Parents and students at a high school in Dallas are outraged after a school assignment listed Kenosha gunman Kyle Rittenhouse as a 'hero for the modern age'.

Among those listed alongside Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old who shot and killed two Black Lives Matters protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last month, were activist Malcolm X and Mahatma Gandhi.

Also on the list were George Floyd, Cesar Chavez and Joseph Rosenbaum - one of the two men Rittenhouse gunned down. 

The assignment was given to seniors in an English class at W.T. White High School in Dallas, Texas, and had two parts; first asking students to write a biography for the six people listed and then asking them to write a one-page essay on which of those six people they believed best demonstrated the concept of a hero.

The assignment was posted on Google Classrooms with the names of Gandhi and Malcolm X misspelled. 

It sparked criticism among students and parents, with the older sister of one student in the class telling NBC Dallas she questioned the integrity of the assignment.
