Topic - Sorry you've got the wrong ethnicity?

Virginia has set new goals for tests based on broad ethnicity groups:

Here's what the Virginia state board of education actually did. It looked at students' test scores in reading and math and then proposed new passing rates. In math it set an acceptable passing rate at 82 percent for Asian students, 68 percent for whites, 52 percent for Latinos, 45 percent for blacks and 33 percent for kids with disabilities

I'm confused, would I be more or less likely to understand if I wasn't white?
