    if I were Black. Apparently, I am not smarter than a fifth grader either, at least not enough so to finish the test in ten minutes. And there is an awful lot of wiggle room left for the scorers in that test, an awful lot. For example, in qjuetion 24: is "wow" a word or an exclamation, therefore not permissible as an answer?

    An organ donor saved my life!

    EVERYTHING that is wrong with America starts with the Republican party, who have been strip-mining the middle class and blaming it on black people since Lee Atwater.

    •  I wondered (0+ / 0-)

      I was curious what was meant by that question as well.  Eventually I came up with toot which seemed safe.  But I wonder if 'bod' works or 'peep' though I assume both couldn't work.

      Also at the last question when it said both 'write' and 'print', I got concerned that write meant cursive in which case I would have failed hard most of the questions.
