Maths is racist! Who knew?
Seattle School says Maths is racist, used to oppress people of color.

http://joannenova.com.au/2019/10/seattle...-of-color/

Jesus Christ. Every day, when I thought I've heard it all, up pops another shade of cray I haven't even imagined before. Well done for creativity! Clap
WTF is wrong with America? Seriously. Why is anybody even entertaining this shit?

I give up...


Since we're on the stupid train, here's another!
Obesity is a result of racism.

Quote:A black female gender studies professor by the name of Brittney Cooper said obesity is essentially racially biased, especially during this current day and age in "Trump's America."





Basically, white racist people stress out black females. The stress changes them physiologically where diets aren't effective anymore.
OK Sounds legit Dunno
No God, No fear.

Too bad Seattle school ethics board never claimed that. It said that math is used to oppress people of colour. There is a difference.

ignoramus, perhaps link us instead to a source that actually cares about accuracy and representing facts truthfully.
"Our attitudes towards things like race or gender operate on two levels. First of all, we have our conscious attitudes. This is what we choose to believe. These are our stated values, which we use to direct our behavior deliberately ... But the IAT [Implicit Association Test] measures something else. It measures our second level of attitude, our racial attitude on an unconscious level - the immediate, automatic associations that tumble out before we've even had time to think. We don't deliberately choose our unconscious attitudes. And ... we may not even be aware of them. The giant computer that is our unconscious silently crunches all the data it can from the experiences we've had, the people we've met, the lessons we've learned, the books we've read, the movies we've seen, and so on, and it forms an opinion." - Malcolm Gladwell

RE: Maths is racist! Who knew?
The percentage of african americans that are below the poverty line combined with the tendency of grocers to locate themselves nearer to money means that african americans are less likely to have access to a healthy diet than to a dollar store diet. A similar dynamic exists with school funding since it's linked to property values, leaving many african americans without the knowledge, if they had the opportunity. Add to this the fact that the snap program is essentially a subsidy for grain processors, and you might understand how racism is a main contributor to obesity.

Don't worry, though, since the dollar store model is predicate on locating itself where a walmart would fail, and with school funding being raided by the for profit crowd, and the need for public assistance reaching great depression levels, no...no nvm, it's only going to get worse.

You asked wtf was wrong with america, and the answer to that is lots - but one of those things is systemic racism. Being systemic, there's very little that it doesn't effect.

If only she had said what you said.
Instead she blamed her weight on stress from racism.
Ridiculous. :-)

Add stress on top of all of that, do you think that it wouldn't contribute? You created this thread to minimize and ridicule. Who's being ridiculous, really?

Alot of the same, though poor fat white people still don't show up with the same weight in the statistics which lay out the issue.

Consider systemic racism a wildly successful pilot program that's being rolled out to the wider public.
