This isn’t even a one-off kind of thing.

We’re amazed not only that someone thought this “reënactment” [sic] featuring a bunch of white people pretending to be slaves was a good idea, but also that someone filmed it and the New Yorker decided it was worth sharing with the world.


Pro-tip for woke white students thinking about pretending to be fugitive slaves: Don’t. Just … don’t.
