Black Middle School Teacher Does The Unthinkable To Black Students For Ridiculous Reason

The only black teacher in a Bencia, California school is under fire for segregating black students into an assembly about civil rights. She also gave the students a survey.

The school superintendent appears to have not known about the assembly. She also claims the teacher’s actions were ‘well-intended’. How is it the principal of the school didn’t know?

How exactly is it ‘well-intended’ to segregate black students to show a film about civil rights? It’s 2015, many people, including whites, fought for civil rights. All students should understand the history of this country, no matter what the color of their skin. 

Officials at a Benicia school were doing damage control Tuesday after a well-intentioned teacher held an unauthorized Black History Month assembly, inviting only African-American students to attend.
“It looks like segregation. Certainly does. It was,” Benicia Unified School District Superintendent Janice Adams said. “I understand how it looks and I’m very sorry for that, because that’s not the impression that we want to give about our school.”
Adams said the teacher at Benicia Middle School who organized the assembly did it without clearance from the school.
“She really is a great person and she made a judgment call that wasn’t good,” Adams explained. “I do believe her intentions were good. She made a bad decision.”
The teacher is the only African-American teacher on Benicia Middle School’s campus. She talked to KTVU off-camera, explaining she held the assembly to address growing concerns about use of racial slurs like the “N” word on campus.
She showed a short YouTube clip about education and the Civil Rights Movement, and handed out a survey about racial attitudes. She said she thought students would be more open to talk if they were among other African-American students.
