I was handicapped in the last question because the closest black member of congress is 2 states away. Since I couldn't think of an obscure pick I was hoping people would think Rangel was Puerto Rican.

I apologize: I assumed Pharoh was being incredibly racist at first.

There were only two unique answers:

George Washington (Mordred, who brilliantly continues going for the obvious answer)
John Adams (arminius)

All other answers were non-unique. And two of them were surprisingly non-unique.

Amazingly, no one said Abraham Lincoln, Rutherford B. Hayes, or Millard Fillmore.

wishbone, if you're reading, I'm just kidding. Your answer of Ulysses S. Grant was unique.

This means that Franklin Pierce had...

In the interest of fairness and beginning the game's healing process, Toru Kamikawa has decided that the answers from the first round are NOT incorrect.

Okay, I have to exit soon, and think I might have to defend this next answer.

Birrman's, Nick Danger's and Tracer Bullet's scores change from 12 to 3 ("Property").

Funkpie, Red Dog, and feenst all get a score change from 12 to 0 for "Right to worship", "Blink eyes" and "Free Speech" respectively.
