Yesterday, the ladies of The View took time during their Hot Topics panel to discuss the use of slavery in a math question for 3rd graders! The story out of Georgie BLEW up in the news this week as the school's acceptance of such racist practices has fueled a lot of anger from parents, students and people nationwide.

The internet and computer giant DOES still have a heart! Google just donated $11.5 million to help combat modern day slavery!

Two of the orcas are in SeaWorld Orlando and the other three are at SeaWorld San Diego. Poor babies!!
