Video footage shows a Virginia public school teacher bullying a student for saying he takes a colorblind approach to observing people. 

A school teacher in Virginia’s Loudoun County Public School district — one of the wealthiest districts in the nation — was caught on tape telling a student that it is important to see racial differences when observing people. 

For a class assignment, the teacher posted a photo of two females, one with white skin and red hair and another with black skin and black hair. Students were asked to observe what they saw in the picture. 

One unnamed student responded by saying he saw “just two people chillin’.” The teacher called the student “intentionally coy” for not categorizing the women by their race.
