A first-grade class comes in from recess, and the teacher asks a little girl what she did outside.
“I played in the sandbox,” she says.
“That’s good,” replies the teacher. “Go to the blackboard, and if you can write sand correctly, I’ll give you a cookie.”
The girl gets her treat, and the teacher asks a boy wearing a turban what he did during recess.
“I tried to play in the sandbox, but everyone threw rocks at me,” he says.
“That’s blatant racial discrimination!” says the teacher. “And if you can write blatant racial discrimination on the board, you’ll get a cookie.”
