Caribbean Fever - Your ONLY destination to all things Caribbean and more

Take the impossible literacy test given to black voters...

...This test was given to black voters in Louisiana in the 60's. You had ten minutes and one wrong answer is a failure.

This test isn't easy for anyone, because the questions are ambiguous.

I would be shocked to see anybody on CF get them all right. Most people will not get number 20 right nor 28, lol.

Yes, the test is easy for those of us who can read and write, just imagine the pressure our people must have felt during that time. Trying to complete this bullsh*t test within ten minutes while keeping in mind that one wrong answer meant it's over had to be torture to say the least...Back then although Black folks were openly treated worst than animals, they were determined to fight and die if necessary for the right to enter thru the front door of any business, sit and eat at the front counter of a restaurant, drink from the same water fountain as anyone else, and using the restroom of your choice, etc., etc., etc.

Its not hard, its i makes you think... it's that simple....



It’s not that you think it’s simple but, I doubt you can finish it in ten minutes and at the time given conditions people had to go through. So it’s not that simple.

whats soo hard about the test ?  the question is who have time for all that s***>?


It’s no surprise to me that you don’t understand so I’ll take a few minutes to explain. This test is what was wrong with this country dealing with black folks who some gave/lose their lives for the right to vote, making it possible for you to come/immigrate here and enjoy this country.

This is so ambiguious, no matter what you put down you will fail. I bet the creators of the test don't know the answers..
