Well that I agree with. But somehow I think we might have different ideas about who those people are.

Nothing to do with test scores but more to do with the absolute pig ignorance demonstrated by a sizeable number of Americans on issues both domestic and international.

Good examples would include electing Trump, the success of the Fox News network and threads such as this one.

It would of course be worth noting that the people responsible for that are not the people who go through the school system but those who run it. I don't have the numbers but I'd be surprised if those in charge are predominantly non-white.

White Americans and Europeans Murder at about the same rate


Europeans clearly held the lead in this regard, up until the last hundred years or so..
