Offset Won’t Be Charged in His Recent Phone Smashing Incident.

Remember when that fan approached Offset at a checkout line while putting his phone in his face to record a video? Turns out Offset won’t be charged for smashing that fan’s phone.

A New York Private School Teacher Responsible for a ‘Slave Auction’ Has Been Fired.

The mother of one of the Black students involved in the incident detailed via email what happened at North Elementary School in the Watertown City School District.

“He and another African American child were put up in the middle of the class and told they were now slaves,” Nicole Dayes wrote to CBS affiliate WWNY-TV. “The teacher then started the ‘bidding’ by assigning prices to the Caucasian students. After the winning bid was placed, my son was then told how slaves would take the slave owners last name and what he was to call the slave owner by.
