Student's Racially Insensitive Homework Question About Slavery Emerges Online

By Dana Levinson

Our Redeemer Lutheran School in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, a private Christian school, allegedly decided that it was a good idea to ask children to answer a question on their homework naming three positive things about slavery. 

Tremake Brown, a parent of a student at this school, told Fox:

I couldn’t believe they sent something like that home. Not only was my son in an awful position, but the students who weren’t black ― that’s what keeps racism going.

Brown then posted proof of the assignment to her Facebook account:

Does anyone else find my 4th grader's homework offensive?😡
