Parents in the View Park-Windsor Hills area of Los Angeles are outraged after a controversial homework assignment was given to second graders."When I read it I immediately told her she would not complete that assignment," parent Kelly Gray said.
The math assignment out of Windsor Hills Elementary School, which was posted on Facebook, used the words "slave," "master" and "cotton" in an assignment handed out to students during Black History Month.

"I don't believe anybody was being malicious but nobody was being cautious," Gray said. "Someone could have said, 'No! Are we really giving this assignment?' I can't image a month of any year of any era when this would be appropriate."
