Mathematics in the Seattle school district will soon involve teachings about how the study was “appropriated” by Western culture as apart of a movement to “rehumanize” math if the social justice bureaucrats get their way.
The proposed new K-12 framework will focus on how math has been used by Western culture to foment systems of oppression. One such teaching will focus on math’s origins “in the ancient histories of people and empires of color.” Another will explore how math is used to oppress marginalized groups, and how power dynamics are wielded in the math classroom.
This is being done as apart of a nationwide movement to inject ethnic studies across the entire curriculum, even into areas such as math where it doesn’t make much sense. Educational professionals hope to export this type of math teaching throughout every school district in the country before long.
“Seattle is definitely on the forefront with this,” said Robert Q. Berry III, the president of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). “What they’re doing follows the line of work we hope we can move forward as we think about the history of math and who contributes to that, and also about deepening students’ connection with identity and agency.”
The NCTM made these recommendations in a report issued at their annual conference in 2018. They argued that the Algebra-Geometry-Algebra 2 trifecta that has been the bedrock standard for generations must evolve to conform with social justice norms.
There will be less of an emphasis toward “getting the right answer” in the new guidelines. There will also be a move against “remedial” and “honors” courses because they feel they are harmful for the feelings of minority students.
“Tracking … in some cases puts students into terminal mathematics course pathways that are not mathematically meaningful and do not prepare them for any continued study of fundamental mathematics concepts,” the NCTM report said.
The curriculum is largely based off the idea of ethnomathematics, which was created out of whole cloth in the 1970s by Brazilian math professor Ubiratàn D’Ambrosio. Rochelle Gutiérrez of the University of Illinois-Urbana/Champaign has championed the idea of “rehumanizing” math in recent years.
“Math education has been very focused on access and closing the achievement gap, around grit and growth mindset. Those ideas are centered around individuals, and ways of thinking they need to adopt. We haven’t focused enough on identity or systems of power,” Gutiérrez said.
“Students should be able to see themselves in the curriculum, recognize math as a tool for making their lives better, and question what math is, and the purpose of math,” she said.
It will not be long before the new social justice math is pushed in every public school district, as liberal academics devise devious schemes to propagandize precocious students against Western Civilization.
Baltimore Cop Suspended After Taking Down Woman Who Was Beating Another Police Officer
The rioters are protected by the system.
A Baltimore law enforcement officer has been suspended for punching a woman as she attacked another cop in the riots on Friday night.
The unruly black woman started beating up a white cop after attempting to gently nudge her off of what appears to a cop car. The now-suspended black police officer punched her to stop the attack, which sent her to the ground.
The video can be seen here:

“The officer has been removed from his assignment, and [is] on administrative duties until the outcome of that investigation,” said Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison, who is making it clear that the rioters have carte blanche to the destroy the town under his watch.
Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young, who lords over one of the worst crime-infested sh*thole cities in all of America, also issued a statement sympathizing with the rioting thug.
“I believe the first officer, who was struck multiple times by the woman, showed remarkable restraint by not retaliating as he was being assaulted,” Young said in a released statement. “The woman should have been placed under arrest and not assaulted. Our system of justice does not involve the concept of an ‘eye for an eye.’ ”
The Baltimore Police Department made a post on their Facebook page indicating that the Department’s Special Investigations Response Team unit is investigating the matter.
“The Deputy Commissioner for PIB has directed a full review and has suspended the officer’s police powers during the investigations,” they wrote.
“We have been informed that BPD immediately suspended the officer and referred the case to the State’s Attorney’s Office for investigation. The Monitoring Team will continue to watch this situation and remains as committed as ever to actively monitoring all situations like this,” the police department’s Consent Degree Monitoring Team wrote in a tweet.
Here are some other clips from the Baltimore demonstrations, which are still ongoing:

Rioters are realizing that cities like Baltimore will allow them to commit acts of violence with relative impunity. These images are a sign of things to come in diverse and multicultural America.
