54.

But, much like the author of this quiz (https://www.splcenter.org/fighting-hate/extremist-files/individual/charles-murray), the test seems a bit racist to me. You think a lot of black people in the inner city know who Jimmie Johnson is or go fishing?

It seems like Murray decided that his redneck cousin represented "real" America outside the bubble, and decided to tailor a quiz towards him.

His redneck cousin would do pretty poorly on a quiz that asked who ASAP Ferg is and how many times he's ridden the bus to work, but those weren't the questions he asked. He chose pickup truck ownership and military rank recognition.

They talked about this on the MMM forum:

NO....F'ing WAY!  You're shitting us, right?  Who da thunk?!

Glad to know you think it takes a redneck to know and respect military rank?  Nice.....

Interesting that's what you got out of my post.

When did I ever say anything about respecting the military?
