Obama Effect On Black Students Test Scores

BarackObama-at-NotreDameThis is almost better than my ‘Obama Kool Aid Drinkers’ post, now recent study found that African Americans scored higher on standardized tests, if they were reminded of Obama’s accomplishments before the test , meaning –>Black people taking a test becomes smarter if you mention ‘OBAMA’ , on the flip side White’s must become smarter also if you mention the accomplishments of a white people. Asian’s become smarter also if you mention the accomplishments of a Asians.

Who in the hell did this test? Dr. Ray Friedman of Vanderbilt University, poisoned by the ‘Obama Kool Aid’. Friedman found that black students achieved higher scores on standardized tests when they were reminded of Obama’s achievements before the test, suggesting a tangible effect of Obama’s presidency. Dr? if a person study, they get better results, regardless of who is president, mentioned, or honored. If this is the case, African Americans IQ’s must have blown the roof off of schoos when Obama was elected, no black child should have failed a grade this year, and no black child will fail a grade for the next three years because a teacher will have the magic word ‘Obama’ to increase their academic level. I guess David Ehrenstein’s was right calling Barack the “magical negro”, well at least Friedman think so.

Look at the past five months into Obama’s presidency, and ask yourself, has black people gotten smarter? How many black children flunked a grade or classs? Now ask yourself would this have happened if Obama was not elected president? See Obama Kool Aid Drinkers, and I’m adding Obama Dust Sniffers, will do and say anything to make Obama ‘supreme’.

Friedman said the students who earned higher scores likely overcame “stereotype threat” — a fear that one’s performance will confirm an existing negative stereotype of a group with which one identifies, resulting in psychological discomfort. Friedman are you saying that being BLACK is a psychological discomfort? If so, I have been a psychological discomfort all my life, maybe this is the reason Obama Kool Aid Drinkers and Obama Dust Sniffers feel uncomfortable around me. I Don’t Need The Mentioning Of A Black Person To Achieve Anything. If a black person has to be motivated by mentioning the success of other black, then something is wrong with the though process of that person. Many Blacks have made achievements years, and years, before Obama was born, (oh hell I forgot, he was prophesied in the ‘Tomb of Qar’).

Friedman claimed that blacks are far more likely to score below their potential when asked to identify their race on a test, meaning he reminds a black person that he/she is black before to test, meaning being black is a psychological discomfort, according to Friedman. Friedman tested 400 subjects and came to this conclusion, 400 people, look at the results, the median score for whites was 12.14 of 20, while the median score for blacks was 8.79 of 20. After Obama won the presidency, whites scored 11.9 and blacks scored 9.83. Dr. Joshua Aronson of New York University,found “absolutely no results” to support Friedman’s findings. Aronson tested a diverse sample of 160 college-aged students from various demographics over half of whom were black. Aronson expected a noticeable effect in test performance, but he found none, suggesting that black students might not identify with Obama’s success. At least somebody has some sense here.

What do you think?

    Empty, I cannot add anymore, you said it all for me. Those are great points about past achievers before Obama. Obama may add motivation to some to strive, but im not excluding the past Black that has achieved. With you I do believe study hard will get better results.

    I DONT FOLLOW THESE TEST, HOWEVER IF THE UNEDUCATED CAN BECOME EDUCATED BY ACHIEVEMENTS OF OTHERS IN A CERTIAN RACE, IT SEEMS TO BE FOR THE BETTER

  1. Emptysuit, wow. Great post. I do agree with the comments above, and wonder as well about persons of “color” be it black or otherwise from our history and currently, lest we discredit their PREVIOUS ACHIEVEMENTS. Ok, what this says to me is, possibly, lately black students are studying more. “Friedman tested 400 subjects and came to this conclusion, 400 people, look at the results, the median score for whites was 12.14 of 20, while the median score for blacks was 8.79 of 20. After Obama won the presidency, whites scored 11.9 and blacks scored 9.83. Dr. Joshua Aronson of New York University,found “absolutely no results” to support Friedman’s findings.”

    warrantonegirl, thanks. When I see these studies, I start wondering, why are they comparing races, why try to see who is smarter. A high grade is a high grade regardless of color or who you were thinking about before the test. How they should conduct a test like this is to let people take the test, and ask them what they were thinking after they turn the test in. Im sure none would say ‘Obama’ they would probably say, ‘getting a high score’. Thanks, again.

  2. Yes, that is very true. I thought the whole test etc. had a racist tone.

  3. According to Bow Wow’s who is ciara dating 106 & Park interview, he and Ciara are history and I think who is ciara dating that she may have been the one to end things because he seemed a little bitter about it. I don’t know who she is dating now. That photo of her on Nelly’s bedside on that Over and Over Again video did cause me to think of the possibility of a relationship between Nelly & Ciara but it was after that that she went public with her relationship with Bow Wow. Yesterday on 106 & Park, Lil Fizz (formerly of B2K) hinted that he would be interested in dating Ciara. Rocsi was sure to call him out on that. Ciara is probably weighing her options and playing it cool right now. She may not who is ciara dating be dating anyone.

  4. Who ever so this person really is (who is definitely NOT you) and who keeps on dreaming of matching up Raven with such god awful gangsta rap like artists like “Lil’ Wayne” and Omarion is really outta their mind.

    Raven is proudly not emulating who is Raven Symone dating the Jonas Brothers for their “pure” lifestyles…sure, she’s older tham them(and maybe doesn’t listen to their music),date some such immoral folks can like those two rappers!

    Also, Raven dating Evan Ross(Diana Ross’ oldest son), now that would be a MORALLY better match!
