"An Illinois teenager has been sentenced to two years of probation for posting a Craiglist ad in which he offered to sell a Black classmate as a "slave."

The teen, who was a 14-year-old freshman at Naperville Central High School at the time of the incident in 2019, must also complete 100 hours of community service, after pleading guilty to two counts of felony hate crime and one count of misdemeanor disorderly conduct, Chicago’s CBS affiliate reported Wednesday.

"The boy will also be required to undergo individual and family counseling as deemed necessary, and to submit a DNA sample to the State of Illinois," according to the station. "On Nov. 14, 2019, the boy took a photo of his classmate while at school and then posted an ad on Craigslist with the photo, and the caption, ‘Slave for sale (Naperville)’ along with an offensive racial slur, prosecutors said."

The teen’s Craigslist post also referred to his Black classmate a "Hardworkin thick n*gger slave."

"Images of the listing, which has since been removed from Craigslist, sparked widespread outrage in recent days, reopening wounds for the community that is still recovering after a separate racist episode at a local Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant in October made national headlines," the Washington Post reported in November 2019.”
