HERE A LINK TO A LITERACY TEST... THEY WERE NOT WHAT YOU THOUGHT... EAMPLES OF ONES IN THE LINK...


Presented as a means for assessing whether voters were educated enough to vote, literacy tests and other methods were designed for a single purpose: to stop Black Americans from voting.

The last slave to be freed was Alfred Irving in 1942... Because of WW2 and Japanese propaganda

Read the article and take the test... can you pass it? Remember one wrong answer and you fail...
as i've never been (or intent to be) a us citizen why would i? especially the state centered questions are no way in my knowledge to be answered properly

... btw, that was supossed to be below the belt - your belt
