Oregon Pushes Idea That Math Is Racist


The Oregon Department of Education is promoting a course for teachers that links math lessons to racism and a culture of “white supremacy.”

The department last week sent out an online pamphlet for a course called “A Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction,” which includes a section on “Dismantling Racism in Mathematics Instruction.” The pamphlet includes materials that are essentially a course for spreading wokeness inside of classrooms.

The ODE-promoted course brands itself as “an integrated approach to mathematics that centers Black, Latinx, and Multilingual students in grades 6-8, addresses barriers to math equity, and aligns instruction to grade-level priority standards.” The course challenges the reality that some answers are simply wrong while broadly challenging America’s founding principles. read more

  1. Hey!, Let’s try some Uncommon-core math or Abnormal-math or Irregular-math.
    There MUST be something out there that is better than the original 3 Rs. /s

  2. If You had six hits of heroin and Shenika had seven hits. How long will it be before you are saying “I ain’t did nuttin” to five-O? If you bust a cap on Melvin’s ass and one 40 cal is equal to 1.5 9mm how many shots will it take to kill your baby momma for her EBT card with that stolen 45?

  3. We’re going down. This is the third generation being destroyed by the left.

    It’s either war later, or leave now.

  4. “ The concept of mathematics being purely objective is unequivocally false, and teaching it is even much less so,” the course states.

    Teaching it is less false? Sounds like English isn’t their strong suit either.

  5. No cursive.
    No maff.
    No critical thinkin.
    No history.
    No analytics.
    No grammar.
    No Engrish.
    No excellence.
    Show-up Awards.
    No “gender.”
    No borders.

    Are we starting to see a trend? If you wanted an entire class of ignorant, poorly-thinking slaves, what would you do differently? It was illegal to teach negroes to read in the Ante-Bellum South. Now it’s illegal in Oregon to teach them Math!

    Who gonna put em back in chains?

    izlamo delenda est …

  6. This kind of thing is going to be running rampant in blue states.
    Here in Maine the Dems and scaredy cat R’s are getting ready to pass LD 1, to form a board to review every law or ordinance to make sure it doesn’t adversely affect anyone who isn’t white or straight.
    The commies are really going for the red ring of Communism now. People are too stupid or cowardly to stop them. Here in ME anyway.

  7. Well math is racists. It seems to always hit uneducated professional basketball, baseball, football players. Even Tiger Woods has made some bad mistakes and like all of them, their dick got in the way of losing their fortune. Dump a bundle of money in my lap and I would forget that math and money do mix. By the time the ignorant rich figures it out that there’s no mo money, they start blaming everyone but themselves.

  8. But…but… what about that recent Disney movie that told us it was black, women mathematicians at NASA who were solely responsible for putting our astronauts on the moon? It had to be true, because Disney.

  9. Remember when Talkimg Barbie got in trouble for saying “math is hard”? Was that the traditional white racist Barbie or the new, woke, black Barbie?

    1. Johnny has an AK-47 with an 80-round clip. If he misses 6 out of 10 shots and shoots 13 times at each drive-by shooting, how many drive-by shootings can he attempt before he has to reload?
    Jose has 2 ounces of cocaine and he sells an 8-ball to Jackson for $320 and 2 grams to Billy for $85 per gram. What is the street value of the balance of the cocaine if he doesn’t cut it?

    2. Rufus is pimping for three girls. If the price is $65 for each trick, how many tricks will each girl have to turn so Rufus can pay for his $800-per-day crack habit?
    Jarone want to cut his 1/2 pound of heroin to make 20% more profit. How many ounces of cut will he need?

    3. Willie gets $200 for stealing a BMW, $50 for a Chevy, and $100 for a 4X4. If he has stolen 2 BMWs, 3 4X4s, how many Chevies will he have to steal to make $800?

    4. Raoul got 6 years for murder. He also got $10,000 for the hit. If his common-law wife spends $100 per month, how much money will be left when he gets out?
    Extra credit bonus: how much more time will he get for killing the bitch that that spent his money?

