Seattle Schools document say math is oppressive, US government racist

"At its core, the belief seems to be that “western” math is viewed as the only “legitimate expression” of math identity and that it’s used to “disenfranchise people and communities of color” and, consequently, it “erases the historical contributions of people and communities of color.”"

This one is even better:

"The entire “Power and Oppression” portion of the framework truly is a thing to behold. Its “Essential Questions” section asks “Who holds power in a mathematical classroom?” “Who is Smart? Who is not Smart?” and “Can you recognize and name oppressive mathematical practices in your experience?” And then most appallingly: “Who gets to say if an answer is right?”"

I know the title of that article is written wrong

"We built pyramids before Donald Trump even knew what architecture was. We taught philosophy and astrology [sic] and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it…Do some cracker come and tell you, ‘Well my mother and father blood go back to the Mayflower,’ you better hold your pocket. That ain’t nothing to be proud of, that means their forefathers was crooks."

So math is racist but school leaders deciding that minorities are too dumb to know how to add and subtract isn't? If that attitude doesn't sum up how radical liberals view minorities then I don't know what does.

No, you see it’s perfectly ok to point out fake racism, by using actual racism’s

If you want minorities to understand math, you need to use a relatability topic; i.e. drugs and how to break down a package (a kilo of H), add cut and figure your profit.

Failure should never be an option and ass beatings for those that fuck up.
