Mathematics is Racist, So Ban it Now! By James Reed

     This topic, even the same theme has been covered by my colleague in the League, nice pun that, Brian:

     Anyway, to add to his critique, there have been more recent squawks about mathematics being “racist.” Hell, what isn’t racist nowadays?! Just name one thing that a Leftoid has not uncovered secret racism in? It is a great industry, keeping the lower IQ academics in articles and on the gravy train, just like crude conspiracy theories like feminism:

“Is Seattle really teaching that “math is racist”? Why did parents start to see ideas for math lessons that go far beyond numbers and into questions of identity? These and other questions erupted on Twitter last week, shortly after Seattle Public Schools released a draft of new learning objectives that integrate ethnic studies into math, and after conservative news outlets began berating the district. Seattle schools are in the process of developing ethnic-studies frameworks for different subjects, including social studies and art. Other states, including Vermont, Oregon and California, are already creating K-12 materials that prioritize the experiences of communities of color. But while some school districts are only building stand-alone ethnic-studies classes, Seattle is also rethinking existing courses to be taught through an anti-racist lens. In a U.S. history class, for example, histories of oppression, institutionalized racism, community organizing and resistance can be worked into the lesson plan, said Wayne Au, a professor at the University of Washington, Bothell, who has helped lead Seattle’s ethnic-studies initiative. In math, lessons are more theoretical. Seattle’s recently released proposal includes questions like, “Where does Power and Oppression show up in our math experiences?” and “How is math manipulated to allow inequality and oppression to persist?”

     They should not wonder why the Chinese are destroying their schools at mathematics, and it is fitting too. Those who live by diversity, perish by diversity.