    5 If an average can of spray paint covers 22 square feet and the average letter is 3 square feet, how many letters can be sprayed with 3 eight ounce cans of spray paint with 20% paint free?

    6. Hector knocked up 3 girls in the gang. There are 27 girls in his gang. What is the exact percentage of girls Hector knocked up?

    7. Thelma can cook dinner for her 16 children for $7.50 per night. She gets $234 a month welfare for each child. If her $325 per month rent goes up 15%, how many more children should she have to keep up with her expenses?

    8. Salvador was arrested for dealing crack and his bail was set at $25,000. If he pays a bail bondsman 12% and returns to Mexico, how much money will he lose by jumping bail?

    9. Bernie is a lookout for the gang. Bernie has a Boa Constrictor that eats 3 small rats per week at a cost of $5 per rat. If Bernie makes $700 a week as a lookout, how many weeks can he feed the Boa on one week’s income?

    10. Billy steals Joe’s skateboard. As Billy skates away at 35 mph, Joe loads his .357 Magnum. If it takes Joe 20 seconds to load his magnum, how far away will Billy be when he gets whacked?

  11. Is there a “Think tank” somewhere that looks for more and more ways to suppress ‘people of color’-(I’m not sure if the woke term has changed, again).

    What the hell, instead of teaching basically necessary math to everyone, this think tank realized it’s a great tool to divide and suppress a large part of the population. A stupid person is so easy to enslave by the damn demoncrats!

  12. One reason why blacks are very underrepresented in the software business. Of course drugs are much more lucrative. Dollars and bullets are easier to count.

  13. I hope that these asshats are the first to cross a bridge built by a student who’s been taught that there are no wrong answers.

  14. @ Tony R


    Send a copy to Maxine Waters and all the white male Demos who pretend to care about Black people.

    I have many friends who are teachers and they are always trying to make their subjects relatable. Who knows, you might be able to $$$$ by publishing textbooks.

  15. Dividing by zero will become acceptable, instead of undefined.

    So if I have a million dollars, and Leroy has 0 dollars, we must divide my million by Leroy’s 0 so that Leroy gets his fair amount of my million. The correct answer is figured out by the socialist run school district with input from the liberal teacher.

    Math, that old white male invention, must be re-made to serve the new Global Masters.

  16. Ya gotta talk like the kids sound:

    If a Asian egg’s square an’ a Black egg an’ a Cracka ain’t nuffin, then an egg’s same as a Black and’ mo’ o’ less tha scared root o’ Black Power too less’n fo’ Asian Crackas all ovah to Asians. — Quadraphonic Formilla

  17. @Kcir — 10 minutes? Yeah, about that!

    It’s an important algebra formula, the solution to any quadratic equation of the form ax² +bx + c = 0.

    x = (-b ± sqrt(b²-4ac)) ÷ 2a

  18. In the Cultural Revolution in China, 1966-1976, led by Chaitman Mao, against the four olds, old culture, old habits, old ideas, old customs, there was no formal education in China for ten years.
    Teachers, monks, officials, educated were killed, tortured, shamed or sent to re-education camps.
    There was violence, fighting, pitched battles and Red Guards ruled through violence and intimidation.
    Finally, with a collapsing economy and Red Guards out of control, Mao sent the Red Guards to the rural villages to learn from the peasants.
    Then it ended, people running it arrested, and The Cultural Revolution ended.

  19. Numbers are the closest thing we have to the hand of God! Any great mathematician is never wrong!
    A group of mathematicians at NASA, led by a BLACK WOMAN, launched a GIANT rocket from the Earth, sent it racing into the unknown realms of Outer Space, made it the Moon and began an orbit of the Moon, they dropped a tiny Lunar Module onto the surface of the Moon, blasted that tiny module back into Space, rejoined with its shuttle and headed back to the Earth, uncoupled from the shuttle and dropped into Earths atmosphere and splashed down in the Ocean!! And all on the TRUST AND FAITH they had in the Mathematicians ability to figure out the possibility of an impossible trip by only putting numbers together with MATH!!!
    So math is only racist to radical idiots in Oregon who just want to keep saying “racism exists”!!
