Bill Gates Funds Math is Racist! By James Reed
Is there any woke politically correct bs that Gates is not into? And the irony of a computer gurus funding a math is racist program.
“An effort to portray traditional styles of teaching math as being non-inclusive is gaining steam, in part courtesy of the billionaire co-founder of Microsoft—as is mockery of the effort.
The latest example of the latter is a screenshot of the Equitable Math curriculum that is supported with a $1 million grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to The Education Trust Inc.
The screenshot making the rounds on Twitter is an image of the EquitableMath.org website that begins with: "White supremacy culture shows up in math classrooms when... The focus is on getting the 'right' answer."
That's followed by a paragraph that reads: "The concept of mathematics being purely objective is unequivocally false, and teaching it is even much less so. Upholding the idea that there are always right and wrong answers perpetuate objectivity as well as fear of open conflict."
Newsweek reached out the Gates Foundation, asking if it agrees with those assertions and asking it to explain their exact meaning. The group confirmed the donation but was unavailable to comment further.
The super-capitalists may come to regret bringing down Western civilisation, when unexpected black swan events lead to the end of their profits and power. They are not going to last long in a Mad Max world, and there is no way off this planet, sustainable in the long term yet.
