CSULB student says this exam question about gangs was racist. Was it?

The question read:

“Which of the following gangs generally do the least graffiti?”

The possible answers to the multiple-choice question were: “A. Black. B. Asian. C. Hispanic. D. White.”

I think this story is kind of questionable.

Honestly I’m not surprise because they endorsed those candidates that loss in the midterms. Maybe this article is meant for or geared towards their core subscribers who think the same. (I don’t know)

I usually don’t say anything about journalism. But I find it kind of tasteless.

If I would of wrote an article about college it would be the following:
- the requirements to get into a UC or Cal state
- community college transfers
- how much does it cost to go to college these days 

I believe the goal is to get more active readers/viewers on the web. It would of helped parents/students and others curious about the college process.
