A video game IS NOT the way to discuss this with elementary kids. My guess is this is a cheap trick by a SJW teacher who knows everything.


Why not??? At least they'll pay attention to it this way.

No different than Oregon Trail. That didn't really teach anyone what it was like to Wagon Trail either. It just approximates it to some degree. Same here.

Besides, kids aren't playing it to learn anyway. To them it's a game. Just like every other War game out there which should be equally disturbing to you.

Slavery is not a video game. It seems to cheapen the injustice done. This is not Oregon Trail.
The material in the game is not elementary level info, you know the slave beatings and all.

Either you can teach about slavery in an honest way, or not. If they plan on teaching about it you have to include the truth or why bother??

These are elementary school kids, how much teaching "honesty" do we do? And when the school does not know how the kids were playing slave games tells a story in it's self.

Slavery was not a game, this approach trivializes the subject.

So it's not the school using it then.

So what's the problem??? Who are you mad at???

The kids apparently took it upon themselves.

These were unauthorized uses in the elementary school.

You are guessing at how these games were being played, my guess is a teacher was allowing this. And yes it is a guess.

Again the subject of a video game for grades 1-5 should not be slavery.

The video game includes random slave beatings. This is not elementary school materiel.


confederate statues include nobody getting beat or enslaved but apparently we have to get rid of them.people are retarded,it must be all those GMO`s they are eating.

It's a game that uses historical references in it's play. It has multiple kid perspectives ie; a Native American, a a young Jewish girl Immigrating and the Slave storyline that I know of.


.....Remember these are the same kids sexting each other and taking photos of their junk to send to their boyfriend and girlfriends that you don't even know about. The same ones who run over hookers and beat people up to streak their cars in GTA.

I think this tiny little game won't harm them much.

So you like it, and that means everyone elses kids should undergo the program?

Do you not see the supremacism of that logic?

I disagreed with the statement that was quoted.
Nothing more.

If you want to stuff that statement with whatever ignorant assumptions you can come up with go ahead. I hope you don’t regret your abhorant level of ignorant behavior on your death bed.

this is OK? but a harmless statue of a confederate soldier needs to be done away with? People are insane!


There is no need for a confederate statues in public(except meseums). However there is a need to show the mistreatment of people throughout history. This game is just a bad way to do it. At least, in my opinion.

Well, on the otherside of the argument, schools have been known for dumbing down history. Columbus was a hero that founded America (a continent with people already on it). It was only till I was an adult that I started learning the truth of history.

yeah you`re probably right, it`s probably far more damaging to kids to see a confederate statue displayed in public than it is for them to play a virtual reality game (in a public school ) which actually allows them to OWN a slave.
seeing statue might cause them to ask questions but actually owning a slave is far better and removes all those ucomfortable questions,that liberals don`t want to answer.
