Professor: Whiteness is Responsible for Black and Latino Poor Math Abilities

It never occurs to race-obsessed liberals that blacks and Latinos do poorly in math because of their brain structures, which affects their intelligence. In short, nonwhites often lack the ability to do math. I saw this, for example, with a college girl from Panama in the States to study, who was certainly not oppressed by whitey in her home country. She and many others admitted that she hated math because she could not easily do math. Her country is mixed race like her, so it’s hard to see how white oppression held her back in math.

Excerpt from The Atlantic

Dan Battey, an associate math professor at the Rutgers University Graduate School of Education, said he set out to synthesize for math educators the research literature from sociology, history, and other disciplines on whiteness—defined in the paper as “the ideology that maintains white supremacy, valuing one racial group over others.” He also sought to expose how whiteness operates in classrooms and schools, leaving black, Latino, and indigenous students disenfranchised mathematically.

According to Battey, there are ways in which math teachers, math educators, and math researchers “are perpetuating racism in schools”—which is shaping the expectations, interactions, and kinds of mathematics that students experience. And the lack of attention to whiteness as the fundamental cause leaves it invisible and neutral. “Naming white institutional spaces, as well as identifying the mechanisms that oppress and privilege students, can give those who work in the field of mathematics education specific ideas of how to better combat racist structures,” writes Battey and his co-author Luis Leyva, of Vanderbilt University’s Peabody College of Education.

“Whiteness is impacting how and where we see mathematics ability.”
One example of whiteness explored in the paper is how the relentless drumbeat from researchers about racial differences in math achievement is linked to racially differential treatment in math classrooms. The concept of racial hierarchy of mathematical ability—a term coined by Danny Martin, education professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago—basically says constantly reading and hearing about underperforming black, Latino, and indigenous students begins to embed itself into how math teachers view these students, attributing achievement differences to their innate ability to succeed in math.

As the theory goes, with white and Asian students consistently at the top of math-achievement rankings—and black and other nonwhite students continuously trailing behind—teachers start to expect worse performance from certain students, start to teach lower content, and start to use lower-level math instructional practices. By contrast, white and Asian students are given the benefit of the doubt and automatically afforded the opportunity to do more sophisticated and substantive mathematics. The consequences are classrooms where Asian students not excelling in math are seen as an oddity, and black students excelling in math are seen as an outlier.

For non-Asian students of color in math classrooms, one response to whiteness is to dis-identify with mathematics—telling themselves “I don’t care about math. Math isn’t important to me.” Similarly, students can begin to internalize the racial stereotypes surrounding math performance. A 2014 study published in the Journal of Research on Adolescence found that children as early as the fifth grade were acutely aware of the label that “Asians are good at math.” The report cautioned about “the pernicious nature” of this belief, and its effect on how students of all races view themselves as individual learners.

Liberals twist themselves into pretzels to come up with ridiculous theories that they purport to prove. There is no science here, just the smell of cow manure writ large.

Mestizo Self-Deports Over Fear of ICE Raids

IGNACIO GARCIA-PABLO. CLAIMS TO HAVE SELF-DEPORTED BECAUSE OF TRUMP.

The Trump effect has already been reported widely. Border crossings are down because of the small crackdown on illegals initiated by President Donald Trump.

This tale of a Central American illegal is unverified. It has the ring of truth about it, especially the illegal’s promise made in the last sentence of the story.

OPB.org

Ignacio García-Pablo, 21, came to America five years ago. It took him about a month to travel the more than 3,000 miles from Guatemala to Oregon, he says.

He rode a dangerous cargo train known to locals as La Bestia, or the Beast. Then he traveled by car and hired a coyote to smuggle him across the U.S.-Mexico border.

But he says it was worth it: there’s opportunity in the U.S. — something he doesn’t have at home, where drought, crime and political corruption have made prospering nearly impossible.

Mestizo Charged with Rape and Murder of Beautiful Young Christian Woman

ALLEGED KILLER BULMARAO MEJIA-MAYA AND VICTIM TIFFANY THRASHER.

It’s a reasonably safe bet that the rapist/killer of Tiffany Thrasher is an illegal immigrant from Central America or Mexico.

Trump’s Wall would have kept him out of the States. I have suspicions that once the whole truth comes out about him that we’ll learn that he has a criminal record in the States but was not deported.

If you follow these kinds of crimes, you’ll notice that pretty young white females are targeted by these filthy animals.

CBS Local Chicago

CHICAGO (CBS) — A 29-year-old migrant construction worker has been arrested in Florida for the rape and strangling death of a 33-year-old woman in her apartment in Schaumburg.

Bulmaro Mejia-Maya has been charged with first-degree murder, home invasion, and aggravated criminal sexual assault in the death of Tiffany Thrasher, Schaumburg Police Detective Cmdr. Kurt Metzger said Thursday.

Thrasher was found dead in her apartment at 2605 Clipper Drive on Easter Sunday. Police had visited the home after her friends requested a well-being check when she did not show up for church services.

