This is completely ridiculous. I was exposed to this test during my first semester of Psychology. Yes, I found it offensive and highly racist, but that WAS THE POINT. It is supposed to be used as a learning tool to show how bias these test can be. You would thing that AP students and parents would have more sense than this. I guess we are okay with continuing to dumb down America so we don't ruffle any feathers.

Stuff like this makes me realize just how ignorant people in this county are.

So instead of addressing the problem head on, we run and hide. How will a solution ever come if people aren't willing to admit to the problem?
People have the right to live life the best way they can,(within the law and common sense) with or without various peoples being a part of that life. I don't have anything at all against people of color yet for the last several years, people of color act like because a person is white, they are the devil's spawn. I don't know how to break it to people, but just because someone's white doesn't mean they or their ancestors owned slaves. Why must every white person continue paying for the sins of others? I am truly sorry that there were and continue to be people in this world who can't see beyond skin color to the truth of who a man or woman is. It is not right for us to treat each other like enemies because of suspicion. Can we get beyond the skin and see the heart and soul of a person instead please?
say what?

It's called reverse discrimination but the whites are not protected by federal laws. You can't erase history as they seem to try but we could learn from our errors, discuss the mistakes made in the past and move forward united but those days will never happen. Blacks are as racist as white yet no one complains when they do it.

Why is it acceptable for blacks to discriminate? Why is it acceptable for anyone to discriminate for that matter? It looks like it would be straight across the board or not at all?

Sadly discrimination exist on both sides however the consequences are not equal. Yes, it would be nice if the world moved beyond discrimination but hiding the facts of the past does not erase the events that occurred.

The PC appears to be more important than education in Caldwell County. The teacher is suspended for three days, has to apologize to the students for using the decades old test and the chitling test is permanently banned in Caldwell. this was decided in a Scopes type Monkey trial . Next week, we will burn books and a few witches.

West Caldwell High School is probably the only school in the history of NC to have let a math teacher go because his students EOG scores were too high. They claimed his excellence made the other teachers look bad. ---No kidding

From what I understand, the teacher in question is a big liberal. With the Chitling Test he was most likely promoting the myth that black test scores are lower on average because standardized tests favor Whites.

The reality is that blacks are genetically predisposed to having lower IQs due to thousands of years of living in tropical climates where it takes much less ingenuity and innovation to survive. Human races native to colder climates evolved at an advanced rate due to a more difficult level of survival. The Sun People vs The Ice People; it's the greatest story never told.

So the irony here is the policies of Cultural Marxism that this "educator" at West Caldwell has supported are the very ones that are being used against him.

The recent contest in America to see who can project the most White Guilt has now reached Caldwell County. How sweet it is to see the PC Mafia cannibalize one of its own.... right here in my hometown.

THE DOVE COUNTERBALANCE GENERAL INTELLIGENCE TEST
Also known if somewhat less delicately as the ďChitliní Intelligence TestĒ, the Dove Counterbalance Test was designed by Black sociologist Adrian Dove, in 1971, and is used for instructional and educational purposes and to also highlight that so-called IQ tests generally rate the knowledge of people who grew up cognizant of the information that particular IQ tests covers. Intelligence quotient tests seek to find the level of capability the test subject has on certain kinds of information and knowledge, but, many IQ tests reveal the weaknesses of cultural bias that lurk in so many IQ tests.
The Dove Counterbalance Test is based on Black American specific history and knowledge. The test requires knowledge on the familiarity of Black American community life in the 1950s and 1960s.
Created to test oneís knowledge of Black peopleís food, culture, traditions, history, language, attitudes, and lifestyles, the test shows that IQ tests divulge a dissimilarity in peopleís cultural backgrounds.
What may be known as a breakfast nook to many White people, as well as a bidet, may be something unknown to many Native Americans, Asian Americans, Latino Americans, and Black Americans.
What may be known to many Black Americans as talking out the side of your neck, and the dozens, may not be known by many other non-Blacks.
Some IQ tests are visual and spatial, as well as verbal and mathematical. The following IQ test item, is modeled after items in the Ravenís Progressive Matrices Test:

SOURCE
Other IQ tests are as follows: Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale,(aka, WAIS Test); Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children, Stanford-Binet, Woodcock-Johnson Tests of Cognitive Abilities, Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children, and Ravenís Progressive Matrices (take the test here.)
IQ tests can also contain cultural influences that reduce their validity, especially in any supposed cultural fairness of the test when given to groups of people not familiar with the tests, creating what is known as Stereotype Threat. Claude Steele discusses stereotype threat.
Some IQ tests, such as the WAIS, cannot measure the cognitive ability of some groups of people such as children suffering from autism; or, groups not familiar with the cultural and linguistic modes of American and Western Europe society, such as the Khoi and San people of South Africa. On the other hand, if the Khoi and San people devised a test for non-San people, I am sure many of us would fail it miserably.

Professor Amy L. Wax on the "The Diversity-Validity Tradeoff"
(One can have diversity or one can have competence; not both):

"Because blacks lag significantly behind whites on measures of cognitive ability, most valid job selection criteria will have a substantial adverse impact on this group. The combination of well-documented racial differences in cognitive ability and the consistent link between ability and job performance generates a pattern that experts term 'the validity-diversity tradeoff': job selection devices that best predict future job performance generate the smallest number of minority hires in a broad range of positions. "

The teacher asked if anyone didnít want to take this test. They told the students that it may be offensive to some. There is no reason why people reacted the way they have. It was a history lesson on how things have changed in society since then. The teacher should not be punished for this! It is a college level course, if a student were to take this in college it would be not be a big deal. If you were not in the classroom how can you be a judge of this teacher? Who are you to judge them?

It shouldn't be acceptable, but the reason it is is because of the past.

Living in the past is a dangerous thing and very pathetic. The fact is very few people exist now who actively experienced discrimination on a large scale and those that do are fairly elderly. Blacks using it today use it like a crunch and therefor become less and less able to make it on their own merits. They are in a sense reversing everything their grandparents fought for. At the same time they are drawing the ire of more and more people of the opposite races. The short of it is that most whites have moved on beyond issues of race in this day and in a sense are growing tired of hearing about it from blacks. The scales of justice were tipped back in favor of blacks on a whole after the civil rights movement but now the current generation is set to destroy all that was achieved in that time, they are their own worst enemies now. I guess they found out being equal wasn't all it was cracked up to be, its more fun to be special and different.

What is racist, the test? Yes it is and that is what it was designed to be when it was created by a black man in the 60's. It was a sarcastic test if you want to really dumb it down and the teacher who is a liberal was using it as an illustration about racism in the civil rights era. What is funny is race baiters and other modern day liberals in this area were too stupid to realize what he was doing so in essence you morons crucified one of your known for fighting for your own cause HAHAHAHAHA, enjoy dumb ass's. Whats worse is the school superintendent who makes well well over 100,000 a year to do nothing was too stupid to catch on and immediately knee jerked under pressure of the black community who was also fooled. got to love it when ignorance bites the liberal crusaders in the ass.

Living in the past is a dangerous thing, I agree. But you need to keep in mind that if you push away the past it has the possibility of repeating itself. That is what people are afraid of.

You are right but I have to wonder why blacks can't seem to remember that they were sold into slavery by their very own people. Why don't they have equal hate towards them for doing that. If you really want to get historic human slavery wasn't just a black white thing it's been around since the beginning of time being used as a way of payment for goods, debts and services by almost every civilization known to exist.
