Flint Journal:

A Saginaw-based radio station has yanked a mock test off its Web site that reportedly ridiculed Flint School District students through a series of disparaging questions involving gangs, Ebonics, and out-of-wedlock pregnancies. The general manager at WHNN-FM (96.1) said the page was taken down shortly after it appeared and the matter was being handled internally. "We have apologized to everyone who has reached out to the radio station via phone calls and e-mails," said Chris Monk of the classic hits station. But a source with the Flint School District who did not want to be identified called the episode "a Don Imus matter," referring to the uproar caused by derogatory comments the famous radio personality made about the mostly African-American Rutgers women's basketball team...
