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 [email protected]##$# UP WHITEY!!!  MY BOY DIDN'T TAKE NO GUMBY WURMS!"

Well I'm a whitey and I'm having a hard time with these math questions I have to answer to submit a reply.

 

This place is racist against the math-mattikal challenged.  Oh, and I *will* be filing a complaint.  Yell

 

Dang it what happened to the angry face I loved to much.  'Zat all the smileys we get?

I'm doing great.  How long has it been?  I'm mostly doing facebook groups now which is a similar experience to when the BV was bustling with posts.  I'm remarried now but that was a little over 9 years ago.  I can't remember if we've talked since then.  How are you bro?

 

Let's see.  I don't like the sunglasses smiley because it reminds me of ninor.

I don't like the wink smiley, that was nigfis and sotex favorite.

I couldn't have been 9 years ago??? So many names have come and gone a few are over on facebook. Me, Billy, Smokin Joe, and Bullwinkle are friends. Way too many have gone to twitter (not me), and facebooks.  Not like here where a subject is in the archive and meaningful writing and opinions. FB just seems to be 2 sentences about the dogs fleas and "I'm eating lunch at mcDonalds with a big mac picture".  Everything just scrolls into oblivion in a day and gone forever. 

The bad part about message boards is we never know real names, FB is all your real names.  A few are still coming back in here from time to time. OrangeTom, and a few others on the religion forum. 

Doesn't seem like its been that many years, obviously your new ID #2 so it predates the last change when we had to re register?  If its been that long, than I have 2 grand children, one of them from our illustrious leader here. I think you were married last time, you talked about some border issues I think. I'm sure we all have some epic debates about the war, religion, and atheism.  Pretty tame around here lately.  🙂 

Anyways, glad you are back, we need a few more or our old timers to surface. It really is hard to not wonder, who was behind so many posting names, where they were from, and their personal journeys. In Message boards its all a big mystery, on FB everyone knows what toilet paper brand they use.  Sure a big difference in the two formats.

Sounds like you're doing great.  I remember you turned me on to Duluth Trading Co. and I've bought several items from them since.

I remember OrangeTom!  One of his favorite words is "peoples."  Kiss

The facebook groups are different.  They are just like message boards but more active, sometimes too much.  I like the smaller groups.  I'm only in a couple of groups, one of which is religious/political which obviously results in huge, heated debates.

God bless you brother!  I've really missed you and John.

I'm waiting for Nesaie to post.  I read several of her messages and it seems like she is more conservative now than she used to be.  That's a pleasant surprise.  Laugh

Well, welcome back, and you've been missed.

Seems like a few original names are popping back on from time to time...