Metzger said Mejia-Maya lived in a neighboring building in the same apartment complex, and had been living there for at least six months. Investigators do not know if they knew each other, but said it’s possible they had crossed paths before. One neighbor says Mejia-Maya and his friends would frequently sit on a balcony that had a direct line of sight to Thrasher’s apartment unit.

In a Facebook post, Thrasher’s sister, Misty King, called her “a loving, happy young lady,” and said her death was a “devastating loss.”

“She found her one true love in Jesus, she loved her church, her family, her canine children and her Chicago Cubs,” King said.

Investigators tied Mejia-Maya to the murder based on interviews and physical evidence. They learned he might have fled to Florida after killing Thrasher. U.S. marshals arrested him Wednesday night in Jacksonville.

Schaumburg detectives have questioned Mejia-Maya, who allegedly made “incriminating statements” after his arrest, according to Metzger.

Metzger said police believe the rape and murder was random.

“Right now we don’t have anything to believe that it was anything other,” he said.

Police earlier said investigators believe Thrasher’s killer got in through an unlocked window.

An extradition hearing has been scheduled for Thursday afternoon.

Metzger said investigators are reviewing more than 200 pieces of physical evidence, possibly including DNA.

It’s ridiculous for the police to call this murder random. The killer had seen his victim, stalked her, and waited for the right moment to strike. His reward will be life in an American prison, with a higher quality of life that he would never have in his native Central America.

One more thing. Since I know these kinds of monsters, there’s a very good chance that he raped the girl after she was dead. And probably did it more than once.

California Senate Leader: Trump Immigration Crackdown ‘Based on Principles of White Supremacy’

DEMOCRAT BEANER KEVIN DE LEON. BORDERS ARE RACIST.

A big shot beaner lectures the President of the United States on American values.

Ridiculous.

His kind are soon to be thrown upon the scrap heap of history. Culturally speaking, he would be a better fit with Mexico than with the USA.

Breitbart

California senate leader Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles) has claimed that the Trump administration’s immigration enforcement crackdown is based on the “principles of white supremacy,” after the federal government threatened to withhold $20 million in criminal justice grants from the state of California.

“It has become abundantly clear that Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the Trump administration are basing their law enforcement policies on principles of white supremacy — not American values,” de León said in a statement. “Their constant and systematic targeting of diverse cities and states goes beyond constitutional norms and will be challenged at every level.”

Sen. de León’s comments come after the Department of Justice warned the state of California that it could lose $20 million in criminal justice grants should it fail to enforce policies under the new administration’s immigration crackdown.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has repeatedly warned localities protecting illegals from deportation, known as “sanctuary cities,” that they risk losing federal funding should they fail to comply with federal immigration law. The administration is also publishing a weekly list of crimes committed by illegal aliens residing in sanctuary cities.

On a visit to the southern border on Friday, Sessions described de León’s claim as “kind of extremist statement that I totally reject,” urging jurisdictions such as California and New York to “reconsider” their position.

Meanwhile, Californian Assemblyman James Gallagher (R-Yuba) ridiculed it as a “ridiculous statement.”

“Nobody here is talking about the state becoming an immigration agency or doing ICE’s job for them. It’s about whether you comply with federal law,” Gallagher told The LA Times.

In February this year, de León revealed that “half [his] family are here illegally” under false documents and would be eligible for deportation under government policy. He then went on to push legislation making California a “Sanctuary State,” which prohibits state law enforcement agencies in California from cooperating with federal immigration authorities.

Now that we know that de Leon’s family members are illegals, let’s get on the ball and deport them all.

Murdering Mestizo Football Star Sentenced to Life Has Decency to Hang Himself in His Cell

REST GENTLY IN THE ARMS OF THE LORD, SWEET SPIRIT.

A new side of Aaron Hernandez, the former New England Patriot football star, was revealed a few minutes ago as this post is being written.

Hernandez, a truly violent, hateful, disgusting, disgrace to the human race, hung himself in in his cell while serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for murder.

Hernandez has just saved the taxpayers millions of dollars. What a decent thing to do. Kudos to him.

USA Today

Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was found hanged by a bed sheet in his jail cell early Wednesday, according to the Massachusetts Department of Corrections.

Hernandez, 27, was later pronounced dead at a local hospital, according to a statement released by the DOC.

The statement:

“On April 19, 2017 Aaron Hernandez was discovered hanging in his cell by corrections officers at the Souza Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley Massachusetts at approximately 3:05 a.m., lifesaving techniques were attempted on Mr. Hernandez and he was transported to UMASS Leominster where he was pronounced dead at 4:07 a.m. by a physician at the hospital. Mr. Hernandez was in a single cell in a general population housing. Mr. Hernandez hanged himself utilizing a bed sheet that he attached to his cell window. Mr. Hernandez also attempted to block his door from the inside by jamming the door with various items. The Massachusetts State Police are on scene and the investigation continues. Mr. Hernandez’s next of kin have been notified.”

Hernandez was serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd.

Last Friday, Hernandez was found not guilty for the double murder of two men on a Boston street in 2012.

