Wow, this "quiz" keeps stereotypes about blacks alive and well.

Anonymous, it really aint that deep. Its just a silly quiz and they have all types of these... not just ones about black people... This quiz definitely NOT the cause of the evergrowing stereotypes in the African American community. We do that ourselves without any quizzes., and that's whats keeping it alive. Like certain uppity black folks that get to a certain level of fame or status in there life and choose to abandon the urban community rather than help rebuild it. First example that comes to mind. Ms. Oprah. We should start at the top with making these changes. Not with little rinky-dink surveys.
