So, let me get this straight.  To reward children for successfully adding 2+2 is to be white?  So what this woman (hell she is probably a black/native man stuck in a white something body) is trying to say is only nonwhites give rewards for not being able to add?  She better let the Japanese know that.  I don't think they got the memo.

Here is the translation into American English.  Because blacks and Mexicans suck at math, it's because of racist whites with our privilege.  Damn, still looking for that white privilege check.  It's a bit overdue.  I expect interest on it too.

AHHHH!!!  STOP THE INSANITY!!!!

Professor claims 'meritocracy' in math class is a 'tool of whiteness': report

A math professor at Brooklyn College wrote an academic paper contending that meritocracy in math class holds back racial minorities and is a tool of “whiteness,” Campus Reform reported on Monday.

Professor Laurie Rubel, a former high school teacher, wrote the article in the Journal of Urban Mathematics Education. She reportedly contends that meritocracy is oftentimes associated with hard work, but it ignores “systematic barriers” that prevent the opportunity of success.

Rubel reportedly recommended that math teachers use more social justice issues during lessons. Rubel, however, warned that teaching “social justice” can also be a tool of whiteness if teachers are ignorant to the experiences of their minority students.

Campus Reform linked out to a PDF file of the article where Rubel cites another scholarly article to make the case that, “Teachers often view participation of marginalized students as off-task, unproductive, or distracting, even when it reflects students’ membership of and competence in another social context, unbeknownst to the teacher.”

Rubel wrote that math teachers who claim to be color-blind are not doing the minority students any favors.

“By claiming not to notice, the teacher is saying that she is dismissing one of the most salient features of the child’s identity and that she does not account for it in her curricular planning and instruction,” she wrote, citing another education theorist. 

Campus Reform reported that it reached out to Rubel but did not immediately receive comment.

I need some rational discussion here. 

In the mean time, I'm going to make jello.  Since I'm white I know how to use measuring cups.  I even know fractions and division.  So, I know how to measure a 1/2 cup if I need it.  When I'm finished, I will put it in the fridge.  Since I am white, I pay the electric bill.  What that means is inside of my fridge will be cool enough to cool the jello.  My stove will get hot enough to heat the water.  In a couple of hours, I will eat my jello.

Here is your math question today.  If Malcolm's mama wants to make jello, will Malcolm be able to eat it in 2 1/2 hours?

Answer:  Malcolm will be eating a package of gummy worms that his Mama's EBT card bought at 7-11.

"Thank you white people with your privilege checks so you can pay for my son's gummy worm lunch." says Malcolm's mama.

Just kidding.  She really said, "SHUT THE !@##$# UP WHITEY!!!  MY BOY DIDN'T TAKE NO GUMBY WURMS!"
