    Math is the subject that is LEAST susceptible to cultural biases. By far.

    The only truth about Woke Math is that Nothing from Nothing Leaves Nothing.

    Woke math leaves the students with absolutely Nothing. Nothing they can use. Nothing they can teach. Absolutely Nothing.

    Woke is zero-sum.
    Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the government's purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.

    Okay, math is racist. Behaving in school is racist. Simple solution: Just make math illegal, and might as well just outlaw education while we're at it. The country and the future will suffer for it, but the important thing is that we feel good that we've done something woke.

    Seriously, how racist are these leftists who are saying this? They're basically saying black people are too stupid to do math and they are too savage to behave in school. Yet black people continue to vote Democratic.

    it is in the same vein as blacks are incapable of getting voter IDs.

    Why though is math racist? Simply put, because blacks score lower on math tests. Given those outcomes, it must be racist. Any system where black score inordinately worse off, must be racist. As with anything CRT though, it is found in effects and not causes. This is the new definition of racism that has to do with power, oppression, it is not the racism we all know that involves intentional discrimination.

    Math is proof that universal truth exists. That is why these "progressive" freaks are trying to destroy it.
    Power always thinks it has a great soul, and vast views, beyond the comprehension of the weak. And that it is doing God's service when it is violating all His laws.

    Math is one of the few things we can all agree on. It’s not debateable
    One can be sure that he who says he knows knows nothing

    Another thing we ought to all agree on is Woke just doesn't add up.
