Must not mention slavery

Parents of students at Windsor Hills Elementary School in Los Angeles are outraged after second-graders at the school received a math homework assignment last week that contained a word problem with racial undertones.

NBC News reports that students received the following word problem as part of their math homework:

The master needed 192 slaves to work on plantation in the cotton fields. The fields could fill 75 bags of cotton. Only 96 slaves were able to pick cotton for the day. The missus needed them in the Big House to prepare for the Annual Picnic. How many more slaves are needed in the cotton fields?

Karol Gray’s 7-year-old granddaughter had questions about her homework assignment Thursday and showed it to her mother. Gray said she was shocked at what she saw.

“Although it has racial undertones, I feel the worse undertone is, ‘What are we teaching our children?’” Gray said.

Windsor Hills is a gifted magnet school known for its math and science programs.

I’m sure it’s no coincidence that a homework assignment with a problem regarding slavery was given to young black students during Black History Month.

Is there anything that you can write that doesn't look like it was written by a first grade student?

When it comes to commenting, what can be worse than a person claiming some sort of superiority and yet being totally lacking in education and critical thinking?

The victim mentality is the reason that black people can't develop into mature citizens. The left are applying the same victimhood to Hispanics. When is this racism going to stop and allow all students to develop together without inherited racism? This is more divide and conquer by the left, their usual practice. When will racial minorities wake up and realise they are being played as useful idiots by the left, something practised by the left since the inception of the Democrat party?

It is so cute when your only response is to call someone a "pinhead."

Isn't it ironic that on a site where you constantly whine about censorship, when you are challenged, your always tell people to shut up?

Perhaps you should re-evaluate your thought process.

Oops! My bad. I assumed for a moment that you had a thought process rather than just some warped Pavlovian response.

The bigger question is how many of the little darlings answered the question correctly.
