TWO BLACK TEENS APPEARED IN A “TWO SLAVES FOR SALE,” CRAIGSLIST AD

There has been an increased rate of racial discrimination against minorities within the past year or so and only seems to be getting worse.
To add fuel to the fire, two African American students at a Clay County District high school, found themselves at the center of a cruel and sick joke, when a photo of them appeared alongside an AD looking to sell two black saves for $470, First Coast News originally reported.
This AD was first discovered by Lexis Potter when she was just just browsing through Craigslist and had stumbled upon a photo that displayed two black students sitting at their desk with a caption that made her stomach drop.
In a recently deleted Facebook post, Potter expressed how awful it was to see such an AD, describing it as “sick, disgusting ‘joke’ and a horrible reflection upon this school and students.”
One of the teens in the photo, a current senior at the Fleming Island High School, who found out about it through SnapChat, said “I never thought somebody would do this to me. I had friends texting and calling me.”
Faye claims that this isn’t the first racial incident that’s occurred at her school, stating that the words “whites only,” were found scrawled above the toilets of her school’s bathroom, and noted that the administrators at her school did not do a single thing about it.
School officials from the Clay County District Schools released a statement where in it they wrote “We do not tolerate this type of behavior and we are disheartened that any of our students would be subject to discrimination.”
The school district is looking to implement a plan of action that would help strengthen the school’s diversity, according to the Superintendent Addison Davis.

 

AN ONLINE PREDATOR POSING AS JUSTIN BIEBER ASKED CHILDREN TO SEND NUDES

Police are stressing the importance of parents monitoring their children’s online activities closely, warning that there are online predators posing as celebrities on social media in an attempt to lure children in.

According to College Candy, Detective Inspector Jon Rouse, who runs task force Argos, a specialist branch responsible for tracking online child exploitation in Queensland, Australia, reveals that “Identity assumption by child sex offenders is increasing quite steadily.”

BBC News reported that Detective Rouse had led a recent investigation in which a 42-year-old man posing as Justin Bieber on his social media accounts, persuaded children to send him nudes.  He was eventually caught and has been charged with over 900 child sex offenses.

“The fact that so many children across the world could believe that they were talking to Justin Bieber and that Justin Bieber would make them do the things that they did, is really quite concerning,” Rouse told BBC News. “I think a re-evaluation of the way we educate children about safe online behavior is really needed.”
Asking to conceal her identity, the mother of an eight year old girl told BBC News that a predator had messaged her two days after downloading a newly launched social media app.

“The first message was inviting you to enter a competition and to win it you get a five minute chat (with the celebrity),” she said. “And then the second message that came up was along the lines of ‘all you need to do is send me a photo of you naked or of your vagina.’ And then all these messages flew across the screen. Then the third message said ‘don’t worry about it. All the girls are sending me these photos. Just do it. It’ll be our secret’. And then the last message was ‘do it now,’” according to College Candy.

Rouse stressed the dangers of Musical.ly – a social media platform that was launched in 2014.

This app that allows people to upload 15 seconds of themselves singing, has attracted a significant number of child sex offenders to “groom children.”

It’s “a very well-known international fact, believe it or not,” he said.
