Why Blue America Is Doomed

Math is racist. Achievement is supremacy.


Seattle Public Schools adopt program that turns math into yet another grievance studies program:

In October, Seattle public schools unveiled a “framework” to inject “math ethnic studies” into all K-12 math classes, teaching “how math has been and continues to be used to oppress and marginalize people and communities of color.”
Students will be asked to “identify the inherent inequities of the standardized testing system used to oppress and marginalize people and communities of color” and “explain how math dictates economic oppression.”
“Why/how does data-driven processes prevent liberation?” it asks. “How important is it to be Right? What is Right? Says Who?”

It almost reads like the Babylon Bee – which is something I realize I’m saying a lot about the modern American left:

The curriculum was pushed by the school district’s ethnic studies program manager, Tracy Castro-Gill, who on Oct. 19 tweeted a picture with her “Marxist ringleader” and said the “next step is matching “INDOCTRINATED” t-shirts!”
“I am an educator of color in Seattle whose job is anti-racist work within the school district. Seattle is very white — nearly 70%. It’s also one of the most liberal cities in the US, and these liberal, white Seattleites hate being called racist, but the thing is – a lot of them are,” she wrote.
Though she was hired by the superintendent and the school board, Castro-Gill said criticisms of the math proposal from one board member’s Asian wife were racist. She also asked people to “help me push” the board and superintendent to oppose “rewhiting.”

I used to joke that pretty much every “radical atheist” was a Catholic or Evangelical with Daddy issues.

And yet again, the joke is reality:

Castro-Gill wrote on her blog that her mother is white and her father is Hispanic, but that she has a strained relationship.
“I’m fairly radical atheist and consider myself a far left anarchist who fights for racial justice,” she wrote. “My parents are both Trump supporting Republicans.”
She is also at odds with her child’s father after their child declared herself “nonbinary” after reading literature about transgenderism.

Fearless prediction – which I started writing as a joke, but as with all such things, Berg’s 21st Law is in effect here – Ms. Castro-Gill will be hired as a consultant by the Minneapolis, Saint Paul, Edina or Bloomington Public Schools in the near future.

  1. how math has been and continues to be used to oppress and marginalize people and communities of color.

    I don’t know how anyone could read this and *not* see it as a very roundabout admission that white supremacy not only exists but that it exists for a good reason.

  2. We must “identify the inherent inequities of the standardized testing system used to oppress and marginalize people and communities of color.”

    In other words, Black kids do poorly on math tests because they don’t understand the problems. We must re-write the problems to be more relevant to their lives.

    Seems to me this was done, years ago, by kids in junior high. I seem to recall we caught hell for it.

    “D’ante has three watermelons. If J’amal steals one, how many watermelons does D’ante have left?”

    Is this truly what society demands today? Have we really come full circle? I’ve gotta be missing something, because that’s just asinine.

  3. “Math is oppressive” as claimed by the academic & urban nut left argues that contemporary math is just used to redline minorities, ghettoize them, and deny them credit etc, cuz credit risk analysis = math.  And thus the whole capitalist system enforces cultural and institutional structures that disadvantage minorities, and that this basic ambiance is ‘white supremacist’.

    Its dumb because its post-modern and Marxist.  But that ambiance part that observes society at large has structures that favor that majority population, that’s what they define as  ‘white supremacy’ in economic and cultural terms. This is a different thing than what some of you guys like to define it as, which is that white people are smarter than black people.

  4. People who can’t do math are oppressed. If you can’t balance your checkbook, create a personal or household budget, or calculate interest paid, or do a cost/benefit analysis, you are committing yourself to a life as a patsy to anyone who comes along with a shiny object. This may make for excellent voters, but lousy citizens.

  5. We need to start a gameshow called real headline or Babylon Bee headline. It would be very hard. Also I’ve almost stopped caring at this point. I mean this is from the same crowd that says, with a straight face, that men can have periods. So Im just going to laugh because otherwise Ill cry.

  6. Some people came to a savage wilderness, tamed it, and put in place institutions and procedures to ensure their descendants would enjoy peace and prosperity. Doesn’t matter if we’re talking about Pilgrims in America or Incas in Peru or Jews in Canaan – that’s how civilizations always act.

    If a newcomer learns how the institutions work and learns the acceptable procedures to prosper, they can succeed and lots of them did. But if you don’t understand the institutions and refuse to follow the procedures, then you’re not going to succeed. Simple as that.

    Like it or not, we live in a society that operates on White institutions and White rules. You don’t have to BE White to succeed, you can ACT White and still succeed. Millions of Black Americans have proven that.

  7. Its why I, like Candace Owns and many others, view the #1 problem in black and other minority communities now is not any of this structural/systemic racist BS trhe Left spouts off its the lack of fathers helping raise the kids. The proof is because even whites are now being effected by this. And finally as I have said before there are 3 things to virtually assure you will avoid poverty (with like 98-99% success rate, no seriously)

    young people can virtually assure that they and their families will avoid poverty if they follow three elementary rules for success – complete at least a high school education, work full time, and wait until age 21 and get married before having a baby. Based on an analysis of Census data, people who followed all three of these rules had only a 2 percent chance of being in poverty and a 72 percent chance of joining the middle class (defined as above $55,000 in 2010.”

  8. Mark Helprin, from “Freddy and Fredricka”:

    “All you need do is refrain from smoking, drinking and the use of drugs. Eat only wholesome,low-fat foods, with the emphasis on vegetables, grains and fish. Seek work. Work hard. Show up on time. Do more than is expected. Think of ways to make the job efficient. Don’t complain. Shave, bathe and wear clean clothes. Be cheerful. Don’t gamble. Live within your means. Save. And then, when you have all this in balance, study things of substance. Read to satisfy your curiosity. Don’t father children out of wedlock or bear them as a single mother. Exercise. You will find that you will be promoted – perhaps not knighted, but promoted. If that doesn’t happen, look quietly for a better position. Find a husband or a wife whom you love and who has the same good habits. Invest. Assume a mortgage if you must. Teach your children the virtues. And then, having become the means of production, you will own your share of the means of production, and if you do those things, all of which are within your power, you will live your own lives.”

    They looked at him as if he were an armadillo that has just spoken to them in Chinese. Not having assimilated a single phrase, they all got up and went to the bus.” 

  9. This goes right into the same box I store reprobate comments: Shit I don’t care about.

    Why even bother taking note of anything leftists say, or do any more? Anyone out there have any lingering doubts about their mental instabilities? Anyone out there think public school is a good option for your kids? Any one out there think there is anything so low, so foul, so dehumanizing a leftist reprobate isn’t doing or saying somewhere?

    Listen boys. The GOP got Rekt in Virginia on Tuesday…Virginia. The Old Dominion is down.

    Y’all can spend your time clucking your tongues and shaking your heads. I’m gonna be actively involved in beating back the rot…starting with the traitors in the GOP.
