    Officials in a North Carolina school district have pulled a class assignment in a genetics test that referred to a "big bootie."

    WBTV in Charlotte reports the test was administered Nov. 3 at Ardrey Kell High School. One question referred to "LaShamanda" with a "big bootie" and her husband Fontavius and his "small bootie." It said the two had a baby named LaPrincess and asked about the probability that she would have "her mama's big bootie?"

    One parent complained, calling the language inappropriate. She said her daughter felt uncomfortable with the question.

    Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools officials said in a written statement the worksheet didn't appear to be created by the school system and has been removed from circulation. They also said teachers have been asked to stop using it.
