    "A Connecticut mother has filed a human rights complaint against the Hartford school system after her daughter was made to participate in a slavery reenactment that included a nighttime "raid" in which students had to hide in the woods from their "white masters" and were called racial slurs by adult supervisors.



    Sandra Baker told the Hartford Courant that her daughter, who is African-American and was 12 years old at the time of the trip, was "terrorized" during the class trip to Nature's Classroom in Charlton, Mass.".* Cenk Uygur, Ben Mankiewicz, Michael Shure and John Iadarola break it down on The Young Turks.
