Write civil rights upside down and then cross out every letter

Now that the Supreme Court has thrown out the Voting Rights Act, Slate publishes a pre-VRA literacy test that Louisiana used to keep black people from voting. I know i couldn't get every answer right in the 10 minutes allotted but as Atrios says, the real issue is that you were graded by a white poll worker so it really didn't matter.

It's also worth noting that the literacy test wouldn't pass the literacy test. See question #30 for example.
