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


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.”

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? :confused:

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

I thought math was racially best represented by Asians? :confused:

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

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

wow. uhhhh.....ok. I didn't understand but a fraction of what she was saying. It was in English, but man. I did get that she was talking about math like it's a sentient being. whacked.....definitely whacked.

And math is not racist or political. Calculus makes EVERYONE feel dumb when they first start learning it. :flipoff2:
Pretty sure she doesn't understand what she is saying either. :laughing::laughing:

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.....
