Math Education Professor Denounces Merit as Racist

Someone needs to call the Thought Police; racism has been uncovered at Brooklyn College:

[Brooklyn College math education professor] Laurie Rubel implicates both meritocracy and “color-blindness” as ideological precepts that hold back racial minorities from succeeding in math classes in an article for the peer-reviewed Journal of Urban Mathematics Education.

Rubel barks that the concept of merit “functions as a tool of whiteness.”

Her hatred of whiteness indicates that she is no racist, as liberals define the term. But how low must your opinion of nonwhites be to assume that basing advancement on merit rather than racial set-asides will reliably be to their disadvantage?

Rubel recommends that math teachers incorporate more social justice issues into math lessons, but warns that even “teaching for social justice” can be a “tool of whiteness” if teachers are not sufficiently attuned to the experiences of minority students.

She explains that this is because even the wokest teachers may not have completely purged themselves of the politically incorrect belief that effort is rewarded.

Again we see that if you are not a Person of Color, whatever you do will probably be wrong. So curl up in a corner and quietly hate yourself until the rest of the world manages to catch up.

    Brooklyn College was infested with Communists 25 years ago, now they are unapologetic and unafraid Communists. The head of the Journalism department http://www.nydailynews.com/authors?author=Ron-Howell is an open communist who espouse anti-white and anti-Italian bigotry as a writer for the NY Daily News, his job is secure in Cuomo and Sandinista Bill’s Utopia

  • THOUGHTCRIMINAL2084

    That is the tribe that ruled that school when I was there.

    I am so ashamed for having gone to Brooklyn College now. My degree has been absolutely worthless for 20 years. I was subjected to more subtle anti-catholic bigotry than what is openly espoused now – but it was very real then. One of my “semitic” professors in 1994 openly admitted to singling me out for being “tall and blonde,” giving me unwarranted low grades and blaming me for leading a “resistance” in her classroom.

    I barely spoke and knew no one in her class. Then she admitted it was “the large Puerto Rican man who had sat near me, but frankly she was afraid of him”. This is the shit that went on then and now I read this virulent hate written by a current member of the Brooklyn College Journalism program. I can only imagine being a student in this despicable bigot’s “class” today. daily two-minute hate.

    “Rubel barks that the concept of merit “functions as a tool of whiteness.””
    so I guess then she supports the implications of ‘The Bell Curve’ and that ALL minorities are literally morons so white people should stop being successful because racism.

    Teach algebra and keep your socialist yap shut.

  • Callawyn

    She must be familiar with the fact that IQ is genetic, varies by race, and that Hispanics are, on average, a full standard deviation below Caucasians. African Americans more than two standard deviations below, and that Sub-saharan Africans have IQ’s that average, at best, 70 (in some countries less than 40).

  • Franklyfrank

    Only someone who can’t succeed on her own merit would argue against it.
    She’s a racist, and apparently stupid as well.

  • Franklyfrank

    Oh, and by the way, Ms. Rubel, math class is supposed to about, you know, math, not social justice.Too bad the students aren’t getting what taxpayers, paid for.

  • Franklyfrank

    Not only should white people stop being successful, but she also puts forward the notion that guilty whites like herself, should “save”them.
    Doesn’t it occur to some of these minorities that her view is inherently racist because she believes all minorities to be innately subpar at academics??

  • Franklyfrank

    They should have their funding pulled. Really. No more taxpayers money, they can raise it on their own.
    Also, to your point, when Leftists are too scared to confront actual people & problems, they look for a scapegoat, that would be you, in your case. I am sorry that happened to you, and you are right it goes on all the time. It’s one of their favorite tactics because they know decent people won’t respond in kind back, because decent people don’t sabotage others.
    Also it shows the LEFTISTS to be the dishonest COWARDS they are.

  • Thankfully meritocracy, with no consideration of race, is what pushes the best to the top in sports such as the NBA.

  • THOUGHTCRIMINAL2084

    Their funding is now guaranteed by my property taxes thanks to “free” tuition. My family paid my full tuition for me to be maltreated and discriminated against. Now I pay for freeloaders to be indoctrinated to hate me, attack me and rob me. Isn’t the New America a wonderful place? We just are not safe here anymore.

  • Ol’ Uncle Lar

    Would I be remiss in guessin’ her students in Tel Aviv outclassed her students in Manhattan by a long ways.

  • Franklyfrank

    It’s true. A complete mess, but why I feel, I have to open my big, fat yap, wherever & whenever. The Left has dictated the terms of academics & conversation for too long and sadly the schools have been allowed thanks to their comrades in office. Gross.The people who are paying taxes to the city & state need to start complaining loudly & unceasingly to their reps.

  • THOUGHTCRIMINAL2084

    “Our” governor has already stated that people like me do not belong in his NY, because that is just “not who we are.” They want us dead, but not before they take every penny they can from us and hopefully put us in prison too.

    I know. In fact, I just wrote him a letter telling him how disingenuous his Progressive policies are to NY State and how he wants to sue the Federal Government because of the tax overhaul just to poke Trump, etc. I am sure he won’t care, if he even reads the damn thing, but I have write/say/ do something.
    I feel your anger and I am 100 percent with you.
    Maddening.

  • THOUGHTCRIMINAL2084

    That bastard worked for and protected a serial child rapist that molested dozens of kids I grew up with in the office next to Cuomo’s. Andrew Cuomo knew exactly what was happening. He suddenly quit to take a job paying a third of what he was being paid because he feared his political career would be jeopardized by remaining working for a pedophile – https://www.scribd.com/document/327564828/USA-Confidential-December-1998

  • geeknerd

    What about East Asians? Aren’t they a full standard deviation ABOVE Caucasians?

  • Callawyn

    The professor in the article wasn’t concerned with them.

    Same with Jewish people, also a standard deviation above Caucasians.

    Universities discriminate against Asians and Jews even worse than they discriminate against whites.
