It never ends

Here's a question from a 4th grade math class in a Georgia elementary school.

"A plantation owner had 100 slaves," the question read, according to the station. "If three-fifths of them are counted for representation, how many slaves will be counted?

A fucking math class for christ's sake. What the hell century do these people live in. I've all but given up hope for the human species.

Here's the link to the story.

1. The link in the OP covers a few other race-related outrages in Georgia schools.

My guess is that Georgia is not the only place this happens. Nonetheless, imo, it's pretty obvious that the school curiculums are being put in place by bigots.
