who you married to? LOL

    • SO this sit these kids just did IS NOT SURPRISING! And until we come to the full realization, we need to address OUR PROBLEMS and stop worrying about who has the best idea [saying who made you boss OR we’re not a monolithic people] all that sit does is keep us DOWN. And until we can stop shooting our own selves in the foot and cutting one another down, our position in this country will always be considered that of A second class citizen.

      Every state in America is racist. America was once a slave holding nation. One reason Trump is trying and deport all non whites,because he and his gang want to make America great again. Meaning selling black people. Free labor from black slaves and the United States economy will make America great again for white folks.

      Florida made Jim Crow law famous. Although it was law throughout the southern racist states, FL was most known, ask Sydney Poitier, he may have forgotten though.

  3. With the tone sweeping the country such as it is, starting with the current administration, is anyone really surprised by this….this kind of ignorance is becoming quite boring; nonetheless, we remain alert and vigilant.
