A test question on a final at Cal State Long Beach outraged students this week. Students were asked to pick the racial group of gangs least likely to do graffiti. 

The test question written by health science lecturer Matt Fischer asked students to choose out of four racial groups - Black, Asian, Hispanic and White. A photo of the test is circulating and students are calling it racist and insensitive.
