SAINT CLOUD — Here’s a black history lesson fo’ yo’ azz! The Building Brains Academy — a daycare center in Saint Cloud, Florida — is under fire after photos surfaced that shows a white student putting handcuffs on a 2-year-old black girl as part of a re-enactment of the Rosa Parks fiasco. You can’t make this stuff up. The white student also fingerprinted the little girl who just happens to be the only black kid in class. Mom and dad are pissed. “Her hands restrained behind her back as if she was being taken into custody,” the father told reporters. “I was just like, ‘There’s no way they’re doing this in a 2-year-old classroom. It was our daughter who had her hands restrained behind her back by another child wearing a police vest. What I keep reliving in my mind is the look on our daughter’s face.” Social media reaction was venomous.
One commenter wrote, “This is a damn shame that they think it’s okay to do this crap to a baby.”
Another chimed in with, “Seeeeee!!!..if that was my kid, they would be taking me out in handcuffs! That’s so f*cked up.”
A third person added, “Well, KKK is part of the alphabet.”
NEW: The NAACP is calling for an investigation after a white child was photographed handcuffing and fingerprinting a 2-year old black girl for a Rosa Parks reenactment at a Florida preschool.
The parents say their daughter is the only black child in the school.

The NAACP has gotten involved. “We consider the activity an inappropriate trivialisation of a significant historical event, insensitive to the struggles against segregation, and psychologically harmful to all students involved, especially Black students reenacting such a traumatic moment in American history,” the NAACP wrote in a letter to the school.
Paola Rosado, the preschool’s owner, wrote a letter in response.
“The photos of the class activity do not offer a complete or accurate representation of the full lesson about the importance of equal rights,” Paola wrote.
“Our school believes in and teaches the importance of equality, of standing up for our rights, and of speaking up when we see something isn’t right.”
Mom and dad pulled the little girl out the school.
Watch them express their disappointment.
