FULTON COUNTY, Ga. -- A Johns Creek school is apologizing over a racially-insensitive political cartoon included in a lesson on the Civil War.
The cartoon was given to eighth-grade students at River Trail Middle School in a packet about the Civil War and Reconstruction, according to Fulton County Schools spokesperson Susan Hale.
The drawing, with the caption "Worse Than Slavery," depicts a Ku Klux Klan member shaking hands with a White League member over a black family. It also shows what appears to be a lynching and has the words "This is a white man's government."
