An elementary school in Waxhaw, North Carolina, displayed pro-slavery hashtags on the classroom wall as part of a fourth-grade Civil War assignment, prompting criticism and an apology from the school system.
A photo of the billboard, posted on the school’s Facebook page, featured hashtags like “Slavery For Life” and a made-up account called “Don’t Stop Slavery,”
One comment made from the nonexistent account @dontStopSlavery said, according to Fox 46: “You may not agree with slavery but I do and I’m honest about it. SlaveryForLife.”
Another comment from the made-up account “Confederate4life” said: “Why do we need to leave the county. We can stay and our slaves! SLAVERYFOREVER.”
Waxhaw Elementary School asked students to write tweets as Civil War figures, and displayed them.
The tweets used hashtags like “Slavery For Life” and “Slavery Forever.”
The school district apologized and called the assignment “unacceptable.”
