Racist? I do find it odd that the SAT describes a 16-year-old not getting a Land Rover “unjust”, but racist? Spell it out for me.
not seeing the rascism, unless of course its racist to refer to a minority as benign..
The racism is in the fact that the answer to number 2 is not (A) Reputable and Identifiable.
They are implying that the upper-class cannot Identify with the minority candidate because they are all white.
These samples have got to be a joke, right?
I’ll point out the racism for those who don’t see it:
1. Most people wouldn’t consider a father not buying his daughter a car unjust but frugal since cars are expensive(unless you’re in the rich Caucasian demographic)
2. Calling a minority benign (I’m guessing)
12. IDK (Maybe cuz its an organic food store)
5. Should be obvious(i.e. pliates, farmer’s market, and coffee shop are associated with white demographic as well)
6. Maybe the tuition aspect
I think that its not the fact that its “blatant” racism so much as it is hidden racism in the aspect that the questions seem like there directed at suburbanite Caucasians more so than the general audiences
“5. Should be obvious(i.e. pliates, farmer’s market, and coffee shop are associated with white demographic as well) ”
THAT is racist? Would it be more fair to ask “On the way to visit her sugar daddy in jail, Jaquisha has to stop at KFC, the unemployment office, and her crack dealer. In how many different orders can she complete these errands?”
I didn’t realize that only white people drink coffee and consume produce… *rolls eyes*
It should be Whole Foods is. Because whole foods is a brand name. A person who is not familiar with whole foods being a brand name, or speaks English as a second language, might not know whole foods is. When we pluralize food into foods, then it is correct to say “foods are” What type of person might not be familiar with Whole Foods? Exactly.
Its the questions that are racially preferential, not the answers. We dont now what was given as the correct answer.
We don’t know what the reading was for 2 but I think it was “responsible” for him to not buy a land rover. we do not know the persective or context of the question. But certainly everyone cannot afford a land rover. If the reading was told from the point of view of a whiny brat than ‘unjust’ could be correct, if from the point of view of a wealthy environmentalist than it responsible. If its from the perspective of the dad it could be frugal.
Many people cannot identify with parents affording tuition. This might depress a minority student and help them choose not to apply to college.
Math #5 makes no sense to me at all. How many errands is he doing? I am white and I dont even understand the question. Good luck getting a minority too.
The minority candidate is simply bizzare.
It is clearly preferential. But the writers of the questions themselves may be aloof.
I see no racist context anywhere. I’m white and the land rover thing is not even close to racist. I know no one that owns one, black or white!!! I grew up in the west burbs of Chicago. lol Who comes up with these crap accusations??? I looked this up to see if its true that black students that take the SAT get 20 points just because their black… Is that true??? If it is then that’s racist!!! And YES there is racism aganst white ppl. I lived around Chicago and saw it all the time. Just remember, that if you cry wolf all the time. Eventually no one is going to listen to you ever again. Stop being a victum and get over this BS already!!!
