Asking Students to "Show Their Work" Is Not Just Racist But Risky

'How likely is LaPrincess to inherit LaShamanda's big bootie?' School pulls 'racist' science question after outcry
'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.' After asking students to show their workings, two questions were asked: 'What is the probability that LaPrincess will inherit her mam's big bootie?' 'If LaShamanda and Fontavius have another child, what is the probability that it will have a big bootie?' [HT: DeWitt]

Ask Moochele. She and Barry are a classic Punnett square problem/solution.

Bootie huh? And all this time I thought it was booty (i.e. plunder) derived from the usual way the male half of this culture gets it.

Just looks like a big fat ass to me. Not even Hottentot. Reminds me of Bertha Butt and the Butt Sisters.
