Math Is Racist. So Is School. So Is the Whole World

Re: “A Pathway To Equitable Math Instruction: Dismantling Racism in Mathematics Instruction” (a guidebook for teachers).

One thing about liberalism, it’s never consistent. Indeed, liberalism frequently contradicts itself. For example, liberals insist that all humans are equal (they aren’t). If that’s true, then math couldn’t be “racist” because all humans would be equally able to multiply and divide. That’s like saying the weather is racist. The weather doesn’t play favorites and neither does math. Black people have trouble with math because they have lower IQs than White people, usually one standard deviation lower (i.e., 15 IQ points lower than Whites; White American IQ is roughly 100, Black American IQ is roughly 85; IQ tests measure the ability to recognize and solve problems).

Let’s look at what’s in this book. Here are two quotes from it:

“Often the emphasis is placed on learning math in the “real world,” as if our classrooms are not a part of the real world. This reinforces notions of either/or thinking because math is only seen as useful when it is in a particular context. However, this can result in using mathematics to uphold capitalist and imperialist ways of being and understandings of the world.” (Huh?? I thought this was a math guidebook? Why mention capitalism?).

“Give rightful credit to the discovery of math concepts by mathematicians of color. Reclaim concepts attributed to white mathematicians that should be attributed to mathematicians of color.” (What are they saying? That you should steal math concepts from Whites and give them to Blacks because Whites stole them? That Whites are so darn desperate that they must steal math concepts from Blacks? That maybe Sir Isaac Newton stole calculus from a negro?).
