University professor under investigation for reportedly holding mock slave auction
By Fox 5 DC


A Howard University professor is under investigation after he reportedly held a mock slave auction in class.

Details about the incident first were reported by the Caged Bird, an online magazine that targets readers who are students at historically black colleges and universities.

The professor, who is white, was reportedly teaching a lesson on Frederick Douglass' slave narrative.

I seem to recall an ex-poster saying no one becomes a professor by being an idiot.  Well, he was wrong.

There was a fraternity at Wisconsin that was suspended for holding a fake "slave auction" back in 1988. There was even some talk of shutting down the whole fraternity system because of it.

The only controls I want on my guns are the ones I operate by myself, such as safety, magazine release, bolt or slide, optics an' trigger. Any others are unnecessary.

Every working American is a slave.

When I was in school we would have "Slave Auctions".  That is what they were called.  The students would stand at the front and be auctioned off and had to do what the Auction Winner said all day.  It was for fun and to raise money for the school. == I don't guess it would go over too good today.  Is that what happened at the school in this thread?

    I also recall the student slave for a day . . . way back then.
    Not sure what the prof had in mind, but his mistake may have been in siting Frederick Douglass.  The fact is that FAR MORE non-blacks, have been sold into bondage than blacks.   
     It's probably just another example of outraged Liberals showing how concerned they are, while selectively ignoring history.

Part of history even if some don't like it. One has to understand that BLACKS also owned salves in those days.

Well if you throw in Inflation and several other things, it would be a lot today.  Back then probably about 10 cents.   Smiley
