‘Bootie’ question on high school assignment angers mother

This is the story that YOU wanted to hear us talk about! It received 50 percent of the vote in our Radioactive poll!

With all the talk about Kim Kardashian “breaking the internet” and the subsequent responses by Kathy Griffin and others, the topic of “booties” are on the forefront of people’s minds.

It is also on the forefront of a North Carolina high school’s biology assignment.

A worksheet included a question that begins, “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.”

It goes on to ask, “What is the probability that LaPrincess will inherit her mama’s big bootie?”

One mother was not too thrilled with the question, as she told Charlotte’s WBTV.

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

The unnamed teacher apologized after the mother questioned the teacher’s motives for assigning that question.

“I had asked the students to pick two of the remaining questions on the worksheet and did not necessarily assign that particular one,” the teacher said. She continued, “I apologize if it offended you or your child.”

The school district has since taken the worksheet “out of circulation” and told its teachers to stop using it.
