Wow.A mother has blasted a Washington middle school after her 14-year-old twin daughters, who are black, were made to clean freshly picked cotton during a history lesson.
Emzayia and Zyeshauwne Feazell, 14, said that they were the only black students who had to participate in a cotton picking lesson plan at Sacajawea Middle School in Spokane.
The girls told ABC News that on May 3 their social studies teacher pulled out a box of raw cotton and told the class they were going to do a 'fun' activity.
The teacher then instructed students to clean freshly picked cotton as part of a classroom assignment to see who could do so the fastest.
The sisters, who were the only black students in the class, said the lesson made them feel uncomfortable.............
