2+2=5? Why Not? Oregon Department Of Education Promotes Course That Claims Math Is Racist Because It Requires A Correct Answer

(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – America is in serious trouble if the woke left continues to have their way. Everything has become about race and identity and it’s completely undermining everything America stands for.

Has America had issues with racism in the past? Yes, we all know this but America is one of the most tolerant and accepting places in the entire world. Everyone who lives here is granted the same opportunities and chances at becoming successful, should they decide to work for it, of course.

Equality of opportunity, however, is not what the deranged left is after. They want something much different.

Unhinged leftists want equality of outcomes and that’s why they’re now claiming that mathematics is “racist.”

You read that right. Math is now a form of racism. Of course, you’re probably reasonably confused. How could math, which has clear and undeniable answers that are the same for everyone, possibly be racist?

Well, an Oregon Department of Education newsletter from February attempted to explain just that.

The newsletter was promoting an online course designed to “dismantle” instances of “white supremacy culture in the mathematics classroom.” Apparently, it’s racist and a form of “white supremacy” to teach students that math is objective.

The newsletter asserted that “the concept of mathematics being purely objective … is unequivocally false.”

Huh?

The program promoted in the newsletter is known as “A Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction” and is described as “an integrated approach to mathematics that centers Black, Latinx, and Multilingual students” and provides “opportunities for ongoing self-reflection as they seek to develop an anti-racist math practice.”

It’s hard to believe this isn’t satire. This is really where we are in America right now.

The course guide actually contends that the way math is being taught, where students are required to find the correct answer, causes “educational harm” to “Black, Latinx, and multilingual students” and denies “them full access to the world of mathematics.”

So, the course takes the position that minority groups are, apparently, not smart enough to succeed in math courses and therefore it’s a racist institution that should be dumbed down to cater to the alleged disadvantages of the “slow-learning” minorities.

Do these people really not see just how racist they actually are by perpetuating this kind of nonsense?

For leftists, however, everything is about “equitable outcomes” rather than truth or reality.

“Building math instruction on an equitable foundation can better ensure all our students have a pathway to success in math,” the Oregon Department of Communications’ Director of Communications, Marc Siegel, said.

This “pathway to success in math” evidently includes doing away with “right answers” which are now a form of “white supremacy.”

Public Affairs Director for the National Association of Scholars, Glenn Ricketts, told Campus Reform, “Mathematics was once considered immune: after all, doesn’t 2 + 2 = 4? … But as I have read recently, the problem that math and arithmetic insist on correct answers is actually a hidden form of ‘white supremacy,’ as everything else is as well.”

The authors behind the program that seeks to “dismantle” this form of overt “white supremacy” argue that the idea of math being “purely objective” is false and that “Upholding the idea that there are always right and wrong answers perpetuate objectivity as well as fear of open conflict.”

What on earth are these people even talking about?

Leftists are living in a fantasy world where there is no objective truth at all. Their very mission in life is to do away with any kind of objective truth and replace it with nonsensical pseudo-psychology and faux moral superiority.

Math will always be objective and quantifiable no matter how badly leftists want to dumb it down and convolute it.

This lunacy has got to stop.

  1. Oregon … There is a reason they are called Oregoonians. As realized by the riots of Portland, the folks allowing that lunacy, and those participating in them are themselves questionably human. By far the lowest IQ average of any state in the country. 2+2 = 5 says it all. Racist fools.

  2. Now about the insanity of this mask wearing that these mentally ill people who have tossed our Constitution out the window, demand of us.

    “The irony, however, is that “the science” doesn’t justify the fanatical commitment to mask-wearing. There are plenty of experts with evidence-based views to the contrary. Here are but a few examples:

    Dr. Anthony Fauci himself told the truth about the uselessness of mask-wearing on “60 Minutes” on March 8, 2020: “Right now, in the United States, people should not be walking around with masks. … There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask. When you’re in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better, and it might even block a droplet, but it’s not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is. And, often, there are unintended consequences: People keep fiddling with the mask, and they keep touching their face.”

    Dr. Ramin Oskoui, a cardiologist in Washington at a Senate hearing in December 2020, testified under oath: “Masks do not work.” (The New York Times, Dec. 8, 2020.)

    The Wall Street Journal reported on Nov. 11, 2020: “The projected number of lives saved, and the implied case for a mask mandate, are based on a faulty statistic.”

    Dr. Paul E. Alexander, a Canadian epidemiologist, wrote: “Surgical and cloth masks, used as they currently are, have absolutely no impact on controlling the transmission of Covid-19 virus, and current evidence implies that face masks can be actually harmful.” (American Institute for Economic Research, Feb. 11, 2021.)

    Roger W. Koops, who has a doctorate in chemistry from the University of California, Riverside, wrote: “A ‘mask,’ and that term usually refers to either a SURGICAL mask or N95 mask, has no benefit in the general population and is only useful in controlled clinical settings. Further, it has been considered a greater transmission risk than a benefit in the general population. … In the open environment, no one should be wearing face coverings.” (American Institute for Economic Research, Oct. 16, 2020.)

    Finally, a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine on May 21, 2020, concluded: “We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection.

  3. Apparently there is a mental illness that is consuming the minds of people. I read head lines such as the one here 2+2 is racists or 5, or “Maryland Opens “Special Clinic” to Give Latinos COVID-19 Vaccines in Biggest Counties”, or a “news anchor” sees joe Biden as a mirror image of Ronald Reagan, or Pelosi says that joe Biden is doing a good job along the border along with the states having to pass legislation that their state will not follow a federal law that violates the second amendment.

    I thought that EACH OFFICIAL SWORE and oath to support and defend the constitution. Apparently that oath has NO meaning to these democrats and some republicans wearing democrat suits and that is OK because no accounting is required of them.

    Money for “infrastructure ” that in reality is redistribution of wealth. Taxes for businesses that in the demented mind of the democrats are willing to lie to us and to themselves that us the middle class will not have the cost of these redistribution taxes passed on to our pockets.

    My, these people are ill.
