Every year I encounter Africans embarking on the road of enlightenment. My warning to them is to recognise when they believe they are spreading the words of Africentric wisdom they'll come to realise they're actually throwing corn after slave and bubu class Africa. Most blacks would take these lessons on how to be a slave master on board with no issue believing the knowledge will make them equal to whites.

This is an outrage. The school should be investigated and forced into special measures. The teacher who developed this lesson plan should be sacked

This lesson plan cannot be deemed acceptable. The premise that it highlights the unacceptable face of slavery is absolutely contra to the strategic challenge required of the students. The challenge promotes racism without any evidence of contra argument or ethical/moral consideration.
