Brainless In Seattle – Turning Kids Into Race-Obsessed Creeps!


Did you know that…

The Seattle school district has proposed a controversial framework for K-12 math classes that asks students to debate ethnic-studies questions?

The goal? To “re-humanize mathematics through experiential learning.”

We always know it’s going to be klutzy when they refer to coloured people as ‘people of colour!’

Seattle’s proposal portrays “math” as something that was appropriated by Western culture from people of color and used in systems of power and oppression.

Discussion topics include:
  • How has math been used to oppress and marginalize people of color?
  • Who really holds the power in a math classroom?
  • How has math been used to free people from oppression?
  • How do standardized testing systems marginalize people of color?
  • How can math be used to promote resistance and liberation?
  • .

Nobody in his right mind would go along with such hogwash, but it turns out somebody in his LEFT mind is delighted.

“Seattle is definitely on the forefront with this,” says Robert Q. Berry III, President of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. “What they’re doing follows the line of work we hope we can move forward as we think about the history of math and who contributes to that, and also about deepening students’ connection with identity and agency.”

It would be easy to laugh at this, as many sane people do.

“Did you realize when you subtracted one number from another that you were disenfranchising people by using Western math?” jokes Seattle radio host Dori Monson.

But actually this nonsense is both offensive and dangerous.

Crap about ‘identity and agency‘ has no place in kids’ classrooms.

And the point of having them learn mathematics is so they can calculate – just like arithmetic is about doing  sums.

Not imbibe grudges concocted by pinko creeps like Berry. 

Nobody except the odd academic wants or needs to know the ‘history’ of maths.

If far-left fanatics like Berry want to twist everything into a racialised curriculum, he should be told to butt out of education and enter politics – openly.

He obviously already has, not quite openly as a left party candidate, but preferring to use schools as his propaganda arm.
