Meanwhile, Here In Charlotte...

...they be tryin to figure out if baby got back.

A Charlotte mother is expressing concern after a class assignment she considers offensive was given to high school students. Some say it has racial undertones.

“I was completely stunned,” the mother said. “This is not appropriate language at all for the children in the school.”

The question was from a test on genetics.

"LaShamanda has a heterozygous big bootie, the dominant trait. Her man Fontavius has a small bootie which is recessive. They get married and have a baby named LaPrincess" the biology assignment prompts students.

The assignment then continues to ask, "What is the probability that LaPrincess will inherit her mama's big bootie?"

Ardrey Kell High is what is euphemistically known as an inner city school. There's no indication of the race of the teacher who originally came up with the worksheet, or even the teacher who used it in this case.
