georgia school teaches math with racist math questions
a georgia school gave 3rd graders a quiz with racist questions involving slavery and beatings
The question read, "Each tree had 56 oranges. If eight slaves pick them equally, then how much would each slave pick?"
Another math problem read, "If Frederick got two beatings per day, how many beatings did he get in one week?"
Another question asked how many baskets of cotton Frederick filled.
"I was furious at that point," one father said.
"This outrages me because it just lets me know that there's still racists," said Stephanie Jones, whose child is a student at the school.
"Something like that shouldn't be imbedded into a kid of the third, fourth, fifth, any grade," parent Terrance Barnett told WSB-TV. "I'm having to explain to my 8-year-old why slavery or slaves or beatings are in a math problem. That hurts."
"In this one, the teachers were trying to do a cross-curricular activity," Gwinnett County school district spokeswoman Sloan Roach said.
Roach said the teachers were attempting to incorporate social studies into math problems.
"We understand that there are concerns about these questions, and we agree that these questions were not appropriate," she said.
in some towns in georgia north carolina and really all over the south racism is still alive and being tough to children..by racist parents
but to have racism taught in schools too? takes it out of the realm of parental responcibility and puts the blame on the school and county
