PROF. ROCHELLE GUTIERREZ. MATH IS HARD. GET RID OF IT.
Pick a topic. Any topic. Claim that it promotes white supremacy. Throw in the usual jargon. Send to a leftist journnal.
Voila! It’s published.
You get a 4 to 8 percent raise and mucho pats on the back from your fellow pepper bellies.
A math education professor at the University of Illinois argued in a newly published book that algebraic and geometry skills perpetuate “unearned privilege” among whites.
Hey dumbass lady professor, you fergittin’ them thar gooks?
Huh? Ya fegettin’ them?
Our Asian friends get more of that nonexistent fairy dust you call “unearned privilege” than we whites get.
Rochelle Gutierrez, a professor at the University of Illinois, made the claim in a new anthology for math teachers, arguing that teachers must be aware of the “politics that mathematics brings” in society.
“On many levels, mathematics itself operates as Whiteness. Who gets credit for doing and developing mathematics, who is capable in mathematics, and who is seen as part of the mathematical community is generally viewed as White,” Gutierrez argued.
Are you blind, madam? Haven’t you noticed the Asians walking around with their plastic pocket protectors and slide rules?
The Asians aren’t white, for your information.
Gutierrez also worries that algebra and geometry perpetuate privilege, fretting that “curricula emphasizing terms like Pythagorean theorem and pi perpetuate a perception that mathematics was largely developed by Greeks and other Europeans.”
Uh, it was developed by Europeans, although not with a total monopoly on mathematical reasoning.
Math also helps actively perpetuate white privilege too, since the way our economy places a premium on math skills gives math a form of “unearned privilege” for math professors, who are disproportionately white.
“Are we really that smart just because we do mathematics?” she asks, further wondering why math professors get more research grants than “social studies or English” professors.
Solution: You nonwhites get in there and study math. Then when you’re math professors you too can get more money.
Are you aware, madam, that the IQ level of professors in different fields varies and that higher IQ people tend to earn more. I doubt that you’re one of them with a high IQ. In fact, I strongly suspect you’re one of the affirmative action hires.
Further, she also worries that evaluations of math skills can perpetuate discrimination against minorities, especially if they do worse than their white counterparts.
“If one is not viewed as mathematical, there will always be a sense of inferiority that can be summoned,” she says, adding that there are so many minorities who “have experienced microaggressions from participating in math classrooms… [where people are] judged by whether they can reason abstractly.”
Some races are more intelligent than others. I suppose, madam, that in your world a bad grade on a math quiz is a “microaggression.”
Really, madam, you’re making the case that whites really are the superior race. Although you seem not to want to talk about Asians because that wouldn’t be politically correct, would it.
To fight this, Gutierrez encourages aspiring math teachers to develop a sense of “political conocimiento,” a Spanish phrase for “political knowledge for teaching.”
Gutierrez stresses that all knowledge is “relational,” asserting that “Things cannot be known objectively; they must be known subjectively.”
How would you like to be a white person taking a class from this ignorant jackass!
Pass the dunce cap on to Professor Gutierrez. I think it will fit her perfectly.
