Does Mathematics Advance White Privilege?

University of Illinois professor Rochelle Guitierrez complains that the phrase “Pythagorean Theorem” and the cultural emphasis on math prejudices mathematics against non-white students.

I guess she thinks these students aren’t human! Mathematical reasoning is a unique function of the human mind. But, it figures, since the anti-reason social justice ideology sees all humans as fractured into physical and social groups, warring with each other, rather than united by a common humanity.

“Things cannot be known objectively; they must be known subjectively.”

— Professor Guitierrez

Wow, and she teaches math education at the University of Illinois at Chicago.  Of course, former Weatherman bomber Bill Ayres was a lauded professor of education there. Follow the ideas and you will understand the culture.
