2 + 2 = 5: Now math slammed as 'racist,' 'western'

  • So... when will enough be enough...


    NEVER... it"s not about education... not anymore...

    it's about control... it's about brain washing... it's about endoctrination...

    the more the masses listen and do as their told... the better for those in power...

    IMHO those people hired to teach at these schools need to be removed/fired/disqualified... and replaced with someone NOT so concerned with PC BS...

    Some may regard mathematics as a last bastion of academics immune to political correctness, or "wokeness," as some prefer.

    But an advisory committee wants to warn students in Seattle Public Schools that they have been victims of a racist system that has used math as a tool of oppression, reports Jason Rantz, an afternoon host on KTTH radio in Seattle.

    The novel approach to the discipline comes from a preliminary "Math Ethnic Studies Framework" produced by an Ethnic Studies Advisory Committee under the Seattle Public Schools superintendent.

    The proposal laments that "western" math has been viewed as the only "legitimate expression" of math identity. It's been used to "disenfranchise people and communities of color" and, consequently, it "erases the historical contributions of people and communities of color."

    It wonders, "Who gets to say if an answer is right?"

    The premise is that math has been manipulated to allow inequality and oppression to persist.

    "Who is doing the oppressing?" the proposal asks.

    Rantz comments: "Ironically, if you subscribe to this social justice world view of math, and teach anyone that there's no such thing as correct answers, you will be doing immeasurable and, yes, oppressive, harm to students."

    He points out the companion U.S. History Ethnic Studies Framework declares "the United States government was founded on racist intellectual premises and economic practices that institutionalized oppression of people of color that continues to the present day."

    Seattle Public Schools responded to Rantz's request for comment.

    "The ESAC is made up of a number of educators and was created due to a legislature mandate to 'advise, assist, and make recommendations to the office of the superintendent of public instruction regarding the identification of ethnic studies materials," the district said in a statement.

    Dietrich Bonhoeffer: “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil. God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”

    Presbyterian Rev. Gilbert Tennant:

    “He that suffers his life to be taken from him by one who has no authority for that purpose, when he might preserve it by defense, incurs the Guilt of self murder since God has enjoined him to seek the continuance of his life, and Nature itself teaches every creature to defend itself.”

  • So the Seattle schools superintendent is an idiot. Well I for one am not surprised by this revelation.

  • They've claimed this a few times over the years. The horse left that barn long ago though. Education has already been reduced to the lowest common denominator. Oooops, more of that racist math.

  • You left one out: If "one" is still "one" that is:

    F) All of the Above

    Coercive collective action in the name of the greater good not only is immoral—who decides who has the gun?—it also is destructive of human happiness and ruinous of human potential.

  • You guys are cavemen.

    All of the above is implied. There are no incorrect answers. Only the white devil would sneak in incorrect answers. Everyone gets an A as % grades are extra racist.

  • Wait! WAIT!! I got it!!

    2 boys + 2 girls = A Foursome!!

    Go ahead....Check my math...
