When it comes to pupils who score higher than 750 on the math portion of the SATs, Asians outnumber whites nearly 2-1 in raw numbers, despite that fact that whites outnumber Asians by a clip of about 10-1 in the USA.
In the only way we know how to quantify such things”by scores on math tests, duh!”it would appear that if math is indeed “racist,” it is biased strongly against non-Asians.
According to test scores, math absolutely hates black people. On average, they score a measly 428 in math on the SATs, a robust 170 points behind Asians. Clumsy attempts to improve black math scores has led to what is known as “The L.A. Math Proficiency Test,” which has gone through several humorous incarnations over the years. In Manitoba, a teacher was disciplined for asking their students to calculate “how many “tricks” per day three prostitutes must turn to support their pimp Rufus’s cocaine habit.” Last year, a retiring Alabama teacher was put on leave after allegedly posing this question to her math class:
Tyrone knocked up 4 girls in the gang. There are 20 girls in his gang. What is the exact percentage of girls Tyrone knocked up?
SAT scores in math are also virulently misogynist, seeing as women average 32 fewer points than men on them, a pattern which has remained unbroken since the 1970s.
Trying to inject unquantifiable social-justice pieties into a discipline which operates with cold and brutal efficiency is a severe case of overstepping the boundaries. At the very most, dumb and purely emotional ideas such as “social justice” should be confined to the philosophy and religious departments.
Like science, math is amoral and non-ideological. Those who can”t differentiate between math and social justice are, as my father used to say, people who can”t tell their ass from a hole in the ground.
