Not racism - math in it's "finest form" does not lie. You lose.

The math sections are the only parts of the SAT's that are truly objective. Cultural biases remain entrenched in every other section. You need to keep the income of communities (by race) in mind. Economic disparity in black communities is largely a result of segregation, and is reenforced today by standardized tests like the SAT's. Remember: standardized tests are directly rooted in the eugenics movement, the notion that these tests are not culturally biased is largely ill-conceived.

Economic disparity? Then why do whites, asians, and others who are of similar origins still seem to find a way to score high on these tests. How long can a group of people cry "poor me"? The Irish in the early 20th century suffered from economic disparity, now they've integrated into society, and score just as high as whites/asians. Why cant blacks do the same? Don't cry "economic disparity", read a bit about genetics.
