    ACT Scores Steady but Show Signs of Small Progress - ABC News

    Well, what can one say. The data speaks louder than anything I can say.

    Yes because ACT scores are the only possible way to judge an entire demographic's progress.

    Disingenuous much?

    Yeah I generally don't buy into such stats and theories.

    Paints too many with too broad a brush. It's not a difference in race, it's a difference in thinking, reasoning and logic. Race has absolutely nothing to do with it. If you're intelligent, you're intelligent, regardless of how dark your skin is.

    Why indeed. I personally am against affirmative action. It had a purpose 30 years ago, but now It's simply archaic and unnecessary. The Man is no longer keeping Black people down. There's no need for such a crutch in this day and age.

    The Black community is better than that.

    It certainly does. It's a shame that that's as far as the conversation ever gets.

    The real conversation of this topic should be, how do we get these scores higher?

    someone who is incapable of properly pluralizing a noun in english, like you for example, should probably keep his fucking mouth shut about the intelligence of others.

    fuckwit racist is obvious