Hernandez was at the Souza Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Mass, at the time of his death. He was found guilty in April 2015 of first-degree murder in the death of Lloyd two years prior. Lloyd, a former friend who dated the sister of Hernandez’s longtime fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins, was shot several times by the same kind of gun security footage showed Hernandez possessed.

Investigators began to probe the deaths of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado after Hernandez was charged in the Lloyd case. Abreu and Furtado were killed a vehicle after leaving a Boston nightclub in July 2012, weeks before Hernandez reported to Patriots camp ahead of his third and final season with the Patriots.

Hernandez, prosecutors claimed at the trial, became upset after Abreu and Furtado after they bumped into Hernandez at the nightclub. A jury, however, found Hernandez not guilty on murder charge Friday after six days of deliberations. Hernandez was convicted of an unlawful gun possession charge.

After the verdicts were read, Hernandez turned to Jenkins and mouthed, “I love you.”

“I am very, very happy” Jenkins told reporters as she exited court.

Hernandez, who grew up in Bristol, Conn, played with the Patriots from 2010-2012.

“We are aware of the reports, but I don’t anticipate that we will be commenting today,” Patriots spokesman Stacey James said Wednesday.

Dear sweet Aaron had so many good qualities. He was a good boy. He didnu nuffin. He was just … what’s the right word … MISUNDERSTOOD.

HIS FIANCE SHAYANNA JENKINS.

Trump Lays Blame for Crime Gang MS-13 on Obama

The Trump Tweet above is obviously true, but the press is distorting Trump’s allegation in order to smear him as reckless or a liar.

The MS-13 gang has spread all over America. It may not have started with Obama (Trump doesn’t claim it did), but it spread under Obama’s watch as Democrats were more concerned about welcoming illegals than fighting crime.

The Nation

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump on Tuesday blamed – without proof – his predecessor Barack Obama for allowing the MS-13 criminal gang to take root in US cities.

The MS-13, also known as the Mara Salvatrucha, is one of the criminal groups behind a wave of violence in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

The gang was formed in Los Angeles by Salvadoran immigrants fleeing civil war in the 1980s. The gang, however, remains active in the United States.

US officials deported several gang members in the early 2000s to their countries of origin – contributing to the explosive spread of crime in the region.

Domestic crime blamed on MS-13 include the murder of four Hispanic youths last week in New York state, as well as 11 people killed in Suffolk County, New York last year, including two teens murdered with machetes and baseball bats.

The FBI formed a special task force in 2004 – before Obama took office – focused on investigating and prosecuting MS-13 members. “The weak illegal immigration policies of the Obama Admin. allowed bad MS 13 gangs to form in cities across US We are removing them fast!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

In an interview that aired Tuesday on Fox, Trump said his administration has kicked out dangerous immigrants, though he didn’t specify that they were gang members. “I’m talking about illegal immigrants that were here that caused tremendous crime that have murdered people, raped people; horrible things have happened. They are getting the hell out, or they are going to prison,” Trump told Fox.

Trump claimed that “we never did anything about it, and now we’re doing something about it.”

Last week, Guatemalan authorities arrested two Salvadorans accused of being Mara leaders, while in neighboring El Salvador police confiscated money and weapons in a prison controlled by Salvatrucha gang members.

In March, police in Honduras confiscated high-power automatic rifles, grenades, pistols and cash hidden in a prison where Salvatrucha gang members were being held.

Breitbart reports that Attorney General Jeff Sessions has reached the same conclusion as the president: “lax immigration enforcement” contributed to the success of MS-13 during the Obama years.

Latino Trump Supporter to Run Against Stupid Negro Maxine Waters

Let us rejoice that Omar Navarro is on this side of the border if he can take out stupid Negro Maxine Waters, who represents a Congressional district in Los Angeles.

Prediction: The race will come down to demographics. Unless the Mexicans decide that their hatred of Trump is sufficient to get them to vote for a buffoon.

The Gateway Pundit

Maxine Waters has been in the news a lot lately because she’s constantly criticizing Trump. As a result, she has become a new darling of the left.

Now she has a Republican challenger for the next election named Omar Navarro. He’s a Latino and a Trump supporter!

Here’s a press release from his website:

Republican Omar Navarro On The Campaign To Unseat Maxine Waters

Torrance, CA – Omar Navarro the Republican challenger to Maxine Waters for Congressional Seat of the 43rd District was on the front lines in the City of Cudahy’s bid to be considered a sanctuary city. He continues his campaign to unseat “career politician” Maxine Waters.

Omar plans to build and follow in the footsteps of his friend and colleague, Jack M Guerrero, who was victorious March 7th in his bid for city council in the City of Cudahy. I believe you can stand your ground, even while smeared by corrupt opponents, and run for office in a city with a high registration of Democrats and win as a Republican.“The County Democratic machine has more of a reason to see why they are not relevant in Los Angeles anymore.”

On February 28th Omar, a Latino Trump Supporter, was himself attacked, yelled at through a bullhorn and called an “immigrant cracker” by protesters at a Cudahy Town Hall calling for Cudahy to be a Sanctuary City.
