The SAT was created by a eugenicist determined to prove the inherent inferiority of black Americans. He was forced to retract earlier results of a test he engineered to help the Army segregate recruits and later came to disavow the SAT, too. So, yeah, thanks but damage is done.
****One day y’all will see on full display everything I’ve learned reporting this damn book. When I finally finish this damn book.
Turns out if you want to design a test that will prove white superiority and justify maintenance of racial and class hierarchies, then the “objective and scientific” test you design will do just. Go figure.
All you exceptional-ass black people telling me how great you did on the test so it can't have been biased are actually revealing how simple & inadequate has been your education on how racism/structural inequality work. Kudos for doing well on the SAT! Do you feel validated now?
This is like saying Barack Obama was president so clearly racism no longer exists. Ok. Thanks for playing.
