White Privilege?: Black 2nd Grader Drags Kid Twice His Size Across Playground, Loses Tug-of-War Because of White Teacher


Facebook user Your Business Needs LLC posted video May 20 of a Black student and a white student engaged in a friendly match of tug-of-war as part of the students’ second-grade field day.

In the video, the Black student — who is half the size of the white student — managed to pull the white second grader to his side and declare a victory for his blue team.
