A controversial question given to students during a practice test for a math final at Bellevue Community College has students — and others — shaking their heads because of its lack of racial sensitivity….
The question read: “Condoleezza holds a watermelon just over the edge of the roof of the 300-foot Federal Building, and tosses it up with a velocity of 20 feet per second.”
The Condoleezza question went on to ask when the watermelon will hit the ground, based on a formula provided.
We’d like to know: If it takes the president of Bellevue Community College 5 seconds to walk 10 feet, and the teacher’s classroom is located 300 feet from the president’s office, how long did it take for this math teacher to get fired?
(As it turns out, the professor didn’t get fired. Instead, he “apologized and requested cultural sensitivity training.” Which is pretty much the first time in human history that someone requested sensitivity training.)
