A school in Texas came under fire over a student assignment that likened law enforcement officers to slave owners and Klu Klux Klan members.
The assignment, which was given to an 8th-grade social studies class at Cooper Junior High in Wylie ISD has since been removed, included a political cartoon. It showed five different images of men with their knee on the neck of a black man. In the first four pictures, the black man is depicted as saying “I can’t” and in the last “breathe,” a reference to what has become a political slogan associated with the deaths of black men Eric Garner and George Floyd in police custody.
