Would-Be Arizona Governess Katie Hobbs Organized "Slave Auction" Of Freshmen in High School, In Which Seniors "Bought" Slaves and Held Them On Leashes, As Their "Masters"

Before you say, "So what? It was high school" -- what would they say if this were Kari Lake?

Make them live, and die, by their rulebook.

I think the Ralph Northam Caveat to the rule against blackface will apply in this case.

What do you think?

EXCLUSIVE: How Arizona's Democratic Governor candidate Katie Hobbs organized her high school's 'spirit week' - where students took part in a 'slave day' and bid for younger students to perform 'degrading' tasks

Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs is running for governor this year uncovered yearbook photos that show Hobbs was a student leader while her high school held a 'Slave Day' tradition

The student council page with her face on it says the student leaders coordinated Spirit Week events - when Slave Day appears to have taken place

It went on for longer than Hobbs' tenure so it's highly likely she was aware

The tradition involves freshman 'slaves' following orders from senior 'masters'

Seton Catholic Preparatory School yearbook photos also show freshmen were able to buy seniors as 'slaves' in an 'auction' at another point

One photo shows a student restraining another with a leash

Arizona Democratic gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs was a student leader at her Catholic preparatory high school when pupils took part in a yearly tradition known as 'Slave Day.'

Copies from past yearbooks of Seton Catholic Preparatory High School were obtained by and appear to show the practice went on for nearly four decades and was last mentioned in a yearbook from 1997.

Hobbs, who played an active student body role as a member of the yearbook staff and student council for part of her tenure, went to school there from 1984 through 1988.

The tradition entails freshman students performing tasks for senior class 'masters' that included performing 'embarrassing acts of servitude.'

One example from the 1985 yearbook, which would have been the end of Hobbs' freshman year, describes 'slaves' in her grade 'wearing unbecoming hairdoes and unbecoming outfits, sporting embarrassing signs and performing embarrassing acts of servitude for senior masters for a day.'

Note that that is just a description from a yearbook in Hobbs' freshman year -- she organized this as a student leader when she was a senior. There just aren't as many quotes available from that yearbook.

It's not clear if Hobbs participated herself in the 'auctions,' but her 1987 Student Council page credits her and the other student leaders for having 'coordinated the many class events during Spirit Week' - when Slave Day appears to have been celebrated.

She would have likely known the tradition was celebrated and regularly featured in the Seton Catholic Prep yearbook when she joined its staff in 1987.

The 1987 yearbook mentions 'Slave Day' four times.

An accompanying image shows a student on their knees while wearing a collar and leash led by what appears to be a fellow classmate.

Yearbook images show seniors are also 'auctioned off' for a couple of dollars to freshman students.

One portion from Hobbs' senior class yearbook refers to her grade 'paying for cruelties rendered' during freshman initiation week on a day called 'Senior Slave Day.'

Another image shows a white female student with what appears to be black paint streaked across parts of her face. has reached out to Hobbs' campaign for comment via email three times but has not heard back.

Seton Catholic Preparatory High School also did not respond to inquiries about Hobbs' participation or whether the 'Slave Day' practice is still ongoing.

One student wore partial blackface.
