New [PC] Immigration Test is Out.

Th new immigration test has been unveiled.... Thomas Jefferson is OUT, Martin Luther King is IN.

About 42 civics questions were dropped or revised to reach the final 100. Among those that were dropped was, "Who said 'Give me liberty or give me death?'" The answer is Patrick Henry, a colonial American revolutionary.

One question that survived the cut is "What did Martin Luther King Jr. do?" Among the possible answers are: Fought for civil rights and worked for equality for all Americans. King was awarded the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize for his civil rights campaign in the United States.

Test Questions I find PC-

1) What group of people were taken to America and sold as slaves?

2) What did Susan B Anthony do?

3) What movement tried to end racial discrimination?
