It would appear that a “white self-loathing” professor along with her irrational logic is guilty of perpetuating “WHITE PRIVILEGE” so says this latest fruitcake Math Professor Rochelle Gutierrez.
The University of Illinois educator claims that the ability to solve geometry and algebra problems and or teaching such subjects, makes you (assuming you’re white), responsible for extending “WHITE PRIVILEGE.”
Professor Gutierrez appearing on Fox News laid out her views on the subject in an article she wrote targeting her math colleagues within academia titled, “Building Support for Scholarly Practices in Mathematics Methods.”
In which she says: “School mathematics curricula emphasizing terms like Pythagorean Theorem and pi perpetuate a perception that mathematics was largely developed by Greeks and other Europeans,” thus the “WHITE PRIVILEGE,” angle.
Moreover her not so veiled attempt in politicizing the subject of math which is perhaps one of the few subjects not influenced by ambiguities, abstracts, theory and assumptions, by suggesting that educators should somehow understand and negotiate the politics outside the classroom.
“On many levels, mathematics itself operates as whiteness. Who gets credit for doing and developing mathematics, who is capable in mathematics, and who is seen as part of the mathematical community is generally viewed as white,” she writes.
She further writes; “mathematics operates with unearned privilege in society, “just like whiteness.”
Provost John Wilkin told Fox News that Gutierrez is an established professor and admired among her peers stating; “As with all of our faculty at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Prof. Gutierrez has the rights of academic freedom necessary to pursue scholarship and research on important subjects and to reach conclusions even if some might disagree with those conclusions.”
The absurdity of Professor Gutierrez’s anti-white analogy regarding mathematics simply reaffirms the lengths with which academia will go to in pushing the concept of “WHITE PRIVILEGE,” which actually promotes reverse discrimination, within minority communities, adding to the division that now exists among the races.
Moreover, if “self-loathing” whites like Professor Gutierrez actually believed in what she’s selling then she as a “math professor” is responsible for encouraging “white privilege” and therefore should do the right thing and resign, as an act of conscience.
Do you believe that Professor Gutierrez’s article is nothing more than progressive political spin designed to continue the narrative of “white privilege” as a political tool?
