Black Alabama Parents Fuming over Racist Math Quiz Highlighting Drive-by Shootings, Prostitutes and Drugs

A Mobile, Alabama parent is fuming over a 10-question math quiz her eighth grader took last Friday.

Erica Hall told reporters from Mobile’s Fox 10 that her son — who attends Burns Middle School — sent her a picture of the quiz as he was taking it. The picture revealed disturbing and graphic math word problems including:

“Leroy has 2 ounces of cocaine. If he sells an 8 ball to Antonio for $320 and 2 grams to Juan for $85 per gram, what is the street value of the rest of his hold?”

“Tyrone knocked up 4 girls in the gang. There are 20 girls in his gang. What is the exact percentage of girls Tyrone knocked up?”

Most of the questions revolved around topics such as prostitution, drugs and drive-by shootings.
Fox 10 reports that the teacher has been placed on administrative leave over the controversial quiz.

“They took it as a joke, and she told them that it wasn’t it a joke, and they had to complete it, and turn it in,” Hall said.

Since the incident, Hall and her husband went to the school to get answers.
