    There should be an algebra test before voting, that would stop people like Obama from gaining power.

    You probably don't like the word Algebra, considering it's arab and all.

    So seeing as such was the reason for literacy tests back then is the same reason he would suggest it now.

    So are you saying he is a racist?

    All things done back then are done for the same reason now?

    Are you sure?

    Literacy is not the issue, the issue is some people want to disfranchise voters. I figured some people would remember this country's history and what the literacy test has historically been used for. Why some want to go back to that is just sad.

    And while you bother with how Obama is speaking at every single moment of his life to make sure his pronunciation is correct, I'll be focusing on the real issues.

    Nice try, what he said was we need people who are litterate in American civics. Anyway, it's not like he suggested that Obama should be serving him coffee or anything like that.

    You don't know your history.

    The entire existence of the Literacy Test and it's usage was to disfranchise black voters. And you seem to think it's a good thing.

    I don't know whether he is racist, I know at the very least he's ignorant.
