He nailed the assignment.

http://baltimore.cbslocal.com/2016/04/18/tension-builds-at-high-school-after-essay-may-consider-racist/

The controversy started earlier this month when a student’s satirical essay—said as a response to racism would be to send African-Americans to the Sahara to be killed.

That was the student’s response to a classroom assignment, which was supposed to mimic an author from the 1700s.

An author from the 1700s? Let me guess; Jonathan Swift.



If I recall correctly not everyone got his satire in his time either.

It is that delectable sort of style that is indistinguishable from the authentic thing. In modern terms, he is an epic troll, in the style of Swift, or Voltaire.

Gotta hold on to that power that's been building, at all costs.

In a statement, the school system said, “The difficult but honest conversations underway at North County High School will not produce instant satisfaction. This is an ongoing process, which will require the dedicated effort of students, parents, staff and community members to produce lasting positive results.”

African-American will be considered a derogatory word for African-Americans if it is uttered by a white person. Just give it time.

Not Baltimore - Anne Arundel County, near BWI.

Horribly written article - this one's a little better.

At least 2 sides to this story.  Yes, it was written as satire and may have addressed the assignment.  However, it also probably straddled the line to offensive.  If that's all it was - who cares?  But it wasn't just sent in as an assignment - it was shared on social media.  So as long as the student was trying to get people talking, that part worked.
