couldn't the teacher have done a similar exercise just using professions?

Doctors or Security?

Carpenters or Farmers?

Teachers or Mechanics?

I remember doing something similar in college level intro to communications class, except it was a hostage situation and the hostage takers allowed you to pick certain people that they would let go. I don't think they mentioned race though,

I’ve jokingly asked my kids who they’d save in a bad situation, out of their mother and I.

Dads lose. ? At least this one did.

This is just a poorly designed morality thought experiment exercise.

I used to do one called Alligator River. It wasn’t as bad as this one though.


THE ALLIGATOR RIVER STORY


Instructions: Please read the following story. After reading the story, rank the five characters in the story in the space provided below it, beginning with the one you consider as most offensive, and ending with the one you consider as least objectionable. Also, briefly note your reasons as to why you ranked them in that order.



There lived a woman named Abigail who was in love with a man named Gregory. Gregory lived on the shore of a river. Abigail lived on the opposite shore of the same river. The river that separated the two lovers was teeming with dangerous alligators. Abigail wanted to cross the river to be with Gregory. Unfortunately, the bridge had been washed out by a heavy flood the previous week. So she went to ask Sinbad, a riverboat captain, to take her across. He said he would be glad to if she would consent to go to bed with him prior to the voyage. She promptly refused and went to a friend named Ivan to explain her plight. Ivan did not want to get involved at all in the situation. Abigail felt her only alternative was to accept Sinbad’s terms. Sinbad fulfilled his promise to Abigail and delivered her into the arms of Gregory.

When Abigail told Gregory about her amorous escapade in order to cross the river, Gregory cast her aside with disdain. Heartsick and rejected, Abigail turned to Slug with her tale of woe. Slug, feeling compassion for Abigail, sought out Gregory and beat him brutally. Abigail was overjoyed at the sight of Gregory getting his due. As the sun set on the horizon, people heard Abigail laughing at Gregory.

Before teachers try to teach kids about racism maybe they need their own lessons on how to teach racism - hint: this isn't it
==================================================================================

Another school under fire tonight for a Black History month exercise gone wrong.

This time it's Shepherd Elementary in Northwest D.C., where a kindergarten skit had youngsters split into black and white groups, with children allegedly encouraged to say, "we don't like black people."

The kindergarten teacher had the youngsters re-enacting a civil rights era lunch counter protest. The children split into black and white groups, with white children refusing to serve coffee to black children. "May we order some coffee?" reads a script. "No, get out of here."

On an app the teacher uses to communicate with parents, reaction was swift: "I'm not sure about the skit," wrote one parent. "Splitting the kids up by race and having them play antagonistic roles based on their race might be causing some confusion, and risks creating division where none existed before." "Whoa. I had no idea they were being divided this way and doing a skit," wrote another.

"I think it's unconstructive and unhealthy for 5-year-olds to role play racial antagonism against their classmates or be on the receiving end of that," wrote a third. "And I don't think that's in the spirit of celebrating Black History Month."..................….

There is no possible way I can answer that without knowing if the women in that group are hot or not
