Education, universally accepted as necessary for all people to live productive lives, in industrialized areas of a nation.
All professions from construction workers to Surgeons need reading, writing, and arithmetic skills.
The same for agrarian cultures, they have used some system of counting for thousands of years in order to conduct business.
For example, if you own 5 pigs and want to barter them for 2 cows, you have to assign a numerical accepted norm for symbols and language to explain and execute the transaction.
With even this most basic idea, the loony leftists, who have completed 16 plus years of education, feel compelled by their world view, formed by the extra education and based on Marxist principles, to assign racist characteristics to, 2+2=4.
According to Breitbart, Brooklyn College, Professor of Math Education Laurie Rubel argued this week on Twitter that the mathematical equation 2+2=4 “reeks of white supremacist patriarchy.”
Rubel’s tweet was retweeted and promoted by several academics at universities and colleges around the nation.
According to a report by Campus Reform, Brooklyn College Professor Laurie Rubel, who teaches math education, tried to make the case this week that basic math is “white supremacist.” The tweets are part of a larger trend in recent scholarship by American academics, many of which have argued that “objective truth” is a social construct.
“The idea that math (or data) is culturally neutral or in any way objective is a MYTH. I’m ready to move on with that understanding. Who’s coming with me?” Rubel wrote in a tweet.
“Along with the ‘of course math is neutral because 2+2=4’ trope and the related (and creepy) ‘math is pure’ and ‘protect math.’ Reeks of white supremacist patriarchy,” Rubel added. “I’d rather think on nurturing people & protecting the planet (with math in service of their goals).”
Several academics from institutions around the nation chimed in. Harvard Ph.D. candidate Kareem Carr suggested that math should be reevaluated because it was primarily developed by white men.
“People say it’s subjectivism to ask if math is Western. I don’t get that. It’s an objective fact that some groups were more involved in the creation of modern math than others,” Carr said. “They may have been *trying* to make it objective but it’s not stupid to ask if they actually succeeded!”
Racism is ugly, divisive, and racist, regardless of the person.
The globalists have been effective in molding white educators, into guilt-ridden white privileged people who must give us some of their opportunities and even pay reparations, even though they never stole from a minority group or owned a slave.
Ms. Rubel is the perfect example, disparaging a math system because it was created by the white supremacist patriarchy. So she, though white, is an anti-white misandrist (hates men).
I have said this, thousands of times, unless we rebuild the nuclear family unit, remove Marxism and postmodern mandates from education, and stop immigration temporarily, the globalists will succeed long term, in reducing the US, to just another nation of the world, removing the last deterrent to the rise of tyrannical leaders
