I wish I could believe this is a hoax but the progressive war on math is well established. It started with the war on x and y (algebra):
Brittany Marshall, a self-described teacher and Ph.D. student, took to Twitter this past weekend to voice her displeasure about the concept of 2+2=4, saying the “idea” of the simple math equation is merely “cultural.”
“Nope the idea of 2+2 equaling 4 is cultural and because of western imperialism/colonization, we think of it as the only way of knowing,” wrote MarshallPaula Bolyard, “Orwellian: Teacher Blames ‘Western Imperialism,’ ‘Colonization’ for Concept of 2+2=4” at PJMedia
Responding to another Woke contributor to the online discussion, Bollard writes, “Ok, Kim, but we’re talking about math here, not history. Math does not lie, nor does it change with the political winds or your feelings. The iPhone you typed those tweets on is based on the binary system—ones and zeroes, not fives and four thousands.”
One thing the progressive Woke perspective will certainly do is trap disadvantaged students in poverty. They will be forever consumers, not creators, of technology and the power and prosperity are largely on the creation side.
