A group of school students in Texas have been disciplined for setting up a "Slave Trade" messaging group that ased prices to their black peers.
Messages shared on the Snapchat app at a school in Aledo said one student was worth a dollar and another " bucks", the New York Times reported. The school district conducted an inquiry and found "racial harassment and cyber bullying" had occurred. But some parents accused authorities of failing to respond appropriately. School students at the Daniel Ninth Grade Campus in Aledo had posted messages on a group Snapchat that was reportedly labelled with terms such as "farm" and "auction".
Ninth graders are typically 14 or One message said the price set for one student "would be better if his hair wasn't so bad", according to the New York Times, which said it had seen screenshots of exchanges. The Aledo independent school district, situated about 32km 20 miles west of Fort Worth, condemned the students' behaviour in a statement on Monday, saying that its investigation had been conducted in co-operation with the police.
The principal of the Daniel Ninth Grade Campus of the Aledo Independent School District, Carolyn Ansley, said the investigation had found that "racially charged language" had been used in violation of the district's code of conduct. However, some parents have since criticised the district's response.
What gives them the right to think they can do that to someone else? Another parent, Ella Bullock, said she was "disappointed" that the district's condemnation "stops short of calling it hate speech".
