If White Catholics in Massachusetts really do score 261 in NAEP math at the 8th grade level, this would completely explain their failure to understand Economics 101, keeping Edward Kennedy in power for 30 years longer than he should have been, and their inability to objectively respond to simple questions like how Building 7 could have collapsed into its own footprint and why they’re so obsessed about 6 million holocausted jews when  44 TIMES as many Christians as jews died.

This is a score lower than the average for American Indians, only 11 points higher than the average for Hispanics, and only 19 points higher than the average for blacks.  In fact, Hispanics in North Dakota actually score 3 points higher.
