Lack of Ability is Not Systemic Racism
In a high tech age that has seen the creation of artificial intelligence by computers, we are also seeing the creation of artificial stupidity by people who call themselves educators. Thomas Sowell
The claim of systemic racism is a myth, another product of post-modern irrationality. It is up to the one making such claims to prove it, not the targets they seek to smear to prove they are not racist.
Democratic "race-card" activists decried the Supreme Court ruling overturning affirmative action racism. To quote Erica Marsh 6-30-2023 on Twitter:
"Today's Supreme Court decision is a direct attack on Black people. No Black person will be able to succeed in a merit-based system, which is exactly why affirmative-action-based programs were needed. Today's decision is a TRAVESTY!!!"
In other words, blacks and other low-achieving non-whites need white people like Ms. Marsh to hold their hands and guide them through life. Liberals believe lacks are too stupid to do anything on their own, then treat them like little children.
The costly and failing education-industrial complex operated by people like Ms. Marsh destroys opportunities for poor students reliant on public education. Progressive race Gristers control education at every level, from teaching colleges to school boards and classrooms.
If there are differences in outcome, then it must be racism. Post-modernism posits that individuals do not exist outside their designated group based on immutable characteristics such as skin color or sexual organs. Then, they claim that race does not exist and is a "social construct." If race does not exist, then how can racism exist? They call out "racist, " "denier," or whatever name they concoct.
Fig. 2 above shows SAT scores by race for the State of Michigan. Michigan educators are obsessed with race, refusing to educate students. Overall, they hurt all students, the majority white.
By the numbers, there are more poor whites than blacks. Post-modernists see whites as a group, closing their eyes to differences within groups. Poor children of all races are handicapped by an education system poisoned by irrational ideology are the losers. Lowering standards in the name of diversity and equity and wasting valuable class time on race-gender mythology produces the outcomes on Michigan SAT scores.
Not a single black scored above 1400, and only 76 Hispanics did. 97% of blacks and 92% of Hispanics failed to score above 1200. SAT scores are a good indicator of college performance. No wonder Erica Marsh believes blacks and Hispanics lack the merit to succeed because they do after going through our broken public schools.
This outcome is the result of our Progressive, post-modern-minded teaching establishment. If this is racism, then they are perpetrating the racism. Ms. Marsh's attitude is racist. This destruction is deliberate throughout the educational-industrial complex and their teacher's unions.
Fig. 3 Crackpot academic Kareem Carr of Harvard
One "race card" hack from Harvard will tell you two plus two equals five.
Crackpot Kareem Carr of Harvard explains why this is possible based on something he read in Popular Mechanics:
"...hope is that you understand the flexible relationship between our mathematical systems, our perceptions of the world, and the symbolic manipulations we use to reason about reality. We are not passive observers."
What? Academic babble. In other words, they abandon the real world and use "manipulations" to create an alternate, hidden reality. Or what about this:
"Literal-minded people might sometimes say things like I put a rooster and hen together, and I came back a year later, and there were three of them (1+1=3), or they might say I left a fox and a hen together, and later I came back and there was only one (1+1=1)."
This thinking is mindless rubbish. Rational-minded people say a rooster and hen produced a chick, 1+1+1=3. The fox ate the hen, so 2-1=1.
In a rebuke, "No Harvard, 2+2 Does Not Equal 5," Ben Billups writes:
"With each passing year, it seems our institutions of higher education become less and less sane. ... Carr's basic thesis? Sometimes 2+2 = 5 — and it does not get better from there. Carr begins by arguing that basic mathematical statements are abstractions (which is true). However, he makes a series of statements that fly in the face of basic reality in the way only an academic can."
Fig. 4 Rochelle Gutierrez crackpot educator.
This anti-reasoning is the basis of critical theory and post-modernism. Reason and evidence be damned. Only feelings and emotions are real. Other academics see math as racist. Rochelle Gutierrez is another academic crackpot saying just that. Now, it is known as "white math":
"curricula emphasizing terms like Pythagorean theorem and pi perpetuate a perception that mathematics was largely developed by Greeks and other Europeans."
As a factual statement, Europeans created nearly all modern science, mathematics, and technology. That is factual regardless of one's feeling of inferiority. Get over it.
She whines on about mathematics requiring actual knowledge that favors whites. No math favors talent. To quote,
"...more white than nonwhite people are math professors and that math professors often benefit from 'unearned privilege' - getting more grants and more respect than other professors - just because they are math professors and not professors in another academic field."
A mathematics or engineering degree is worth more than a Latino studies degree. Gutierrez claims that "things cannot be known objectively; they must be known subjectively." Critical Theory 101. Makeup whatever one wants, and it must be true! 2+2=5!
This nonsense is from her own bio:
Dr. Gutierrez" scholarship focuses on issues of identity and power in mathematics education, paying particular attention to how race, class, and language affect teaching and learning. Through in-depth analyses of effective teaching/learning communities and longitudinal studies of developing and practicing teachers, her work challenges deficit views of students who are Latinx, Black, and Indigenous and suggests that mathematics teachers need to be prepared with much more than just content knowledge, pedagogical knowledge, or knowledge of diverse students if they are going to be successful. They need political knowledge. Her current research projects focus upon: developing in pre-service teachers the knowledge and disposition to teach powerful mathematics to urban students; the roles of uncertainty, tensions, and "Nepantla” in teaching; and the political knowledge (and forms of creative insubordination) that mathematics teachers need to effectively “rehumanize” mathematics in an era of high-stakes education. She also builds upon Indigenous principles and has argued for a new form of mathematics where humans are no long centered. This form of mathematics is referred to as living mathematx.
Total gibberish. "Identity and power in mathematics education?" This is indoctrination, not education.
No "mathematx" is not misspelled. Nepantla is defined, "in-between-ness." Nepantla is a Nahuatl word which means 'in the middle of it' or "middle." It may refer specifically to the space between two figurative or literal bodies of water." What? Water on her brain? "Indigenous" mathematics? One can't make this up.
