Head Quarters a.k.a. Tête de Nègre

Examination Black

The following pages are designed to ascertain the applicants true nature relative to the Quintessential Black Identity Quotient or QBIQ.  In a time when so many people have adopted Black identity as a means of divorce from stale White Culture (or other similar ethnic divorces) it has come to our attention that distinguishing the true Black from the aspirant Black has become increasingly more difficult.

The word Nigger, for example, has been corrupted by over use (and blatant mis-use) amongst those of non-Black Heritage. Hip-Hop Culture, it seems, has inadvertently fostered an environment which has given license to the non-black to think, act, speak, look, sound, walk, dress, dance and refer to Blacks and non-Blacks alike, as “My Nigga.”  Issues such as this cannot be ignored or overlooked any longer.

Thus, our work has become even more painstaking in the order of maintaining what we believe to be the true essence of Black.  The importance of defining a true African-American identity has never been more urgent. Black culture, as we see it, is in a state that we find to be most disturbing.

Those who pass will be registered with the Certified Black Identity Community (CBIC) and will theretofore enjoy certain enviable and exclusive Black Social Benefits (BSB).  Also, passing applicants will be granted an official CBIC Membership Card that entitles them to the aforementioned BSB‘s (further details provided to the passing applicant only).

Those found to be of false Blackness will also be registered.  A CBIC member card will NOT be granted to those individual who post an insufficient score.  However, those wishing to re-take the exam may do so after the four-year Black List period has expired.  This period begins on the day this exam is given.

Please read each question carefully.  Any question not answered will result in an automatic disqualification.  Cheating or attempting to cheat will result in an automatic lifetime ban from Black Culture.  The committee has all encompassing authority to enforce the rules and guidelines put forth in this text.

Post-exam enforcement will be determined by several different covert agencies and compliance with their actions is expected.  Any person found to be attempting to “pass as Black” will be theretofore relegated to a permanent state of Negative-Black Individual (NBI). Their status will be registered with the Committee for the Enforcement of Certified Black Identity (CECBI).

Results will be tallied and you will learn your score once you’ve completed and submitted your answers. Explanations will also be provided.

Those wishing to proceed may do so at this time. Those who wish to abort may do so now and will be subject to the aforementioned four-year Black List period has expired.

You will be re-directed to the top of this page at the end of the exam. Scroll down to this section to review your results.
