    Just because literacy tests were racist in practice in the US doesn't mean they have to be racist in the future. Gingrich could easily spin this as a call for higher educational standards, especially with younger voters who don't remember how these tests were perverted by racist state governments. Lord knows we do need higher educational standards, especially in history. Well, especially in everything, but the crap that gets taught as US history in too many K-12 jurisdiction . . . Texas, anyone?
