A Maths Quiz That Manages to be Racist and Sexist

mobile-county-racist-math

Racist! Sexist! Vile! Take your pick.

Below are some of the insanely grotesque questions asked of students in an actual math test:

 

  • Ramon has an AK-47 with a 30-round clip. He usually misses 6 out of every 10 shots and he uses 13 rounds per drive-by shooting. How many drive-by shootings can Ramon attempt before he has to steal enough ammunition and reload?
  • 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?
  • Dwayne pimps 3 ho’s. If the price is $85 per trick, how many tricks per day must each ho turn to support Dwayne’s $500 per day crack habit?
  • Tyrone knocked up 4 girls in his gang. There are 20 girls in the gang. What percentage of the girls in the gang has Tyrone knocked up?

 

The teacher has been put on administrative leave. I hope we never see from him/her again.
