Pi is racist

This little gem might belong in the Fail thread; but it is just too dam funny.


A math education professor at the University of Illinois says the ability to solve geometry and algebra problems and teaching such subjects perpetuates so-called white privilege.

Rochelle Gutierrez laid out her views on the subject in an article for a newly published anthology for math educators titled, “Building Support for Scholarly Practices in Mathematics Methods.”

White privilege bolstered by teaching math, university professor says | Fox News

Lets ignore the fact that algebra was created in Mesopotamia (modern syria/iraq).

If I were to travel to Mesopotamia so I could use Pi to solve a problem AND in doing so I am considered a minority there, would I still be a racist?

I really need to solve this algebra problem, race be damned.

Worth a read. Especially like the math lesson history
https://twitter.com/i/web/status/918492168955850752

Apparently she has been blowing on this for a few years. Guessing she changed it up after not getting any attention calling math political.

I thought math was racially best represented by Asians?

Those fuckers generally run circles around my white ass when it comes to numbers.

What do you call a snake that's exactly 3.14 meters long?

A pi-thon.

I'm pretty sure she said in a nutshell that people of color are dumb, and because only white folks understand math, the problem is getting worse.

right, but she blames it on white privilege.

Maybe the hoodrats should quit trying to be rap stars in Jr. High and pay attention in school. Maybe if they had a dad to whoop their ass for flunking math. Maybe if they knew who daddy was.....

Let's also ignore the fact that pi isn't algebra.

Did the Greeks look a few centuries into the future to misapropriate things?

The sad part is there is not a black person in America today that cannot get a free college education if the apply a little effort. They don't even have to try all that hard....expectations for them are pretty damn low.

Damn, I guess that's a racist statement too...
